Mayor Colombi noted in particular Mr. Connell’s service as longtime Chair of the Haddonfield Municipal Alliance, local affiliate of the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism & Drug Abuse, which sponsors and supports activities and events that promote a healthy lifestyle, responsible decisions, and a culture of wellness.
