The following message was posted by Mayor Jay Gillian as part of his Mayor's Letter for this week on ocnj.us:

Dear Friends:

There’s been a lot of good news for Ocean City this week.

I’d like to thank the voters who have once again done the right thing for our children by overwhelmingly approving the referendum for the repairs to the Primary School. 

Congratulations to the Board of Education and the School District Administration for developing such a well thought out project. The kids deserve nothing less than to be educated in a safe, clean and comfortable environment.

Important legislation to ease the negative impacts of the Biggert-Waters Act has now passed both the House of Representatives and the Senate, and awaits the President’s signature. 

Earlier this week I hosted Congressman LoBiondo, along with Mayors and other elected officials from many coastal communities, to discuss this important bill. 

Without the reforms that the new legislation provides our local economy would have been devastated.  I thank Congressman LoBiondo, along with Senators Menendez and Booker, for their hard work and support.

Warm regards,

Jay A. Gillian
Mayor
