The statement below is by Commissioner Louis Cappelli Jr. and Jeffrey Nash behalf of the Board in regard to the passing of Winslow Mayor Barry M. Wright.
“The Camden County community has been crushed with the passing of Winslow Township Mayor Barry Wright today. As a Board, we are shocked to lose someone that dedicated his life to the selfless endeavor of serving the residents of Winslow Township and Camden County as a dedicated civil servant. Barry was rooted in Winslow Township and after serving for 27 years as a township police officer, he continued to give back to his community by serving in elected office as a committeeman and then as a mayor for 16 years. Barry was the epitome of integrity and gave everything he had to building a better community for generations to come. He was a thoughtful and intelligent elected official who always put others first. Sadly, Barry has left large shoes to fill in Winslow and our thoughts and prayers are with his family right now in this most difficult time.
