“It is an honor to receive this award because it means more people are starting to take notice of what we have been working to accomplish,” said Mr. Villecco. “Members of NJWA and I have been pushing for real change for a long time, and each day we get a little closer to that goal.”
“Dominic has been a great asset to our association for many years, and his committee has been successful in generating awareness in the media and with key stakeholders for the diversion of 911 funds in the State,” said Rob Ivanoff, President of the Board of Trustees for NJWA. “It has been a long fight and we are proud to have Dominic as a champion on the side of improving 911 technology and service in New Jersey.”
