It is with great sorrow that South Brunswick has lost our longtime Mayor Frank Gambatese this morning after a brief illness. Mayor Gambatese was the longest serving mayor in the history of South Brunswick after being elected in 2002 but his total commitment to South Brunswick spans 20 years working diligently to improve the quality of life for not only the township’s residents but also businesses and the environment.The Kendall Park Fire Company and the South Brunswick Fire Service will truly miss Mayor Gambatese and his tireless effort and dedication to the community and public safety.Mayor Gambatese is survived by his two sons Franc Jr. and John Paul; along with his three daughters MaryAnne Bross, Rosemary Peng, and Christine Alencewicz; and loved by 11 grandchildren.
