Mayor in Favor of Cicala for Town Council Seat


Dear editor:

I am writing in support of Councilman Joe Cicala for Cedar Grove Town Council.  As many residents are aware, on July 18th the Town Council appointed Joe to fill a vacancy on the Town Council.  When the vacancy arose, Joe was the only person that I contacted to inquire whether he had any interest in serving on the Town Council. Fortunately, for the Town Council and Cedar Grove he did.  Having worked closely with Joe during his tenure on the Cedar Grove Board of Education while I served  as the Town Council’s liaison to the Board, I had the benefit of witnessing first-hand Joe’s integrity, judgment and dedication to our community. I felt very strongly that Joe’s leadership qualities and experience as a public servant would be a tremendous asset to the Town Council. Since Joe’s appointment in July, he has exceeded all of our expectations.

Joe is the only candidate running for Town Council who offers experience, proven leadership and a history of volunteerism in our community. Joe was previously elected to two terms on the Board wherein he served as the President for the past three years. During Joe’s tenure on the Board, he worked tirelessly with his colleagues and the Administration to implement and administer a multi-million dollar annual budget. As a result, Joe obtained invaluable experience managing tax payer dollars and a clear understanding of the importance of fiscal responsibility. As an experienced public servant, Joe understands that each issue that is presented to the Town Council must be balanced against its fiscal impact.

As an accomplished attorney who operates his own practice, devoted husband and father of three wonderful children, Joe has committed himself to maintaining the quality of life that we all enjoy in Cedar Grove. Joe has clearly demonstrated that he has the ability, desire and leadership skills to be the person we need to serve on the Town Council. I feel very fortunate that Joe is willing to continue to volunteer his time to serve our community.

Please joint me on Tuesday, November 8 th by voting to elect Joe Cicala to the Cedar Grove Town Council so that he can continue to work for all of us to make Cedar Grove a great place to live and raise our families.
