Mayor: Shop Locally in Garwood, Support Downtown Merchants
Garwood's Mayor Patricia Quattrocchi is trying to give borough merchants a boost after Irene, and she's using the town's website to try and make that happen. In post on garwood.org she says local businesses on North and South Avenues were heavily impacted by the storm. She says "they went without power for 5 or more days and they would really benefit from the community's support."
Mayor Quattrocchi has made it a point to be very publicly supportive of residents, business owners and employees of the borough since the storm. Earlier this month she showered praise on her borough's staff after calling the town's response to the storm a "successful" effort.
