Toms River Township

Toms River, NJ

Maurice "Mo" Hill


Pledge Summary

Toms River Township is a large town in Coastal New Jersey that roughly 95,000 people call home. We have a unique mix of natural conditions, from sandy beachfront areas to heavily forested cover, wetlands to farmlands, preserved open space to dense residential areas. Toms River has purchased hundreds of acres to preserve as open space, providing habitat for wildlife. Each year, we continue to make great strides in water conservation, preserving open space, clean recreation on the water, and so much more. I support the National Wildlife Federation and its community engagement initiatives, and look forward to continuing the work to ensure pollinators, and especially Monarchs, are thriving for years to come. - Mayor Maurice “Mo” Hill
