Fair Haven Borough Administrator to Head New Jersey Statewide Association

Last month, Fair Haven borough administrator Theresa Casagrande took an oath of office and became the president of the New Jersey Municipal Management Association (NJMMA) at the 2017 Awards Luncheon and Executive Board Meeting hosted in Atlantic City. Ms. Casagrande has been the administrator in Fair Haven since 2011 and previously served as the administrator in Spring Lake Heights.

She is now president, leading an organization of professional local government administrators and assistants whose goal is to improve the quality of local government in New Jersey through professional management. The association creates an information network offering the free flow of ideas, thereby enhancing each member’s ability to deal with the problems and pressures of the profession. Each member is bound by a code of ethics that specifies 12 ethical principles of personal and professional conduct, including complete dedication to good government.

All but one of the Fair Haven Borough Council members and the mayor were able to attend the swearing-in a strong show of support for Ms. Casagrande, who formerly held the office of vice president of the NJMMA. The organization is the largest municipal organization of its type in the country.
