SOMERSET, NJ - The Mayor Phillip Kramer, Freeholder Brian J. Levine, township council members, religious leaders, and members of the community gathered for a street sign dedication on the corner of New Brunswick Road and Cedar Grove Lane in Franklin Township.
"The dedication is to honor diversity and recognize the contribution of over 60 houses of worship to the well-being of our community in our township," President of Franklin Township Interfaith Council Dr. Alex Kharazi said in a statement.
Township Manager Bob Vornlocker lead the dedication and stated there will be 14 signs like the one erected on Thursday up and down Cedar Grove Lane.
"It is an honor for me to be involved in this just as a government official instead of an elected official, or a house of worship representative," Vornlocker said. "I represent the government and the government often times is looked at as somewhat impersonal, I will let you know we are not impersonal all these things matter. I have worked here for 32 years, and in those 32 years I have seen this town change dramatically, all for the good in my eyes, and I have heard everyone talk about it today about how all of the different cultures and religions are now represented in this town, and I think it is truly a wonderful thing, and I am glad to be part of it."
