Hillsborough Hall of Fame

The New Jersey Hall of Fame has officially inducted its first fifteen members. Honorees include all of the usual suspects - Bruce Springsteen, Frank Sinatra, Yogi Berra, Thomas Edison - and even a couple whose link to New Jersey is a little more tenuous, such as Harriet Tubman.

Only one politician is included in the list, former senator Bill Bradley. I suppose they are saving most of the politicos for the Hall of Shame!

If Hillsborough Township were to start its own Hall of Fame, who would you nominate? Our Superbowl heroes perhaps? - or how about former governor Peter Vroom?

Would you allow living persons to be honored, as the New Jersey Hall of Fame does? How about a waiting period like in the Baseball Hall of Fame (not sure how that would work).

O.K. Your turn. I'm ready. Let me have it!

  1. Governor Vroom is a good start.

    The Duke Family: Think about the difference in Hillsborough if those 2,700 acres were housing developments and factories instead of preserved land.
