WW police, Lawrence Hopewell Trail to speak at annual meeting

The WWBPA at National Night Out in 2021.

The WWBPA holds its annual meeting via Zoom at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 10, 2022. You’ll hear from two exciting guest speakers: WW Police Chief Robert Garofalo (and/or his traffic sergeant, Kevin Loretucci, if he’s needed in an emergency) and Eleanor Horne, one of the founders of the Lawrence Hopewell Trail.

Chief Garofalo will discuss New Jersey’s new four-foot passing law that takes effect March 1 and which is intended to improve safety for cyclists, pedestrians, and drivers. He will discuss how it will be enforced, how the public will be educated, and what role you play to make it a success. 

Eleanor Horne, today one of the LHT co-presidents, will take us through what you’ll find along this varied, almost-completed 22-mile loop for walkers, runners and bicyclists, what to expect in the next few years, and how you can explore more of the trail with the LHT’s Saturday Morning Walking Club and other events.

Both will take questions after their presentations.

Vote on board members

In addition, the WWBPA board will highlight its own accomplishments in 2021 and ask you to vote on three-year terms for four board members and a two-year term for one board member. Only those with a paid-up 2022 WWBPA membership are eligible to vote.

Alison Miller, one of our founding trustees, is stepping down after 16 years. We thank her for her many contributions toward making West Windsor a better place to walk and bike, in particular her role in creating the Trolley Line Trail. Nominations for a new board member are being accepted through the end of this month.

Up for re-election to three-year terms are current President Dave Robinson, current Vice President Anne Clifton and Sean Rucewicz (elected by the board in late 2021 to fill Stacey Karp’s remaining term).

We thank Stacey as well as Joe Gorberg, who also stepped down during 2021, for their many years on the WWBPA board. Stacey was a stalwart at the farmers market and National Night Out; Joe served as a vice president and handled membership and email communications. He was replaced by Silvia Ascarelli; she is up for re-election for the remaining two years of that term.

The Zoom link will be sent a few days before the annual meeting.
