Post-brain surgery, 3-year-old leads Hillsborough – for a day

Mayor Shawn Lipani and Police Chief Michael MacMahon had the honor of sharing their duties with 3-year-old Adeline Eick as she was sworn in as Mayor for the Day and Police Chief for the Day.
Adeline, who had brain surgery on June 15, suffers from a rare disorder called constitutional mismatch repair deficiency syndrome (CMMRD) that leads to brain and other cancers in children.
In addition to taking the Oath of Office as both mayor and police chief on Aug. 4, Adeline also met Freddy, Hillsborough Township’s recently retired K9, and learned how to work the sirens and lights in a police vehicle, according to information provided by the township.
Township employees also presented Adeline’s parents with cards and letters of motivation, support and encouragement.
Crown Trophy donated Adeline’s personalized gavel.
