Eric Inglis &
Meredith Sahi 2021
Your Choice for New Leadership in Mendham Township
April 17, 2021
Democratic Township Committee candidates Eric Inglis and Meredith Sahi plan to focus on infrastructure and responsive government.
They will square off against GOP incumbents Sarah Neibart and Nick Monaghan, who currently hold the positions of mayor and deputy major respectively, for the two three-year seats at stake in the Tuesday, Nov. 2 general election.
Inglis, 52, is a lifelong Morris County resident, volunteer, and attorney and Sahi, 47, is a small business owner and volunteer.
Inglis lives in Brookside with his wife, Grace Shin, and his youngest daughter, Parker, a sophomore at West Morris Mendham High School. His two older children, Mia and Phillip, are students at U.C.L.A. and U.S.C., respectively. Having lived in Mendham Township with his family since 2008, Inglis volunteered as a baseball, basketball, and soccer coach for nearly a decade and spent five years as president of the West Morris Soccer Club. During his tenure, he spearheaded the construction of lighted turf soccer courts in Mendham’s Borough Park, which transformed a dilapidated tennis court into a constant hub of youth sports activity.
Inglis also has a business background and plans to apply that experience to government. For nearly the past 20 years he has been a partner in the 109-year-old law firm, Schenck, Price, Smith & King, and he chairs the firm’s 35-lawyer litigation department.
Sahi and her family joined the Mendham Township community in 2019. She and her husband, Avi, have two children, Anjali, 7, and Akash, 5, who both attend Mendham Township Elementary School. Since arriving in Mendham, Sahi has volunteered as a Girl Scout Leader for her daughter Anjali’s troop; served as class parent for her son Akash’s pre-Kindergarten class; and is helping with the Walled Garden restoration project at Pitney Farm.
She is a founding member of The Mendhams Diversity Committee, a community organization working collaboratively to advocate and support diversity and inclusion in the Mendhams. She serves as the Co-Chair of the organization and leads the group’s Education Subcommittee.
Sahi was born and raised in New York City. She graduated from Barnard College with a bachelor of arts degree in political science. She later received a master’s degree in Development Management from The London School of Economics and Political Science. She spent her early career as a program officer at the Lawyers Committee for Human Rights before transitioning into a career in the executive search field. Sahi is a small business owner and has managed a successful executive search practice for the past 12 years.
