HIGHLANDS, NJ - Highlands Mayor Frank Nolan posted on facebook Thursday night that he will not be seeking a third term as Mayor of the borough.
"Thank you to so many people for encouraging me to run for a third term as mayor. The past six years have been tough with Irene, Sandy, and all the other set backs. Last year was the toughest with my own personal health issues. Those that are closest to me know I have truly enjoyed being an elected official for the past ten years. I am honored and humbled to have been able to serve the town and all its people.
I made some mistakes but tried my best to always do the right thing. My role as a father and husband has to come first. For this reason I will not be a candidate for mayor this November and will serve out my current term.
I want to thank all the great borough professionals, past and present I have had the pleasure of working with. The many council people and Mayor's who I may have had my differences with but at the end of the day I think we knew our common goal was the advancement of the town.
Special thanks to my wife and soulmate Lori Ann. You have stood by me through thick and thin and I love you forever."
