MILLBURN, NJ - The school holiday on Monday was designated in memory of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1983, to honor the life and achievements of this influential American civil rights leader.
 
I would like to use this day to acknowledge Millburn’s own community leaders who work for its residents to do the best for this town. Congratulations to the newly elected members of the Town Council, Dianne Eglow and Samuel Levy. I also congratulate Cheryl Burstein and Jodi Rosenberg who were named Mayor and Deputy Mayor earlier this month. 
 
I appreciate the spirit of cooperation and collaboration we have with the community’s leaders. We are partners in many areas – for example, the Police Department whose DARE program teaches our students to lead healthy and safe lives. They help keep our schools safe by participating in the fire and security drills and coordinating with the school district on our safety plans.

The Fire Chief and members of the fire department present programs on fire safety for our students, and the Office of Emergency Management has worked in conjunction with the school district in times of emergency such as Hurricane Sandy.
 
I couldn’t make decisions on snow days without the input of John Bace of the Department of Public Works who takes my 4 a.m. calls to update me on the status of the roads.
 
I am so grateful to be part of a community that works in a spirit of cooperation and collaboration. It is not always the case – please know we are extremely fortunate. 
 
On this day of service, I encourage you to find ways to serve others and be grateful for those who serve us.
