Bush appeared at AT&T headquarters on North Maple Avenue in Bernards Township where he targeted women voters and criticized government-controlled social programs on Friday afternoon, Sept. 18.

The president arrived at Morristown Municipal Airport at 2 p.m. and then traveled by limousine down Interstate 287. With women accounting for about three-quarters of the 450 people in the audience, Bush, who was trailing Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton in the polls, said family leave was needed but should be achieved through incentives to business.Mr. Bush made three prior trips to the area during his 30-year political career. On Sept. 22, 1968, when he was a Texas congressman, he attended a picnic at the New Vernon estate of Walter T. Margetts as a keynote speaker for presidential candidate Richard M. Nixon. On June 8, 1979, while running for president, he appeared at an outdoor reception at the Oldwick estate of Mr. and Mrs. Webster Todd where he spoke to some 350 Republican Party leaders. On Sept. 30, 1986, when he was vice president, he appeared at Roxiticus Golf Club in Mendham as part of a $250-per-plate lunch to boost the candidacy of Rep. Dean Gallo, R-11.https://www.google.com/calendar/event?eid=NDk4aXBoOTZ0a2ZzNGZqZ2RycmxyZDI0M21fMjAyMTA5MTggcTN2N2E0MDQzZTZia2U2cWFzNW02bXZjcG9AZw

Mayo agreed to determine “the status of the airport as it may be affected by any ordinance.”The airport was ultimately closed in the early 1980s. https://www.mrlocalhistory.org/somersethillsairport/ Click Linkhttps://www.google.com/calendar/event?eid=NDBzMWJrY2ZlM3MzZmd0ZnFna3Z2aWIxaXBfMjAyMTA5MTggcTN2N2E0MDQzZTZia2U2cWFzNW02bXZjcG9AZw
