A photo gallery beaming with Hilltopper pride.
Ward 2 Councilman Patrick Hurley ( @PatrickHurley on Twitter ) is a part time shutterbug. When he turns his camera lens on Investors Bank Field during a game his Summit pride shows, naturally. "I know football so well (and am familiar with Summit's play calling)," he told Patch, "I am often in a good spot to get the best shot." He says photography is one of the ways he stays grounded.

Summit vs. Cranford, Friday, Sept. 21 at 7p.m. Cranford Memorial Field

I married my husband, Pat Hurley, almost 24 years ago at St. Teresa’s Church here in Summit. When he decided to run for City Council this year he warned me about all the personal attacks on his character that would come his way as a result. I thought after having been through the first eight years of our marriage I had developed thick skin and that none of this would bother me. But, Mayor Glatt’s orchestrated and inaccurate attack on him does bother me, a lot. During those early years of our marriage, when I assume Mayor Glatt was just getting his feet wet in his father’s business, I, like thousands of military wives today had to live through month after month (totaling years) of my husband, a pilot in the Navy, being deployed first to the…
