“The NAHRO Fellows Program honors individuals for their accumulated wisdom and mastery as seen by their achievements and their actions within their own communities,” the group said in a statement.

“NAHRO Fellows have demonstrated, over a sustained period of time, their commitment to improve the housing conditions of their fellow citizens and/or the viability and sustainability of the community in which they live and work. Recipients may use ‘NAHRO Fellow’ professionally as a designation and will be called on to mentor its members.”

Bayonne Mayor Jimmy Davis commended Mahon, the executive director of the Bayonne Housing Authority for three decades, on the recognition.

“He began with the BHA as Director of Staff Operations in 1991. John was promoted to Assistant Executive Director in 1992. As executive director since 1994, he has overseen the management, construction, and modernization of public housing properties in Bayonne,” he said.

“John has developed great expertise in the areas of housing and redevelopment. I hope that NAHRO members across the country will call on him for advice and benefit from his wisdom in the years ahead.”
