When asked why she decided to move to Glen Rock, Mayoral Candidate and current Council President Kristine Morieko answers, “Well, I didn’t have to ‘choose’ Glen Rock, Glen Rock chose me.”

Kristine is referring to her family’s long history in Glen Rock: her great-grandparents moved to town almost one hundred years ago in 1920. Since then, Kristine’s grandparents and parents also lived in Glen Rock, and now Kristine is raising her family here in her childhood home. 

Kristine says, “Glen Rock is a virtual limb on my family tree, holding generations of my ancestors. I bought my childhood home when I got married with the intention of raising a family in the same town in which I had such a wonderful experience growing up.” Kristine and her husband Bryan talk with their nearly six-year-old twins about their future and where in Glen Rock they might live when they grow up and have families of their own.

Kristine loves her hometown, and all of the people that make Glen Rock the special place that it is, “This town has a robust group of people who give their time and effort to make it the best it can be. I admire and appreciate those who roll up their sleeves and get involved. Glen Rock is truly my home.”
