Happy Holidays from Scotch Plains Mayor Kevin Glover


Dear Editor:

With the beginning of a new year almost upon us, I am sure many of you have the same thought I have at this time of year, "Where did the year go?"  It is this thought that should remind us that we should enjoy each waking day. I am hopeful that each of you can reflect upon this past year with much happiness, gratitude and joy.

As we gather with family and friends, to celebrate Christmas and Hanukah let us remember those very special individuals, members of the armed services and our first responders that will be away from their families, working as they always do to keep our families safe. Let us share with them a heartfelt message for the sacrifices they’ve made and continue to make this holiday season and everyday on our behalf, along with a solemn wish that they will return safely to their loved ones.

As I write this final holiday wish to you as your Mayor, I want to thank you for the kindness you have shown me and my family throughout my term in office, and share with you our warmest greetings and best wishes for a Happy Hanukkah, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  

In this season of hope, let us come together as one people, united, with a special wish and prayer, “ Lord let there be peace on earth and good will toward men, and let it begin with me.”

May God bless you, always, and may God continue to bless the United States of America.

Mayor Kevin Glover
The Township of Scotch Plains
