Mayors Needed for Legislative Committee

FROM THE PRESIDENT
By David DelVecchio, Mayor, Lambertville

As we begin the New Year, we mayors face increasingly complex issues in local government. Elected officials need up-to-date information for better planning and administration, that can help meet and solve problems. Your League provides key educational seminars geared specifically to local, elected officials.              

Two regional seminars will be held on Saturdays for newly and re-elected officials in January and February. The seminars will provide newly-elected officials with a thorough overview of their major areas of responsibility and key state level contacts, while re-elected officials will get up-to-date reference materials that provide answers to often asked questions.

The Annual Mayors Legislative Day is held in the middle of every January. This important policy session provides officials with a budgetary and legislative update from leaders of the state Legislature, the Governor and Cabinet.

Two key seminars on “Civil Unions: How Your Municipality will be Affected” will be held in February and March in cooperation with the Municipal Clerks, Finance Officers and Registrars Associations. Learn how local government will be affected.

Please take advantage of this year-round valuable service the League provides to help answer your questions and provide solutions to local issues. Sign up for the above-mentioned seminars, and help get your administration off to a running start.

THANK YOU CONFERENCE VOLUNTEERS
-Contact Bill Dressel, ext.122

Many conference delegates wonder how the League is able to conduct the country’s largest municipal conference with a full time staff of just 17. The answer is you! In the back of the conference program, you will see a listing of mayors who served on various committees. Although the list is extensive, it cannot possibly include all the mayors who work to make our conference successful every year. Mayors play an integral role by helping to produce sessions, moderating, working on committees and auditing important sessions. Your dedicated service enables nearly 22,000 attendees to come together for one week of invaluable learning and networking each year. Thank you for making the 91st Annual Conference a great success.

2007 SCHOLARSHIP COMPETITION
-Contact Michael Darcy ext.116

Recently, the League mailed information to all mayors concerning the Annual Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Competition.  Mayor Phyllis Marchand of Princeton Township chairs the Scholarship Competition. This popular competition is open to all high school juniors and seniors throughout the state. The top three winners each receive $1,000 scholarships from the League.

Mayors play an integral role in the success of this program because your office publicizes its availability, judges the local entries, and distributes the checks and certificates supplied by the League.  You should publicize the scholarship to your local schools and judging committee.  Your local winning entry must be submitted to the League office by April 3, so we can announce the three statewide winners by May 5.

NEW MAYORS RECEIVE LEAGUE PINS
-Contact Tom Fratticcioli Tfratticcioli@njslom.com

Newly elected mayors are mailed unique "Mayor" pins from the League.  The specially commissioned pins have a gold rim and blue logo with “ MAYOR” imprinted on a white background.  These pins identify you as a mayor and supporter of the New Jersey League of Municipalities.  Wear the "Mayor" pin with pride.
