Dec. 10, 2012 has a special meaning for the city as Mayor Andy Cook proclaimed it as Jack Hart Day in honor of a diligent individual who has contributed significantly with 21 years of service by serving 16 years on the Westfield Town Council and five years on the Westfield Board of Works and Public Safety.

“Jack’s a real pillar, not only for the city but also for me,” Cook said.

Cook said Hart has helped Westfield transition from a town of 5,000 to a city of 30,000 residents. Hart also works as the Westfield Washington Schools transportation director.

“His 21 years of service have been marked by exemplary dedication to the best interest of our community and we appreciate all of Jack Hart’s assistance,” Cook said.
