Yaede Seeks Open Dialogue With Business Leaders in Networking with Mayor Event
As a leader with private sector business experience, Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly A. Yaede understands that an open dialogue with local business leaders is an important ingredient for a prosperous local economy.
Through the upcoming Networking with Mayor Yaede event – the first of a quarterly series presented by the Hamilton Township Economic Development Advisory Commission (HTEDAC) – Yaede will begin a proactive approach with business leaders to identify ways that Hamilton Township can continue expanding local economic opportunities that benefit the community’s businesses and residents.
The kick-off event will take place on Tuesday, March 5th at Villa Romanza Ristorante (located at 429 Route 156, Hamilton, NJ 08620), from 6 to 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 per individual and can be made payable to “HTEDAC” at P.O. Box 2926, Hamilton, NJ 08690.
Business leaders can register for the kick-off event online at www.HTEDAC.eventbrite.com or by calling commission members John Strycharz at (609) 638-7580 or Harold Laudien at (732) 715-5757.
Sponsorship opportunities for the event are also available through the event website. Proceeds from the event support the continuation of the Economic Development Advisory Commission’s annual events without the use of taxpayer dollars.
In her State of the Township Address earlier this year, Mayor Yaede outlined areas in which she hopes to have an open dialogue with local business leaders, including how Hamilton can further streamline procedures for incoming and expanding businesses, improve its land use codes and revitalize vacant store fronts. As one of her first acts as Mayor, Yaede also eliminated a duplicative local bond requirement on certain businesses already required to post bonds with the State government – as another way to help ease the financial burdens on local businesses.
“I understand that one of the best ways to assist our local business leaders is to simply listen to their ideas and suggestions, and then see how our local government can create an economic environment that supports their investments in our community,” explains Mayor Yaede. “An open dialogue with our local business leaders and entrepreneurs is the right recipe to ensure that Hamilton Township continues to enjoy job opportunities for our residents, commerce to support our existing businesses and growth opportunities to benefit the future of our community.”
Through the remainder of the year, the Networking with Mayor Yaede events will be held in different locations across Hamilton to make it even more convenient for business leaders to attend.
