RANDOLPH, NJ- Mayor Forstenhausler had a very busy month of April. Below is a summation of where the current Mayor of Randolph has been spending his time:

4/18/2018 – I attended a Morris County League of Municipalities Meeting at the Morris County Correctional Facility hosted by Sheriff James Gannon. We discussed the opioid epidemic, Hope One, and toured the Hope Wing where addicted inmates receive help with their addition in an attempt to keep them out of jail in the future. Council Members Christine Carey and Joanne Veech attended with me. It was a very informative tour, and we learned a lot about the Sheriff’s attempts to combat addition.

4/19/2018 – At the Randolph Chamber of Commerce Luncheon on Thursday, April 19th,  Lori Lee and Sam DeLorenzo from The Wellness Center of NWJ gave a presentation about diet, healthy nutrition and exercise. The meeting was one of the best attended so far this year.

4/20/2018 – State Senator Anthony Bucco hosted his Annual Beefsteak fundraiser at St. Andrews Greek Church in Randolph. In attendance were Congressman Leonard Lance, Former Lt. Governor Kim Guardagno, State Senator Tom Kean Jr, Assemblyman Anthony Bucco, Assemblyman Jay Webber, Freeholder Director Doug Cabana, many other Freeholders and Freeholder Candidates, and many state and county officials.

4/21/2018 – I threw out the first pitch to start the Randolph Little League Season at Freedom Park. The event was very well attended and was moved from Heistein Park to freedom Park this year. All of the athletes processed from the all-purpose field to the Babe Ruth Field.

4/22/2018 – Randolph Chemical Engine Company #4 in Ironia held their Annual Spring Pancake Breakfast. The food was excellent as usual. 

4/23/2018 – I joined approx. 30 Morris County Mayors for a meeting with Governor Murphy at the Parsippany Community Center. The Governor was here in Morris County to hear directly from the Mayors about policy issues facing Morris County. We discussed needed improvements to the intersections on Route 10 in Randolph as well as taxes, school safety, JCP&L, our power grid, tree trimming and removal, infrastructure, 2% cap, mental health, school funding, opioid epidemic, property tax deductions for NJ Residents, Marijuana laws, DEP oversight, Chapter 78 health insurance and the need to keep business in NJ as well as ways to attract new business. The Governor talked about free community college, and a plan for universal pre-k schooling.

4/24/2018 – I attended a meeting called “Hidden In Plain Sight” which was sponsored by the Randolph MAC (Randolph Municipal Alliance Committee) at the Randolph Community Center. It was conducted by Morris County Prevention is Key and helped inform parents of teens. They explained various drug related words, phrases, and clothing. They also display a mock-up of a teen’s room, and the many ways drugs and alcohol might be hidden.
