Little Silver’s Tale of Two Mayors

By Don Galante

Don Galante

I have had the honor of serving my community as a Borough Councilman for 16 years. During that period, I worked with two incredible people who held the position of Mayor of Little Silver. The first eight years (2000 to 2008) were spent working and collaborating with Suzy Castleman. The second eight years (2011 to present) joining forces with Bob Neff. Although both terms are unique, due to different issues facing our town and our society, there are incredible similarities in both leaders and how they managed Little Silver.

I want to start by clarifying, being Mayor of Little Silver is not a ceremonial job.  The job entails many long hours, lots of hard work, tough decisions and difficult negotiations.  Being Mayor also means doing copious amounts of research in order to make the most educated decisions for the town.  These decisions are usually not the easy or popular ones. And while Suzy and Bob had a completely different approach, I never wavered in my belief that both Mayors have always had only the best interests of their constituents in mind. All decisions were for the greater good, not to win popularity contests or to post photos.
