Mayor Paul Medany’s Monthly Message - June 2020


Our monthly messages continue in this most unique period. We hope you are healthy and safe while living under the current restrictions.  This month we want to assure you that municipal operations have never stopped and we are now preparing to enter into the full opening stage.

We are actively lobbying to get all business open and operating with restrictions and following CDC guidelines. We need people back to work, business owners operating and restoring our economy.  There has been enough information circulated to know how to keep yourself and others safe and healthy and we urge you to continue this course.

Our messaging has now taken a turn towards assessing what we have been thru and thanking everyone for their cooperation and dedication to dealing with this crisis. Every single resident has been affected by this, some more so than others. We have consistently mentioned all the groups and organizations that have been managing thru this.

Now we want to thank you our residents. The Deptford community has shown their true grit and willingness to keep our community as a whole safe while protecting yourself and families. It has been a truly outstanding effort while so many have endured hardships, business closing, working while exposing themselves to the virus, and taking care of children and so much more.

Now our message is THANK YOU!  We are not in the clear yet but we will be soon and that is because of your efforts. Township council is proud of your efforts and you’re staying together as a community. We have transformed Deptford in the last decade to one of the most outstanding communities in the region and you just proved it.

Congratulations to all Graduates of the Class of 2020. Your years of hard work and your teacher’s efforts are still the story of your success, nothing can change that part of your story. We wish you all the success on your future path.

Thank you to all of our school administration, staff and teachers for continuing our student’s education for our children during this challenging time. Thank you to all of our parents for keeping our students connected and focused on continuing their education.

A last word our Deptford Library will be holding virtual programs this summer look them up.

Summer is here this month! Let’s enjoy the great weather.

Continue to stay safe, to work together and to help each other. We stand proudly together!
