Hamilton Mayor Jeff Martin has named labor leader Fred Dumont and veteran township employee Kathleen Fitzgerald to top posts in his new administration.
Dumont, the former vice president of the New Jersey State Building and Construction Trades Council and the retired business manager of the Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers Local 89, will serve as director of the Department of Community Planning and Compliance.
Fitzgerald will head the Department of Health, Recreation, Seniors and Veterans Services, a post she held from 2002 to 2007. She is a registered nurse and a 33-year township employee who currently serves as supervisor of the Hamilton Township Senior Center/Division of Seniors and Veterans Service.
“In Kathy and Fred, I believe we have two outstanding individuals with the experience and skills to serve in these leadership positions,” said Martin, who took office on Wednesday. “I want to thank them for their commitment to public service and the citizens of Hamilton Township.”
Dumont hopes to use his trade union experience top help oversee Hamilton’s Division of Inspections.
“With my experience working with the business community regarding development related issues, I am excited about my new position and looking forward to being a part of this administration,” Dumont said.
Dumont also serves as a member of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority board.
The nominations require approval by the Township Council.
