BOONTON — At its annual Fundraiser on September 13, 2020, the Tri-Town Republican Club of Boonton, Boonton Township, and Mountain Lakes honored former Mayor and current First Ward Alderman Cyril “Cy” Wekilsky. Numerous current and former elected officials attended the event.
Cy Wekilsky was first elected to the Board of Alderman in 1988 and was been re-elected to office several times. He was elected Mayor in 2005 and diligently served in that office for ten years — 2006 through 2015. Prior to joining the Board of Aldermen, Wekilsky served for eight years as an elected member of the Boonton Board of Education and is very familiar with local education issues.
Wekilsky was honored with a plaque that read “Tri-Town Republican Club Honors Cyril ‘Cy’ Wekilsky. We thank you for your many years of dedicated and outstanding service to the Town of Boonton as a mayor and alderman and to the Republican Party.”
The Town of Boonton Board of Aldermen consists of a Mayor elected at large to serve for four years, and eight aldermen from four wards that serve alternating two-year terms. This November, Wekilsky is running for re-election to his position as First Ward Alderman and faces Democrat Waqar Khokar. In 2018, Wekilsky defeated Khokar 57.82% to 41.89%.
