Shrewsbury Township Mayor Passes After Battle with Pancreatic Cancer

Shrewsbury Township Mayor Edward P. Nolan passed away Sunday evening at the age of 73.

Gov. Phil Murphy announced Nolan’s death Monday during his daily press briefing, calling the mayor “a good man who loved Shrewsbury Township and loved serving its people.”

Nolan was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year and suffered other complications during his battle.

He served Shrewsbury Township for more than a decade after first being elected to the Shrewsbury Township Committee in 2009. He was reelected in 2012, 2015 and 2018.
