Councilwoman Joanne Veech, who served as deputy mayor last year, was selected by her peers to serve as mayor for 2015. She is Randolph’s 46th mayor and the 8th woman to serve in this capacity. Councilman Roman Hirniak will serve as deputy mayor.

Mayor Veech outlined several projects in the works including the development of a parks and recreation master plan and a township-wide revaluation ordered by the county tax board. She also touted a “shop local” mindset to help keep our commercial tax ratables here in Randolph and touched on new development taking place including an assisted living complex on Quaker Church Road and townhome projects on Calais and Brookside roads.
