Berkeley Mayor Recognizes Black History Month, Swears in New Police Officers

BERKELEY TWP-At Monday night’s Council meeting, new Police Officers were sworn in and Mayor Amato proclaimed February to be African American Month in Berkeley Township.

Recognizing this year’s theme as “African Americans in Times of War,” Mike McNeil from the NAACP received a Proclamation from Mayor Amato and the Township Council, honoring the brave men and women who served their country, including the Tuskegee Airman and those who fought during WWII.

Mayor Amato and Police Chief Karin DiMichele presided over the swearing in of new Police Officers Michael Drybola and Sean Varaday. We welcome them both to Berkeley Township.
