Happy Easter

I would like to wish you a wonderful and happy Easter - one that I hope will be spent with friends and family. Perhaps we can also take a moment out of our day to think of those who are working today proudly serving our nation in uniform. Happy Easter!

Fishing Partnership Offers Life Saving Training

Professionals in the fishing industry ply their trade in one of the riskiest professions of all.  While free of charge, the service trainings provided by the Partnership are in fact invaluable.  Time and again this type of training has proven to save lives.

National Night Out

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Gloucester area residents came out for our 7th annual Take Back The Night event at Gloucester City Hall with Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken, and other community leaders.

I am proud to be a part of the effort that is growing awareness of harassment and assault. Many people brought signs, cheered and displayed good will all in an effort to help our police, clergy, schools, and resource organizations to support people and prevent harm to others.
