Council Member Resigns to Serve as a Judge
Posted: July 25, 2011
Longtime councilman Gary Algeier stepped down from his post July 14th in order to join the New Jersey judiciary as a workers compensation judge.
First elected to the Randolph Township Council in 1996, Gary served as mayor in 2003 and 2006 and has been very active in township recreation programs for more than two decades.
Township Manager John Lovell had nothing but praise for Algeier’s tenure on the council. “Gary can take credit for many of Randolph’s achievements but my sense is that his greatest contribution was leading the community as a team effort.”
Saying he will be missed by many, Lovell continued “Gary Algeier was an outstanding member of the council and is amongst the very best elected officials that I have had the good fortune to know and work for.”
The process for naming a replacement to Algeier’s seat will follow the procedures set forth in state statute. Because Algeier is a Republican, the Randolph members of the Morris County Republican Committee will select three names to be presented to the township council. The council will then choose Algeier’s successor, who will serve until the end of the year, at its August 4th meeting.
