Passing of League’s Bond Counsel Edward “Ed” McManimon

The League mourns the passing of Edward “Ed” J. McManimon III, 77, who died February 2, at his home with his family after a long illness. A longtime friend and supporter of the League, he was a recipient of the New Jersey League of Municipalities’ Distinguished Public Service Award in 2022, a longtime Bond Counsel for the organization, as well as a frequent and valued speaker at events and author for NJ Municipalities magazine.  

His efforts for the League were just a small portion of his illustrious legal career. He recently retired from McManimon, Scotland & Baumann, LLC, where he devoted his professional time advising municipalities, counties, school districts and governmental authorities in connection with their capital financing and related governmental requirements. He analyzed, developed, and implemented financial plans for redevelopment areas throughout New Jersey, and in the privatization of public water, wastewater, and solid waste systems. 

He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Christina; their two children, Maura Fennessy (Conor) and Christopher; and grandchildren, Liam McManimon, and Seamus and Killeen Fennessy. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, 72 Escher Street, Trenton, NJ 08609.
