The Hemberger famiily has returned to Absecon/submitted The Hemberger famiily has returned to Absecon/submitted Recently, I was reminded of two important public safety services available to Absecon residents. The first is a service called “Lifeliner.

We have many senior citizens in Absecon who live alone and could benefit from someone checking in on them on a regular basis. Under “Lifeliner,” a resident can arrange to call police dispatch daily at a pre-arranged time to confirm that the resident is well and does not require assistance. If the resident does not call at that time, then a police dispatcher will call the resident. If the resident does not respond, then the Absecon Police will send out an officer to the home to confirm that the resident does not require assistance.

Absecon Mayor John Armstrong Absecon Mayor John Armstrong In reflecting upon the past year and looking ahead to 2014, I am reminded of the famous opening lines of Charles Dickens’ “A Tale of Two Cities.” “It was the best of times. It was the worst of times”. Much has happened in Absecon over the last year, and a good deal of it is positive. We have successfully transitioned from a full-time to part-time city administrator, with substantial savings for our taxpayers. As of today, we welcome back Tom Henshaw as a prime-time city administrator. Tom has already demonstrated an interest and enthusiasm which bodes well for the future. Tom knows Absecon, and he is committed to a management approach which will emphasize accountability and good service.
