EDISON—More than 65 residents turned out on Dec. 17 for the Edison Call to Service Summit, featuring Mayor Jun Choi and Mayor-elect Toni Ricigliano, to learn about leadership opportunities on township boards and commissions.
The summit, hosted by the Citizens’ Campaign and the Metuchen Edison Woodbridge YMCA, was geared towards residents who moved into the township in the last five years, many of whom were unfamiliar with Edison’s government and politics.
Speaking at the event, Citizens’ Campaign chairman Harry Pozycki called upon Edison residents to answer the call to service to “bring their leadership to the service of the community and constructively participate in the development of public policy.“
The Citizens’ Campaign Middlesex County Chair Ron Tankiewicz, presented residents with insider tips on how to apply and gain appointment on local boards and commissions.
Edison Township has more than 20 boards and commissions established which have a significant impact on the quality of life in the community. There are several vacancies on the boards, and many more positions will be opening up in the new year.
The Citizens’ Campaign is leading a statewide “Jersey Call to Service” to inspire 5,000 citizens to take an active leadership role in their community.
