On September 18, 2012, during open public comment of the Westfield Town Council Meeting, Central Ave. resident Maria Carluccio approached the microphone to address the members of the town council on the ongoing issue of the HAWK pedestrian light crossing at the cul-de-sac'd intersection of Central & Cambridge.
When Mrs. Carluccio makes reference to Westfield requesting the location of the HAWK light, Mayor Andy Skibitsky interrupts and proceeds to perpetuate a lie once again. Mayor Skibitsky claims that it was Union County that decided the location of the light. Mayor Skibitsky has continued to perpetuate this lie and push blame on Union County.
TFoTM has obtained a copy of a letter sent to resident Adina Enculescu, from Union County engineer Tom Mineo that clearly states the following in the second paragraph: "According to Administrative Code (133-12), the County's role is to install traffic signals on county roads when requested to do so by a municipality. Westfield requested the installation and location of the light in question."
