Lakehurst Mayor's Update: 'Positive Things Happen' When Residents Get Involved

Mayor encourages residents to get involved with revitalizing community

Hello Lakehurst,

It has been a while since I have written a column. However, if I don’t have anything to say, you won’t see one. I’m not that vain that I need to see my ugly mug in the paper every week. It just reminds me how old I’m getting. 

By now almost everyone knows about or has been to the , held Sundays from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at . The Farmer's Market not only has great fresh produce, baked goods, honey and gourmet Italian foods. It also provides a friendly neighborhood atmosphere.  

The Farmer’s Market is the kind of positive things that can happen when the residents get involved with their governing body. I know I can’t come out and take each one of you by the hand and bring you to my meetings, but mark your calendar for the third Tuesday of every month at 6 p.m. The meetings are held at Lake Horicon, weather permitting or at the Community Center.  

These meetings formed the Lakehurst Revitalization Committee. The Committee not only started the Farmer’s Market but they are also developing plans for a concession stand and lavatories at Lake Horicon. The Committee and I are hoping that residents will get involved in the building of the concession complex.

This will be a great community project. I know we have residents that are masons, carpenters, plumbers and painters. Even if you are none of the above but would like to be part of this great project, please come to the next meeting. The next meeting will be on August 21 at 6 p.m. at Lake Horicon or the Community Center. We hope to see you there.

Just a reminder the Lakehurst Mayor and Council meet every first and third Thursday of month at the Community Center at 7:30 p.m. However, there will be only one meeting in August on the 16th. Friends and neighbors, if you have any questions or gripes, please come to a meeting and ask them or voice them. We do not know what problems you may be having if you do not express them.

We will never talk down to you or try to belittle you! You are the taxpaying resident and deserve to be heard. After all, that’s why you elected us.

The Lakehurst First Aid Squad will be holding its 2nd annual gift auction sometime in November. Any donations will be greatly appreciated. If you have any new items that you would like to donate, please call Lt. Misty Sinkewitz. Misty can be reached at 732-703-5639 or 732-849-5199. This is a fun time and a good cause.

I would like to thank the owners of the for inviting the council and me to participate in their Grand Opening. Yours truly got to cut the ribbon. Great atmosphere, food and spirits. Thanks again, we had a great time.

I would like to leave you with a quote by Henry Ford — “Don’t find fault, find a remedy.”  

God Bless America, God Bless Lakehurst and God Bless our Troops!

Harry Robbins
Mayor, Lakehurst

Terrible remarks to post. if you think that you can do a better job then go to meetings or run for office...why not try to be more constructive in your approach.

While I wouldn't exactly call those estute observations, it's kinda hard to be constructive with a man who has an established track record of throwing knuckleballs on a professional level. He seems to have a lot of the townsfolk snowed but I've never seen true colors run from a grown man... Keep your eyes open... a snake in the grass is easily spotted by a silver tongue.

Hey Mayor get rid of that flop house on the corner of Burnside and Broadway and maybe you'd have some credability. Till then....blah blah blah...the usual do nothing from an elected official.

Burnside and Broadway are in Pine Lake Park in Manchester, Harry Robbins, Mayor in Lakehurst can't take care of Manchester problems.
