March 2014 NJLM President's Message
Suzanne M. Walters, President,
Mayor Stone Harbor Borough
The first quarter of 2014 has been quite eventful. We have seen historic snow storms, the implementation of the Affordable Health Care Act, multi-million dollar cuts in government budgets; calls for forced municipal consolidation; and more.
With all that is happening, I urge you to continue to lead your communities through these challenges to a better future. I urge you to find creative ways to respond to the needs of your citizens, especially those most at risk.
One of the ways to help your municipalities is to attend our 22nd Mayors Legislative Day that has been rescheduled from its February date ot March 12 at the Statehouse Annex. This event will feature speakers from the Governors Cabinet as well as a Legislative panel with members of the Legislature. To find out more about this event visit the link:
Please join us for this important event and take the opportunity to network with your peers and discover new solutions to the problems your Municipality faces.
