I’d like to take this time to speak to you all about the recent current events. This might be hard on some ears and eyes but I need to express to all of you the seriousness of the situation. And as hard as this is to think about, we have to realize this is the reality and we all have to accept the fact that terroristic threats and attacks are happening HERE, not on YouTube, not is some other county but HERE. This is not the time to insulate yourself, your family members or your children from the fact that there are people in this world that have a belief system that want to eradicate our way of life. If you see something, say something, be wary, be vigilant educate yourself and your loved ones one what to do in the event of another attack and how to prevent one. I ask you not to be afraid, this is not the time, have hope and faith, be cautious but our way of life must continue. I love this Country, my Town and my Kenilworthians, as a Mayor, First Responder, Husband, Father and Friend and I know you will all join me in doing whatever we can to protect it.

God Bless you all and

God Bless America
