was sworn in a year ago as South Orange's 48th Village President. He was in May 2011, when the provisional ballots were counted.
"In the year since, so much has happened," wrote Torpey in a release. "So much so, that even with all of the frequent digital communication these days, it's important to take a block of time out and reflect on the past year. In that light, I addressed the Board and the public on April 30th, providing an update on what we've done over the past year, and what lies ahead. Watch the 2012 State Of The Village address or read about it from The Alternative Press."
Torpey also released a short video reflection on the year.
