This Day In History: 1967-01-02
The Republicans regained control of the Township Committee as Mrs. Alice M. Hazlewood a, and Lawrence Brennan was unanimously chosen mayor. In a surprise move John W. Leyden Jr. of Ridgewood was named Township Attorney. The Committee was presented with a petition signed by 250 requesting that John J. Warhol be named to the post instead of the previously announced choice, Mayor Richard DeKorte, who was present, rose to decline the appointment. His firm represents the interests of the Brennan interests and he wished to avoid any apparent conflict of interest.
