Today, former Westfield Mayor, John Palczynski, died. Palczynski, who was mayor several decades ago sat on the Westfield Gas & Electric commission. He was 78. He was mayor from 1968-1973. His administration is credited with bringing Westfield mayor's office into the modern era.
Any additional details I could offer, I cannot release in deferrence to his family.
I would ask that readers to keep Palczynski and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
