While I could say the last few weeks have been very busy, the truth of the matter is that the County stays busy around the year with ongoing projects and initiatives.
Earlier this month, I had the honor of joining Middletown
Mayor Tony Perry and the Middletown Committee, as well as, Congressman Chris
Smith at a press conference hosted by Middletown to launch their Economic
Relief Program to assist their small businesses impacted by COVID-19.
I hope everyone took advantage of the beautiful weather this weekend and visited our beaches and restaurants in Monmouth County!
With the holiday weekend approaching, I would like
to remind everyone to remain diligent in adhering to the social distancing and
safety guidelines implemented by the State.
Our restaurants and retailers – especially seasonal
– depend on strong summer weekends to keep their staff employed and businesses
open. It’s more important now than ever to support them while remaining safe.
