EAP Represented at League of Municipalities
Dave Strochak, Executive Director the Elizabeth Avenue Partnership (EAP) was joined by Angel L. Rodriguez, of State Farm Insurance at the 101st Annual League of Municipalities Conference in Atlantic City as they represented the Elizabeth Avenue Special Improvement District at the City of Elizabeth’s Kiosk.

“The League of Municipalities is a great way for us to network, share ideas, learn new strategies and meet vendors that will eventually help our downtown improve,” Strochak said. “There are so many great resources at this conference. It’s amazing.”

Rodriguez, who was recently named Chairman of the EAP, made some great contacts at the League as well as attending the Mayor’s Urban Enterprise Zone Commission Meeting hosted by Mayor Chris Bollwage of Elizabeth. “It was very informative,” said Rodriguez, who has been a State Farm Agent at 815 Elizabeth Avenue for the past eight years, while serving on the EAP Board for the last seven. Rodriguez served as Treasurer of the EAP before being named Chairman.

The 101st Annual New Jersey State League of Municipalities Conference was held at the Atlantic City Convention Center Nov. 15-17th.

The New Jersey State League of Municipalities is a voluntary association created to help communities do a better job of self-government through pooling information resources and brain power. It is authorized by State Statute and since 1915, has been serving local officials throughout the Garden State. All 565 municipalities are members of the League. Over 560 mayors and 13,000 elected and appointed officials of member municipalities are entitled to all of the services and privileges of the League.

Commercial, government and association exhibits display the latest products and services for municipal government. At the 2004 Conference, more than 21,000 delegates, participants and guests attended, representing the largest municipal gathering in the country.
