Essex Fells Swearing In 2018

State of the Borough Address 2018

AAA - 1/3/2018 11:17:27 AM

Good evening, Happy New Year, and welcome to the Borough of Essex Fells’ Re-Organizational meeting of 2018.
 
This is a remarkable night.  You all have just earlier witnessed an amazing event. An event that separates our free, democratic world from all others and an event that did not take place on the world’s stage, but rather right here in the beloved Borough of Essex Fells: the democratic transference of “the power of the people.”

Just now, Edward Davis, John King, and BJ D’Avella took an oath of office that said that they swear that they will “support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of New Jersey; and that they will “bear true faith an allegiance to the same” - and here’s the most important thing – “under the authority of the people.”

“Under the authority of the people” – that’s you good people.  That is the power that you have entrusted to them, and to every elected official.  We are granted this sacred authority, “by the people” and not by a party, or by friends, or by any other influences, but “by the people” who have chosen us, who have entrusted us to do what is best for “the people” of the Borough of Essex Fells.  We have all sworn to it, and it is something that we do not ever take lightly.  And if that solemn and weighty oath is not enough, we add the final kicker, credited to George Washington himself when he took his first oath of office as President, “So help me God.”

The transference of power is powerful stuff.  Thank you all for being here to witness it.

As I remind everyone who takes the oath of office, You have been given a wonderful gift; a gift of trust from your town to do the very best you can for the benefit of all of the residents of Essex Fells.  We sit here as trustees of a very precious stone and it is indeed an honor; and with that honor comes tremendous responsibility.  Remember that, remember to be faithful to that trust, and you will be successful in the tasks that wait.  Also know that serving with you as fellow Council members are extremely talented, dedicated and caring neighbors who, I am happy to say, love this blessed Borough as much as I, and who very much look forward to working with you, together, on those challenges.         

Mayor Edward Davis, Council President Patricia Wahl, and distinguished members of the Governing Body of Essex Fells, thank you so much for allowing me the privilege and honor of delivering my last State of the Borough Address for the beloved Borough of Essex Fells for the year 2017.
