VOLUNTEERS FOR EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT NEEDED: PLEASE CONTACT EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT OFFICER - ROBERT SCHIELKE - (973) 615 9072 or OEM@kenilworthnj.org
I would like to take this time to encourage everyone to
patronize our Kenilworth businesses. Thanksgiving will be here soon and
Christmas a few weeks later. These
holidays could be a great opportunity to use local businesses for service needs
and desired items. Every town's small
business is its lifeblood. This is true in Kenilworth. Our town's businesses provide the personal
service that is missing in the large corporate stores. Please make Kenilworth's stores a stop on
your shopping itinerary.
This letter will be my last letter as your Mayor. The election on November 4 will put in place
a new mayor once the election is certified. It has been an honor to be Mayor of our charming town. During my tenure I have strived to do what is
right for Kenilworth's citizens. There
have been accomplishments and frustrations. I have seen many of our fellow residents endeavor to do what is best for
our community. Unfortunately this has not been universal with all the people I
have interacted with. I urge the new Mayor to remain steadfast in their Mayoral
duties and resistant to the pressures that come with the position. Have a great
Holiday season and may God Bless you all.
