Mayor's Message - Winter 2016-2017

There is so much to do here in Fort Lee and its government's job to communicate with each and every one of our residents so that everyone has an opportunity to participate in our many activities, programs, and events. From our 5K Diabetes Run and Health Fair to our incredible Holiday Tree Lighting and Main Street Art Festival, Fort Lee has become the "place to be" in northern New Jersey. As Mayor it is very frustrating to hear one of our residents say "I wish I knew about that, I would have attended" or "when was that event, I am sorry I missed it".  In an effort to "get the word out" and make sure all of our residents are aware of what's going on here in Fort Lee, there are a few new and exciting initiatives that we have put into place to make sure no one is ever left out and which are available at no cost to all of our residents.
