She previously served as a volunteer in numerous civic organizations including President of the Secaucus Middle School PTA and President of Secaucus High School PTA. Ms. Pirro also served as an elected member of the Secaucus Board of Education for six years. She has received numerous awards for her public service, including the New Jersey State Legislature Outstanding Community Service Award, Secaucus High School Community Honor Roll Award and American Cancer Society Bronze Star Award.
Mayor Michael Gonnelli offered his congratulations to Councilwoman Pirro. He stated, “When the County asked me to nominate a deserving woman for this honor, I immediately thought of Sue Pirro. She is a committed and determined public servant who always does what’s best for Secaucus. I speak not only for myself but for the entire Council when I say that Sue is a valued member of our administration. We are very proud and congratulate Sue and her family on this prestigious award.”
