Highland Park Launches Municipal ID Program After Months of Planning

On October 31, 2017 at the Highland Park Borough Hall, residents found no tricks, but all treats in the form of Municipal ID cards, as the borough officially launched its Municipal ID program. This initiative is part of the borough’s inclusive community efforts and has been in development for the past several months. “I’m thrilled to finally see our Municipal ID Card become a reality. Many of our seniors have already thanked me for making an ID other than a driver’s license (which can be difficult for them to attain) available to them. These new ID cards will allow all our residents, with adequate proof of residence, over the age of 14, to participate in borough programs,” said Mayor Gayle Brill Mittler. READ MORE

Middlesex Mayors Launch Non-Partisan Voter Registration Initiative

Five Middlesex county mayors, including Highland Park’s Mayor Gayle Brill Mittler, are volunteering their time outside of their regular mayoral responsibilities to encourage residents to register to vote. On Monday, October 1, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., the mayors will be entering the no politics zone – no one will be campaigning for anyone. They will be doing what they can do to promote not a specific candidate but rather a specific principle of participatory democracy – voting. In Highland Park, Mayor Gayle Brill Mittler will be leading this voter registration initiative at the Senior/Youth Center, 220 South 6th Avenue, Highland Park. Mayor Brill Mittler helped to coordinate this effort to hold a county-wide non-partisan voter registration drive that includes not only Mayor Brill Mittler, but also Mayor John Krenzel of South River, Mayor Brad Cohen of East Brunswick, Mayor Brian Wahler of Piscataway, and Mayor Peter Cammarano of Metuchen.
