BREAKING – FIRST REPORT: Lakewood names DPW Director Pat Donnelly as new Township Manager

The Township moments ago has named a new Township Manager.

Pat Donnelly, the Director of Lakewood’s Department of Public Works, has been named as the new Township Manager to replace Tom Henshaw, who resigned this week.

Donnelly, who took over the DPW in 2016, came with experience as Director of Public Works in Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey.

As Director of DPW, he made significant changes to the Department, and was praised by many local officials and residents for doing an outstanding job during snow storms, Pesach/Spring cleanup and more.

“I’m appreciative of the Mayor and the Committee for giving me the opportunity to take on this new endeavor, and also the outpouring of support from the community,” Donnelly told TLS. “This is something I’ve worked extremely hard for to get to in my career, and I hope for myself and for the residents of Lakewood Township as a whole are ready to delve into a new era in this organization.”

Mayor Coles had only praise for Donnelly.

“Pat has proven time and again that he understands Lakewood, he enjoys being here, and I think he’s going to work for people in town for hopefully many years to come,” Coles said.

Donnelly’s position at the DPW will be filled by Phil Roux, a veteran at DPW.
