FANWOOD – Fanwood’s incumbent mayor and council members won reelection unopposed Tuesday night.
Democratic Mayor Colleen Mahr won a sixth four-year term, with 1,430 votes. Council President Jeffrey Banks (1,400) and Councilman Anthony Carter (1,405) won new three-year terms, ensuring the Democrats’ unanimous control of the borough council, which last saw a Republican member a decade ago.
Ms. Mahr’s mayoral tenure is exceeded in Union County by both Elizabeth Mayor Christian Bollwage, who was first elected in 1992 and has won re-election every four years since then, and Sal Bonaccorso, who has served as mayor of Clark since 2000. Ms. Mahr won her second, fourth and fifth terms in 2007, 2015 and 2019 without any opposition.
Fanwood Board of Education member Amy Boroff also was reelected in an uncontested race, garnering 1,257 votes.
