“It’s all about doing what is best for our residents,” said Mayor Mahr. “Because we are a community that shares a school district, and a long history of being able to work together, I’m eager to continue the discussion.”

“I couldn’t be happier to be working with Colleen Mahr, who I consider to be one of the brightest mayors in New Jersey,” said Mayor Elect Glover.  “I’m looking forward to getting back on track again with merging our police departments.   I think there are a lot of opportunities that we can investigate together and the taxpayers will be the beneficiaries of our work.”

“I see Mayor Mahr as a positive partner for Scotch Plains, she is very talented and I think our communities are going to be better for these ideas,” concluded Mayor Elect Glover.
