Sal Iannaccone served on Hanover Township’s governing body for 36 years, 17 of them as mayor. He also served on the municipal planning board for 46 years, the environmental commission for 48 years, and the Hanover Sewerage Authority for 10 years. He is a founding member and chairman emeritus of the Whippany River Watershed Action Committee, a non-profit organization comprised of members representing 13 municipal governments, the Morris County Board of Freeholders, and other stakeholders committed to ensuring that the Whippany River is a valued, viable and well-managed resource for everyone.
Since his retirement as an elected official at the end of 1999, Mr. Iannaccone has devoted all of his energies and talents in working with the ARC of Morris County and the Allegro School in designing and building several group homes in the Hanover. In fact, he is currently working on another group home project in cooperation with the Allegro School, which provides quality education to children on the Autism Spectrum, keeping them with their families and preparing them for community living.
The Township Committee in Hanover says no other person best exemplifies the qualities of compassion, dedication and service to the Township—it’s older Americans and physically challenged citizens.
