Robert Tillotson declines deputy mayor nomination, W. Theodore Bourke elected for the position.
Millburn's Township Committee decided to maintain the status quo and re-elected Sandra Haimoff as mayor at Wednesday night's re-organization meeting. "I would like to thank the committee for re-electing me as chairman of the committee for another year," Mayor Haimoff said. The returning mayor started her tenth year on the committee after being sworn in. Robert Tillotson was the only committee member that voted against Haimoff's re-election as mayor and declined a nomination as deputy mayor. Tillotson said he could not give the mayor his full support. Therefore, he said, it would be inappropriate for him to serve as deputy mayor. Committee member W. Theodore Bourke nominated him for the post. After Tillotson’s declined the post, the …

Mayor, running unopposed, gets all but one vote in the Republican Primary.
As election nights go in Millburn, it was pretty ho-hum. Mayor Sandy Haimoff faced no challenger in the Republican Primary and no one was on the ballot for the Democrats, so the contest for the Township Committee was over practically before it started. There was only one Republican write-in vote, so Haimoff's 540 votes easily gave her 99.82 percent of the vote. While 382 Democrats voted in Millburn and Short Hills in the primary, they had no one running for Township Committee so if they wanted to vote for someone, they would have to write them in. Seven voters did just that.

Mayor Sandra Haimoff will run for re-election to the Township Committee in November.

The republican mayor has been endorsed by the local republican party and has been on the Township Committee nine years. She was on the Board of Education for 12 years prior to that. She has also served on the Planning Board, the Zoning Board of Adjustment, the Hartshorn Arboretum board, the Environmental commission and was president of the Hartshorn PTA. The last year was a particularly difficult one to be serving the Township Committee, what with Tropical Storm Irene flooding downtown and nearby Washington and South Mountain neighborhoods, and leaving the town without water or electricity for a week or more. Then there was the October snowstorm, …

Township Committee moves to closed session to discuss settlement; 2010 budget is passed
Millburn Mayor Thomas McDermott refuted a claim made by Livingston Mayor Arlene Johnson that Millburn is prepared to accept the settlement in Livington's on-going lawsuit with TMB Partners during Tuesday's Township Committee meeting. On August 2, the Livingston Township Council agreed to a settlement with TMB Partners that places restrictions on an affordable housing project on the Short Hills border. After speaking with McDermott, Johnson contended Millburn would accept the settlement. The Millburn Township Committee has a "friend on the court" status in the case, meaning it does not have a district claim to settle. But McDermott struck a different cord Tuesday night. "Millburn has not withdrawn from the case," said McDermott, who met …
