Record numbers turned out for the annual Tour de Elizabeth bike ride on May 19th. The day was a filled with riders and onlookers. The  weather for the day could not have turned out better!
Mayor Chris Bollwage greeted the sea of riders, thanked event organizers (Jonathan Phillips, a key player and his team) participants and onlookers for their unwavering support of the event and for the great City of Elizabeth.
The community was represented by the City of Elizabeth, the Elizabeth Fire Department, Groundwork Elizabeth, EDMO, Boxwood Hall, IKEA, Dr. Donald T. Alosio, Alligator Properties and Angel Rodriguez's State Farm Agency, to name but a few.
Coucilman Manny Grova and Carlos Torres  participated in the race, Freeholder Sergio Granados, Councilwoman Pat Perkins-Auguste and Assemblywoman Annette Quijano were also in attendance.
Manny Cabo, a former contestant on the "The Voice",  a very popular TV show, provided a fantastic rendition of the National Anthem. 
Our congratulations to all who made this a spectacular and enjoyable event!
We're all already looking forward to next year's Tour de Elizabeth!

New Port Authority Community Outreach Center Opens  in Elizabeth   
Elizabeth joins growing network of community centers supporting major Port Authority redevelopment projects at Newark Liberty, JFK, LaGuardia and the Port Authority Bus Terminal.
As part of its ongoing commitment to the local community in the development of the $2.7-billion Terminal One Redevelopment Program at Newark Liberty International Airport, the Port Authority, joined by local and state officials, opened an airport outreach office in Elizabeth.  
Designed as a central resource for local job and contracting opportunities for the Terminal One project, the Elizabeth office will serve local residents and businesses while also focusing on communication and building stronger community engagement. Outreach staff also will assist in the recruitment of certified Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprises (MWBE), provide certification workshops and host job fairs.  
The Elizabeth office is located on the ground floor of 79 West Jersey Street, with hours of operation from Monday-Thursday, 1-5 p.m. (open until 7 p.m. on Thursdays). Appointments are recommended. For information and to schedule an appointment, outreach staff may be reached at 201-395-7421.  
Terminal One is replacing the outmoded Terminal A. It will feature cutting-edge digital technology, superior dining and retail options in approximately one million square feet of space able to accommodate a projected 13.6 million passengers on three levels. The new terminal - which will have 33 common-use gates to handle larger aircraft and modernized check-in, security and baggage claim areas - is scheduled to be fully operational by 2022.
