MIDDLE TOWNSHIP – Cape May Point Borough Administrator Constance Mahon has been hired as Middle Township’s new business administrator, officials announced Wednesday morning.

She replaces Mark Mallett, who left in mid-December for another job. Mahon will be the municipality’s first female administrator.

Mahon, who also served as municipal clerk in Cape May Point, brings 13 years of public administration experience and a diverse background to Middle, according to a news release from Township Committeeman Tim Donohue.

“Connie Mahon filled in for our clerk, Kim Krauss, when Kim was out on maternity leave last spring,” Mayor Dan Lockwood said in a news release. “We were very impressed with her professionalism and work ethic. She wore many hats in Cape May Point and we expect that breadth of experience and knowledge of municipal government to be a great asset for our town. Connie has the positive energy and strong leadership skills we need, as we continue to push our agenda of right-sized government, fiscal responsibility and innovative problem solving.”

Mahon will join the township full time Monday, April 8. Before that, Mahon will work part time, meeting with department heads, the township’s auditor and the members of Township Committee in the coming weeks.

Details of her contract are still being finalized, according to a news release.

Mahon says she looks forward to the new challenge.

“I’ve been impressed with the goals and initiatives being pursued by Township Committee and I’ve had a great working relationship with deputy administrator/clerk Kim Krauss,” Mahon said in a news release. “During my years in Cape May Point, I’ve worked well with state officials, other municipal leaders and the county freeholder board. I expect those relationships to help me hit the ground running here in Middle Township.”

A 1989 graduate of Drexel University with a degree in business administration, Mahon worked in the private sector before accepting a position with Cape May Point in 2000. She lives in Cape May Point with her husband and a daughter.
