Statement from Governor Murphy on the Passing of Buena Vista Mayor Chuck Chiarello

12/6/2019

“Chuck Chiarello was a mayor’s mayor and a model for what good municipal leadership could do for residents. He loved serving Buena Vista, he loved doing good things for Buena Vista, and he loved making sure we all knew to pronounce it ‘byoo-na.’ He was a respected leader among his fellow mayors, being one of only a handful to lead both the League of Municipalities and the Conference of Mayors. He was one of my earliest supporters, and he became my steadfast friend. I will miss his subtle wit and his great warmth. And, so will all of South Jersey and his colleagues from across the state.”
