Jay Gillian Captures Second Term as Mayor by Wide Margin

first_imgMayor Jay Gillian and his wife, Michele, celebrate his re-election at the Flanders Hotel on Tuesday night.Ocean City Mayor Jay Gillian won re-election Tuesday with 60.4 percent of the voteHe defeated Ed Price, 2,112 to 1,380, to capture his second term in office.The results include vote-by-mail ballots but will not be official until they are certified by the Clerk’s Office — likely by later this week.Voter turnout for a municipal election that also featured a five-way race for three City Council seats was 39.11 percent — with 3,533 of Ocean City’s 9,033 registered voters casting ballots.“I’m humbled, and I think the message is that people like the way the town is running now,” Gillian said Tuesday night. “It makes me want to work even harder.”Gillian, 49, is a lifelong Ocean City resident and the owner of Gillian’s Wonderland Pier on the Ocean City Boardwalk.In his campaign, he pointed to “an aggressive five-year Capital Improvement Plan that includes $10 million in much-needed investment in the city’s infrastructure.” The plan allocates $5 million alone to road and drainage improvements.“I’m shocked that Ocean City did not want to change,” Price said after the election at a gathering at Ocean Reef. “For as many doors as I knocked on and listened to people talk about change, they didn’t really want to change.”“But it was clear what the voters said,” he said.Price, 54, said his candidacy already has done some good. He and Gillian each responded to a question about beautifying Ocean City’s gateways during a candidates’ debate on May 7.“The next day, Jay has landscapers there,” Price said of a recent project at the corner of 34th Street and Bay Avenue.“I’m not unhappy I ran,” Price said.He congratulated the other candidates, particularly unsuccessful City Council candidates Eric Sauder and Mike Hyson.“It takes a lot of courage to run,” he said.Gillian will serve another four-year term. An ordinance sets the part-time mayor’s annual salary at $20,600, but Gillian said that, as in his first term, he will not accept the salary.See complete vote tally by ward.__________Sign up for OCNJ Daily’s free newsletter and breaking news alerts“Like” us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisIn today’s Senior Living, we focus on the upcoming Kinship Grant for Alpena families.Coming Tuesday, February 7th the Alpena Senior Citizens Center will be holding a Kinship Grant meeting for all grandparents raising grandchildren.This mini grants program is designed to help families who may need some assistance in taking care of their loved ones.“It’s to buy things for grandchildren and it could be maybe a new pair of sneakers and a new winter coat or it could be a membership to the boys club, or boys scouts, or whatever…maybe a sports opportunity. We all know there’s equipment to buy and maybe it’s skates, whatever it is that the child would like to do to become involved in the community, in their school or just have the clothing to start school, and be apart of the things that are going on,” MMAP Kitty Glomski said.According to the 2015 American Community Survey Census, there are 122 grandparent households in Alpena County living in with one or more of their grandchildren.The meeting has a lot of advantages including meeting other grandparents in the area caring for their grandchildren.“There’s something to be said for knowing that you’re not alone doing that. Offering your support and the knowledge and getting together so this is going to be a wonderful meeting for us all,” she said.Certain circumstances can cause one to become part of a Kinship. The mini grant is offered twice a year. Glomski said grants like the Kinship helps children and their families who are in need.Glomski wants every grandparent who is involved with taking care of a grandchild to know that this program isn’t income based.“The mini grants are $150 every 6 months you can apply. But we’re hoping to reach a lot more families and help them know that this is available. So we’re hoping that it will help out on an annual basis,” Glomski added.If you are interested in learning more about the Kinship program, the meeting starts at 10 am on Tuesday, February 7th at the Senior Citizens Center. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: American Community Survey Census, Kinship Grant, senior livingContinue ReadingPrevious Mister Roberts Showing at Alpena Civic TheaterNext Michigan State Police Alpena Post Gets a New Patrol Car in Honor of 100th Anniversarylast_img read more
