The Galloway Township Republican League honored former Board of Education member Bob Iannacone at its annual Lincoln Breakfast at The Smithville Inn last week.

He was named the Galloway Township Republican of the Year at the Lincoln Breakfast on Saturday, March 29.

Iannacone served as a Board of Education member from 1994-2012.

Below is the text chronicling Iannacone’s biography, as it appeared in the program for the breakfast:

Born to Italian immigrants in Paterson, New Jersey, Bob Iannacone was first drawn to Atlantic County in 1979 in pursuit of employment opportunities related to two of what remain the area’s largest employers—the FAA Technical Center (called NAFEC at that time) and Atlantic City’s nascent casino industry. After joining the Sheet Metal Workers Local Number 10 upon graduating from Paterson’s Eastside High School, Bob would spend the next 25 years advancing through his trade. He achieved journeyman status in 1958, worked his way to being the sheet metal project manager for numerous casino projects, and eventually started his own joint venture.

In addition to being a successful tradesman and entrepreneur, Bob has also dedicated a great deal of his time to the community. In addition to serving 6 terms on the Galloway Township Board of Education, Bob was also elected Vice President and President of the Atlantic County School Board, and worked with the New Jersey State School Board as a delegate, member of the Board of Directors, and chairman of their Construction Review Committee. He has coached Baseball for GTAA, and served as the Vice President of the Galloway Township Police Athletic League. Bob was also involved with the construction of Imagination Station.

Bob and his wife, Grace, are the proud parents of three very successful children, Joseph, an account manager for a major software reseller, Mary, a sales coordinator for one of the preier real estate firms in New York City, and Diane, a Junior at The College of New Jersey working on a Master’s degree in Special Education. Bob also has three children from a previous marriage, Robert, an accountant for a major cosmetics firm, Michael, a landscape architect in California, and Donna, the executive vice president for a large insurance underwriter in North Jersey.
