EDISON, NJ — Edison Township has awarded a $43,200 contract to Newark-based Jaffe Communications Inc., a media relations firm that will provide public information for Edison residents and promote the town’s economic development effort.
The Edison Township Council voted unanimously to award a one-year professional service contract to Jaffe Communications Inc. Mayor Thomas Lankey recommended outsourcing services to Jaffe Communications as a cost-effective way to provide “greater openness and transparency.”
Town officials said that by vigorously promoting local amenities and municipal services, Edison can position itself as a more desirable New Jersey destination for startups and for corporations and businesses seeking to relocate or expand.
Tony Gallotto would represent Edison and work in the best interests of the community, said Jonathan Jaffe, founder of Jaffe Communications.
A veteran newsman for 25 years, Gallotto covered Edison as an investigative reporter from 1988 until 2002, when he left The Star-Ledger as its Middlesex County’s Bureau Chief to join Jaffe Communications.
Over the past decade Jaffe Communications has built a reputation as a trusted resource of news and information for editors, news directors, and reporters throughout New Jersey and across the Tri-State area.
