HAWTHORNE, NJ - Mayor Goldberg released his first letter of the week to the borough.  It is found below:

Dear Resident,

The numbers as of this morning are 481 total positives, with 20 fatalities and only 3 active cases. While our numbers are cause for celebration, we must remain vigilant.

Our newsletter delivers the local news that you can trust.

Friday night we remembered the events of 9-11-01. It was truly a moving experience, and I want to thank all who made this a special night. Captain Arturi of the Passaic County Sheriff’s Department recalled his experiences working the pile at Ground Zero. The prayers offered were soulful and thoughtful. The music was amazing, and the playing of taps sent chills through the assembly. The candle lighting ceremony was extremely poignant.

The addition of indoor dining, gym openings, as well as the Hawthorne Theater reopening has not caused a spike in our numbers, but we are monitoring it.

I have been assured that Hawthorne will be getting a ballot box at the Municipal Building. You will be able to cast your vote without worrying about it getting lost in the mail.

I had the opportunity to be interviewed by Flavio Romeo on the Hawthorne town podcast. It was an enjoyable experience and worth searching the web for.

Keep using masks and practice social distancing. It has crushed the curve. Please don’t become complacent.

For those that aren’t aware, the Borough has a non-perishable food pantry. If you need food and can’t afford or can’t get to a supermarket, please call the Board of Health at 973-427-4011. Many thanks to those people who have donated food to the Borough’s food pantry.

We are here at the Municipal Building; if you have any questions, please call me directly at 973-427-1168 or the main office at 973-427-5555.

Mayor Goldberg
