EAST ORANGE, NJ - Tuesday evening the 800 seat auditorium of the Cicely Tyson School of Performing and Fine Arts was filled to capacity with residents, religious leaders, elected officials, business owners and friends eagerly waiting to hear Mayor Lester Taylor deliver his 2017 State of the City Address. 

The anticipation was heightened by the many supporters and friends of the administration that participated in making the night activities run smoothly.  Attendees were greeted by the Senior Citizen Workforce, adorned in matching blue jackets with the city logo embroidered on them. The crowd was entertained by the Cicely Tyson High School Symphonic Band, directed by Dr. Oscar Petty, Beverly Slade-Perry and Friends and East Orange Stem Academy students Kayla Cruz and Tia Wallace singing the national Anthem under the direction of Linell Andrews. 

Clearly, the focus of the event would ultimately be the words of the Mayor.  According to the dozens of people we spoke to, the consensus was the Mayor delivered perhaps his very best speech to date. Comments ranged from ‘excellent to exquisite’…’his message was clear and concise’. 

Representatives from the City’s Public Information Office advised that a full video of the event would soon be available at the City’s website. TAPinto East Orange/Orange will post the video as soon as it is available.
