Basking Ridge Mayor Malay and Other Mayors from Somerset County Participate in Meet the Mayors Series IV at Old Mill Inn


BASKING RIDGE, NJ - The Old Mill Inn was the site Wednesday night for the fourth session of Meet the Mayors, a series of business development discussions to enhance the community. Session IV featured Mayor John Malay of Bernards Township, Mayor William C. Mueller of Peapack/Gladstone, Mayor Kevin R. Sooy of Bernardsville and Mayor Steven Parker of Bedminster
“The Meet the Mayors Series is a community program to help local businesses build stronger connections with each other and to expand their circle of influence," read the event program by Michael Kerwin, president of Somerset County Business Partnership, the main host of the event. Basking Ridge Business Alliance and Bedminster Business Association co-hosted the event and the Board of Chosen Freeholders also collaborated.
The mayors presented ongoing initiatives and planned innovations at the municipal level intended to provide a competitive advantage for local businesses. The individual presentations included each Mayor’s vision for the future and the actions planned to take to improve the fortunes of their community while creating a growing and sustainable business climate.
Mayor John Malay highlighted “Basking Ridge as a very safe community to live in and do business in. Some things we have done to briefly benefit local business, we have maintained the ambiance in our historic heritage making the town an attractive place to do business in through long term master planning. We are fiscally responsible with our tax dollars for businesses and residents; we are debt free.   As a township municipal government, we are committed to taking care of business, we would thing that this allows local business owners to care of theirs.”
After Questions and Answers stemming from Shared services and business continuity planning, the networking continued for the over 200 in attendance.
