Village President Alex Torpey announced today that the 2015 State of the Village Address will take place Tuesday January 27th 2015 in the Loft on the Third Floor of the South Orange Performing Arts Center. The State of the Village is required - in writing - to be provided to the Board each year, however, President Torpey believes holding a physical ceremony with a report to the Board and to the public instills a sense of tradition and helps bring the community together around our progress and our challenges. President Torpey's updates will include a recap of the past year and upcoming work to reduce municipal spending and property taxes, reduce crime, increase economic development and ratables in the Village, encourage sustainable practices, and continue to break ground in transparency, technology and citizen engagement. Join us as we celebrate the achievements of hard working public servants and lay out a vision for not just the future of the Village, but the future of innovation in local governance. RSVP to Cathy Cameron at firstname.lastname@example.org or 973 378 7715 extension 2. The address will also be viewable online live and on SOMAtv.
