SOMERS POINT – Mayor Jack Glasser will be the first person to say he loves his home town and loves his job as mayor of the city where the shore starts. He is taking the job of mayor one step further and was recently installed as the president of the Atlantic County Mayors Association.  City Council honored Glasser for taking on additional responsibilities at its Feb. 27 meeting.

Noting that Glasser was elected to the post because he is considered a highly respected senior mayor with a wonderful record of attendance and a history of volunteering, council members thanked Glasser for his dedication and for presenting a positive image for all of Somers Point.

"I am really humbled by the opportunity to work with so many of our local mayors. This is a terrific group of like-minded individuals. We all share real concerns about our towns. This kind of forum gives the mayors a real opportunity to discuss things that are working in our different communities and to look for common solutions to some of the challenges we all share," Glasser said.

The mayor explained that Vince Mazzeo was to be installed as the president of the organization, but with his election to the New Jersey Assembly, he resigned his seat as mayor of Northfield.  Glasser was asked if he would consider the job as president.  He said after giving it some consideration he accepted the offer, deciding it was a great opportunity to let Atlantic County know what a great town Somers Point really is.

The Atlantic County Mayor's Association will meet in a different community each month giving members a chance to experience all of the municipalities. The group includes the mayors of all 23 municipalities in the county along with Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson, Atlantic County Freeholder Board Chairman Frank Formica, Sheriff Frank Balles and Atlantic County Administrator Jerry DelRosso.

The group emphasizes round table discussions that provide the mayors a chance to share ideas, concerns and accomplishments that have led to consolidation opportunities, grant applications and other programs, including the ongoing consolidated county dispatch which Glasser said can mean real savings for taxpayers.
