EAST ORANGE, NJ - Undoubtedly, one of the major events of the year in East Orange is the Mayor’s Annual State of the City Address. This year is certainly no exception.

Mayor Green and his “Green Team” put together a presentation thought by many to be second to none. The event, held at Cicely Tyson School of Performing Arts n East Orange was well attended with standing room only availability. Stakeholders from every walk of life (politicians, religious leaders, business owners, nonprofits, etc.) were in attendance. 

Mayor Green spoke of the many accomplishments his administration has been able to achieve in his first year in office, as well as the prospects for the future.

To the residents we spoke to, the reduction in crime and quality of life issues resonated most. The Mayor has made a point to be visible, accessible and transparent as he and his administration make frequent walking tours throughout the community speaking directly to residents to discuss issues of importance to them.
