BLOOMFIELD, NJ - Residents of Bloomfield will be able to meet with Mayor Venezia and Councilman Joanow Tuesday February 20 in the second of a series of ward conversations. The event will take place at the IHOP at 7 p.m.

“On February 20th, I invite all residents in the 2nd Ward to come speak with the Mayor and myself about the issues that matter to them and their families,” said Councilman Joanow. “I think meeting at a familiar, leisurely setting brings a neighborly atmosphere to these meetings, and I am confident that will lead to productive conversations about the priorities of 2nd Ward residents, who I take great pride in representing on the Township Council.”

“Too often, residents are not afforded the opportunity to speak directly with their elected representatives outside of Council meetings. Ward Council members Mundell, Joanow and Cruz and I are determined to be the voice of our constituents, and this meeting series is an opportunity for us to better understand the issues that our neighbors care about,” said Mayor Venezia. “The Township of Bloomfield has made great strides to promote transparency, including building an online portal to make public documents easily accessible, which received the League of Municipalities and Department of Community Affairs’ 2017 Annual Innovation in Governance Awards. These community conversations are another way for us to better serve the community.”
