Mayor Jardim and Family Welcome New Daughter
By SUZETTE F. STALKER
Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times
WESTFIELD – Mayor Thomas C. Jardim and his wife, Karen Fountain, recently welcomed a brand new resident to Westfield – their second daughter, Charlotte Fey Fountain Jardim.
Weighing in at 7 pounds and 1 ounce and measuring 19½ inches in length at birth, the baby was born at 5: 52 p. m. on July 29 at Mountainside Hospital in Montclair. She joins big sister Cecile Elise, who turned 2 years old on May 29.
“Everything is going well. She’s a very beautiful, healthy baby,” remarked the girls’ proud father, who said little Cecile “just loves” her new sister.
Ms. Fountain described the baby as having dark brown hair and grayblue eyes, and her father’s mouth. “She looks like her sister did when she was born,” she remarked. The mother added that Charlotte is already “sleeping for long stretches.”
She reported that she was in labor for just two hours before baby Charlotte made her debut, adding that “we’re lucky we made it to the hospital in time. Thank God there wasn’t a lot of traffic on the Parkway.”
Charlotte’s grandparents include Barbara Fountain of Hendersonville, N. C. and the late Michael Fountain, and Joy and Edward Jardim of Millington.
Currently in his second term as Mayor, Mr. Jardim decided not to seek a third term this year. He said he wanted to spend more time with his family, while also citing responsibilities toward his practice with a Newark law firm. In 1996, Mr. Jardim became the first Democrat to be elected Mayor of Westfield in 84 years.
Although presently a stayathome mom, his wife intends to return to
work three days a week starting in January as Coordinator of Community Health Services for Union County, where she has developed a mobile health van that she anticipates will be up and running by the end of this year.
Once in full operation, the van will provide health services for adults, children and senior citizens throughout Union County.
