On behalf of myself, the members of the Howell Township Council and administration, and the residents of Howell, we send our condolences to the residents of Farmingdale on the passing of Mayor Jay Morgan.
For more than a decade Mayor Morgan was a dedicated public servant working tirelessly to provide the highest quality of life for the residents he was so proud to serve.
As our closest neighbor, our friend Mayor Morgan was a fixture at the many civic events honoring Howell's citizens, veterans, and emergency service personnel. Jay's presence was always welcomed in our Council chambers and I always felt I had a friend in the audience when I looked out and saw his smiling face.
In addition to his official duties as an elected official, Jay Morgan was also an active volunteer in his community and was a fixture at every Howell Day event helping out the local Lions Club. His strong and caring presence will be missed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and the residents of Farmingdale at this time.
William J. Gotto
Mayor, Howell Township
