Post-Announcement Update

Posted on March 04, 2011 at 7:15 PM

Hey everyone!

Just want to report back on how successful announcement day was. It was incredible meeting so many residents, business owners and students who care so much about this community. It's exciting to think about how many more people I will have the opportunity to meet over the coming months. And I have to thank all of the supporters and volunteers that put in their time to help make our announcement such a wonderful success!

There were so many issues on people's minds about the future of South Orange, and I'm pleased to announce that we will not only be covering issues in a comprehensive fashion over the next few months, but we will be soon launching an online suggestion box/discussion forum that will help our community be able to actively participate and get their voice heard online.

On a slightly different note, we have set up our online donation platform, and would greatly appreciate the financial support needed to get the word out to South Orange that they have the opportunity in May to usher in a new era of community leadership. You can find the donation page at

Many people have been asking about the press coverage we received, so I'd like to list and link to the online press we received from our announcement.

More to come soon! I'm writing this from Starbucks downtown, great to see so many residents and SOPD Officers out tonight. Come downtown and brave the cold to hang out!
