“RIP Former Township of Washington Mayor Janet Sobkowicz – she was always there for the kids in our community (even when we battled her Waldwick Warriors where she was a beloved teacher for decades). Janet is seen here presenting a proclamation to the 2013 State Champion Cardinals and never said “no” to anything the TD Club asked of her”
