Re: Sercan Zoklu, Borough Clerk
Today's thank you is long over do, and it goes to our Borough Clerk Sercan Zoklu for his assistance last year in regards to Pedestrian Safety which is in the news again, this time from our neighbors to the North in Fort Lee. It's nice to see motorist stopping for pedestrians all over Cliffside Park, especially where the cones and signs stating the State's new law, regarding motorists stopping while Pedestrians are in the very visible widely painted crosswalks through out the Borough.
Next issue which I've been working with Sercan as the Back Bay NAG, Community Activist is the replacement of the Welcome to the Borough of Cliffside Park, Located on top of the Palisades. In tribute to you Mr. Mayor I feel all signs should add, Home of New Jersey's longest Elected Mayor of the State of New Jersey.
The picture above is just one of the Welcoming Signs located in the South Side of Cliffside Park, since the the one at the true border of North Bergen our neighbor to the South was knocked down, Sercan has been working to have it replaced.
Thanks to Sercan, to our Mayor and Councilmen and Councilwomen for their continued work for all residents of both Cliffside Park North and South, often referred to as the South side.
