New public works director appointed in Hamilton
April 5, 2013 by Mark
The mayor of Hamilton, Kelly Yaede, recently announced that a new public works director, David Carothers, has been appointed following the retirement of the current director, Frank Ragazzo.
Although Ragazzo was the public works director for only two years, he had had many years’ experience in public service. He was chairman of the Republican committee in the township and head of the Mercer Parks Commission. He has also served on the Lottery Commission for New Jersey since 2001 and works with Re/Max Tri County as a real estate agent.
Ragazzo feels that it is now time for him to retire and he offers his congratulations to Carothers, who was the emergency management coordinator for the town, with whom he has been working for the past few years. He is confident that Carothers will be an outstanding director of public works.
Carothers has also been serving the Township of Hamilton for over 10 years, with some of that time being spent in several capacities in the Department of Public Works, and says that he is glad that he can continue to do so in another capacity.
The Mayor has been notified by Ragazzo that he was planning to retire and agreed to make it official in the spring. Yaede was pleased that she was able to find someone who already works in the Township to take over Ragazzo’s position.
