RAHWAY, NJ — As the Rahway City Council closed the year with its final meeting of 2021 on Monday, December 13, it marked a more remarkable closing: the end of James Baker’s fifteenth and final year as a Rahway City Councilman.
A 1969 graduate of Rahway High School and former Board of Education member, Councilman Baker’s Rahway roots are without question. A longtime resident, Baker was first elected to the council in 2006 and earned re-election in 2010, 2014, and 2018 as Council Member at Large. In November, he won election to the Union County Board of County Commissioners.
As the four-term councilman assumes his new position in January, he brings to a close his 15th year serving Rahway through the city council—an accomplishment acknowledged and celebrated by city officials as Mayor Giaccobe presented Baker with a proclamation on Monday night. After much applause and well wishes, he returned to sit alongside his colleagues to fulfill his council duties one last time.
