Chris Horner, Tax Collector at Neshanic
Sterling character is the very greatest asset a man may possess - particularly if he be a public figure. Representative of this type of personality, the newspaper's attention is drawn to the activities in Neshanic of Chris G. Horner, popular and well regarded citizen of that community. Mr. Horner has been tax collector for Hillsborough Township for many years, having originally received this post in 1910. During the ensuing years, he has, by his methods and policies, proven conclusively that the choice of the people was not misdirected when he was elected to office, for Mr. Horner has the best interests and welfare of his neighbors ever at heart.
In our feature reviews of those men who have done much to promote better conditions in their vicinity, and who have always placed the good of their community before personal gain, this writer is happy to mention the name name and activities of Chris Horner....tax collector at Neshanic.
Two things I find interesting about this article are that the position of tax collector was apparently an elected position (I wonder about dog catcher!), and that someone would gush about the tax collector! I'm sure people in 1933 complained about their taxes too.
