[ARCHIVED] Mayor's Message on Thanksgiving

Mayor Glackin

Please be safe and enjoy time with family

Dear Hazlet Residents,

I am writing to wish you all Hazlet residents and their families wishes of health and happiness during this Thanksgiving holiday. It has been a challenging year for everyone. But even in these difficult times, we can be grateful.

As the pandemic continues, we must continue to be on the defense. The Monmouth County Health Department reports increases of COVID-19 cases and the transmittal rate in the county and in Hazlet. The county also reports an increase in COVID-19 related hospitalizations, patients in intensive care and on ventilators. Free COVID-19 testing is available, see upcoming dates.

I know that many of us are experiencing “COVID fatigue.” Many have grown tired of the precautions and the restrictions. But we must be vigilant. Governor Murphy’s Executive Order #196 limits indoor gatherings to 10 people. If you plan to travel, consider the risk. Be aware of any travel advisories, which are posted on the Information Hub at

My Thanksgivings are usually celebrated with my wife and daughters and my extended family. It is a day that I look forward to every year. This year I will be celebrating it at home with just my immediate family, but virtually with others. As cases continue to increase exponentially across the United States, we thought it best to be safe and stay home. Please take precautions with your holiday plans. Being safe is a gift we can give each other.

When holiday shopping, I urge you make a planned effort to support our Hazlet businesses. Our merchants have invested in our town. They provide jobs and services and support our local charities. Their doors are open and safety protocols are in place. Many will take your order over the phone for curbside pickup or take special orders. Please shop early, and often, in our own hometown to help them thrive.

Thank you to the Hazlet-based RAINE Foundation volunteers and partners for once again providing Thanksgiving food boxes to our Bayshore community.  We salute their kindness.

On behalf of the members of the Township Committee, we wish you a happy and safe Thanksgiving.



Mike Glackin
Mayor of Hazlet
