Kearny Councilman Jonathan Giordano passed away on Saturday, January 7th, 2016. A dedicated citizen of Kearny, Councilman Giordano served the as Second Ward Councilman since 2015, performing a “perfect job” according to Mayor Alberto Santos. During his tenure, he took a special pride in supporting the Kearny Police Department and the Kearny Fire Department. Prior to serving as Councilman, he served on the Kearny Planning Board.
In September, Councilman Giordano (left) and Councilman Konopka visited our Hudson ASCS campus and met with School Director Marjorie Marenco and the administrative team. This meeting was one of our first interactions with elected officials from the town, and Councilman Giordano was a shining example of professionalism. He was warm, friendly, and came to our school with kindness and in the spirit of collaboration. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and son, to Mayor Santos and to his colleagues on the council, and to the entire Kearny community. We are grateful to have made his acquaintance, and we know that he left his community a better place.
