The details


Teaneck, New Jersey was incorporated on February 19, 1895. It was created in Chapter XXXVII in the Acts of the General Assembly of the State of New Jersey in 1895. The office of mayor did not initially exist as such. In 1895, the township form of government was a direct democracy, with a three-member township council handling the affairs of the township between annual town meetings. The township council selected a chairman. Historian Griffin wrote that William W. Bennett "was the obvious (and unanimous) choice to serve as Teaneck's first township committee chairman, roughly the equivalent of mayor and manager combined." New Jersey revised township organization in 1899, and in 1910 Teaneck moved to a five-man township council. By 1962, Teaneck had both a mayor and a deputy mayor. The Mayors of Teaneck, New Jersey are as follows:
