April Valley Drive resident Pamela Borek was named Hillsborough's municipal clerk, Tuesday, awarded a three-year contract for the position by the Township Committee.
Borek joined the township staff almost exactly two years ago to the day, she said, working part-time. In March 2011, she was named secretary to then-Township Administrator Kevin Davis.
She was appointed acting clerk in September, when Anthony Ferrera was named township administrator.
Despite her rapid advancement, Borek said municipal government wasn't a career plan when she first started to work at the municipal complex—she holds an MBA from Fairleigh Dickinson University, with a concentration in internaitonal business, and a bachelor's in marketing from the University of Scranton.
As municipal clerk, Borek is responsible for the township's record keeping, and serves as the election administrator and secretary to the governing body. New Jersey law requires clerks to complete a certification program, which Borek competed in October.
She is a 15-year Hillsborough resident, with two sons in local schools.
Township Committee members thanked her after the vote during Tuesday's meeting, and Committeeman Frank DelCore quipped that "It's nice to have a clerk and not an acting clerk."
