EAST ORANGE, NJ - The East Orange City Council met yesterday for their annual Reorganization Meeting to set the city business in order for what promises to be an eventful year. 

Councilman Ted Green was elected to continue as Chairperson of the Council, and most Council Committees members stayed in place as well.  City Council named appointees to various committees and boards, selected the official publication and passed the usual legislation; afterward, Mayor Taylor was invited to address the community and share his vision for the upcoming year.

However, not missed on the attendees is the fact 2017 marks the mayor’s fourth year in office and end of his first term.  All indications are he will seek another term. The East Orange Mayor runs concurrently with the New Jersey Governor candidate, so all eyes will be focused on the outcome of both these very important elections.

Most notable in attendance at the meeting was Phil Murphy, the leading Democratic Party candidate in the 2017 New Jersey Governor’s race. Other persons of interest include: Leroy Jones, the Democratic Chairman of both East Orange and Essex County; Assemblyman Thomas P. Giblin; former Essex County Freeholder & former EO Councilperson, Carol Clark; City Department Heads, police, fire and a host of good people from the City of East Orange.
