Happy Labor Day from Hamilton Mayor Kelly Yaede
As we mark the unofficial ‘end of
summer’ and our children ready to begin a new school year, Labor Day remains an
important time for us to recognize and acknowledge the hard work and dedication
of the men and women that built our great nation and who continue to contribute
to our vibrant economy.
The sacrifices, grit and
determination of the American worker has led to our nation’s growth in
prosperity, paved the highways and built the bridges that connect us, erected
the buildings, factories and skyscrapers that fuel our country’s economic
engine and create the products and services that continue to improve our daily
lives and to support our loved ones.
Many of us are fortunate that we
will enjoy this holiday with family, friends and neighbors, but we should also
take a moment to appreciate our fellow citizens who will work on this Labor Day,
whether in retails stores or in our health care facilities, as police officers,
firefighters and first responders or as members of our United States Armed
Forces. Because it is all of us –
together – whose labor continues to makes ours’ the greatest country in the world.
Kelly A. Yaede
Mayor of Hamilton Township
