KENILWORTH, NJ – Please see January's message from Mayor Linda Karlovitch.

The New Year is well underway and off to a good start for Kenilworth. So far we have been fortunate to enjoy mild weather. I am sure most of you would agree that I hope this trend continues. However, with the arrival of winter we are also anticipating the arrival of snow in the near future. Our Borough DPW work hard to ensure our roads are safe. We appreciate the hard work and dedication they provide to us every day.

Good news, softball registration will be opening soon. Spring is right around the corner. I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday season. Many thanks to everyone involved in creating a festive community. Our Recreation Department, Beautfication Group, and the many volunteers who always show up doing what they do for the betterment of Kenilworth. From holiday plantings, Borough Hall tree lighting, breakfast with Santa, and our annual house decorating contest to name a few. These family events have quickly become traditions in our Borough. I hope you were able to make it to some of these festivities. We are so blessed to live in this wonderful community.

I would like to add a part of my address on Inauguration Day. I am humbled and honored to have been given this amazing opportunity to represent our community. I wish to thank the Borough of Kenilworth for the privilege to serve as your mayor. I thank you for the confidence you have shown in me and accept the responsibilities your trust has entitled me. I could not do this job without the involvement and openness of the people I represent. I hope everyone will join me in thanking Mayor DeLuca for all he has done to make Kenilworth stronger. Our borough is better because he was here and I wish him well.

We must remain true to our past while staying open to new opportunities for our future. Don’t forget to shop local, this is the time of year when businesses can slow down. Please support our local merchants if you can.

I wish you success as you proceed into the New Year. May you be safe and warm.

Mayor Linda Karlovitch
