“The Annual West Orange Mayor’s Breakfast is a signature event for the West Orange community attracting hundreds of people each year,” said Sally Malech, president of the WOCC. “The chamber of commerce is proud to collaborate with the mayor’s office in presenting this event to the residents of our town.”

This popular annual gathering allows attendees to connect with new contacts and strengthen existing relationships.

Bill Johnson of Regal Bank said the event is a unique opportunity for the mayor to directly connect with local businesses and members of the community, and that Regal Bank is proud to support such events. John Gallucci Jr., chief executive officer of JAG-ONE Physical Therapy, added that “community leaders are the bedrock of what makes great communities like West Orange, and Mayor Parisi's commitment to community and people is exactly the philosophy of JAG-ONE Physical Therapy.”
