Mayor Sarno states, “As a follow up to my previous meeting with the Pastor’s Council, CDO Tim Sheehan and I want to thank Representative Bud Williams for his continued partnership on the state level and on helping to organize this important meeting with our Pastors’ Council. Our churches and religious leaders play a vital and intricate role within our community. My administration has made it a priority to seek their input and the input from our neighborhood councils, residents and business community on what their needs and wants are to enhance the quality of life in our neighborhoods. Working together with all of our community stakeholders, my administration will leverage all available resources and funding opportunities to invest in our community with a focus on a good four-letter word – JOBS!”
