As this year comes to an end, I reflect on the progress we have made and I’m so proud to be your Mayor. This community is growing in positive ways and there is much to be shared! I couldn’t possibly mention all who contribute to Holmdel’s success but to mention a few...

Our township Vonage “hangouts” for the kids have been a safe and fun way for the younger folks to get together. Our recreation department offers more activities and events than I can mention as well as the enjoyable summer many families experienced at our Holmdel Swim Club.

Our DPW continues their hard work to finish the largest infrastructure program in our town’s history. They were also busy building dugouts at the lower field at Phillips Park.

Our Police, Fire and First Aid are the best there is and we are all grateful to them for keeping us safe; taking care of all of our residents 24/7.

All who work hard daily in our township offices to keep Holmdel moving forward are appreciated. They do all the “behind the scenes” work that is an incredible part of our success.

Our schools are thriving and continue to be ranked among the best.

The volunteers in our community are the passionate ones who do because they love where we live, they want to help make it better...and they have.

Our website and Civic Ready communication system is a big improvement and I urge all who have not registered to do so today as this is a very helpful resource.

Our Township Committee continues to be dedicated to you and we work hard daily responding to your communication, listening and collaborating to keep this town moving forward and I thank all of them for their dedication. Not everything moves as quickly as we’d like, but progress is happening. For example, see BellWorks update; the improvements to this historical building respecting it’s history are impressive.

I wish you all safe and HAPPY HOLIDAYS
