VERNON EARNS PRESTIGIOUS STATE RECOGNITION! - Mayor Burrell’s Comments at the 4.10.23 Council Meeting
On an annual basis, those New Jersey municipalities that have a Mayor’s Wellness Campaign, report to The New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute on the annual initiatives that they have undertaken in support of improving the health and wellness for the residents of their towns.
As of this date, Vernon and 429 other New Jersey municipalities have these Mayor’s Wellness Campaigns.
Vernon’s Mayor’s Wellness Campaign was started in 2016 under the leadership of former Mayor HARRY SHORTWAY, and was activated and implemented by our Municipal Director of Recreation & Community Affairs, Ms. MICHELLE DOWNTAIN.
When I became Mayor in 2020, I recognized that our town’s Mayor’s Wellness Campaign was an important initiative that contributed significantly to Vernon being a good place to live and raise a family; and therefore, I not only continued this Campaign, but I also gave it my full encouragement and support.
Each year, the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute awards three levels of Mayor’s Wellness Campaign achievements - -
I thank Ms. DOWNTAIN for the key role and critical that she played in leading our Mayors Wellness Committee team in the planning, organizing, directing, and coordinating functions that were required in researching and gathering the information and data required for our town’s application to be considered for this prestigious award.
PROUD OF OUR TOWN and VERNON STRONG!
Howard L. Burrell. Mayor
