Mayor's Message - 6-5-2020 - George Floyd

Like all of you, I was deeply disturbed by the murder of George Floyd. This incident shook me to my core.

I spent this week in meetings with our Chief of Police and we reviewed the Secaucus Police Department’s Use of Force Policy. I am happy to report the Secaucus Police Department’s Use of Force Policy exceeds and is more restrictive than the minimum requirements set forth by the New Jersey Attorney General.

As many of you know, I am constantly driving around town visiting our residents and business community and from what I see Secaucus is a community that cares for each other regardless of one’s race, religion or sexual orientation. Each day I see neighbors helping neighbors, happy children playing together while loving parents, grandparents, and caretakers look on and a caring business community lending support to those in need. I see a police department, that is well trained, respectful, caring and responsive to the needs of the community. To sum it up, I see love. I think if the people in our Country would respect and love one another, as the people in this town do, times would be much calmer.

I am acutely aware of the pain many are experiencing. In extraordinary times like these you all give me hope that the Nation will pull together and that we can all see each other for what we are, without judgement.

I am proud to be your Mayor.
