"I will tell you they picked someone really outstanding this year,"
commented Mayor Joseph Tempesta, Jr.
"Netanya has done so many wonderful things, in so many different areas of our community.
Friendship Circle for special needs children, Sunrise Assisted Living where she worked with Alzheimer's patients - very commendable, a soup kitchen to help feed the homeless,
she participates in Relay for Life - she's done things with the Interfaith Hospitality Network.
She's really a great choice - best in our history."
"I also want to compliment my brother in law, Luca Piscatelli,
who is an officer in Bloomfield," Cecere expressed.
"He was given an award for the most DUI arrest in Essex County with 57,
which is also fourth in the state."
