Welcome Message from Mayor Lester E. Taylor III


Dear residents, business owners, friends and visitors:

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the official website of the City of East Orange. Our goal is to provide you with a website that is easy to navigate and functions as a valuable gateway to discovering information about City resources and services, recreational and cultural activities and events, job openings and training opportunities, public safety announcements, business tools and more.

We are building a service-oriented Administration that is more open, accessible and responsive to our citizens and stakeholders. Our website and various digital platforms, such as social media, can be powerful tools in fulfilling these goals. We are already hard at work, looking at ways to enhance these platforms. I welcome and encourage your ideas and suggestions as well.

Additionally, I am excited to announce the opening of the Mayor’s Office of Constituent Services. We are here to help, so ask us your questions, share your ideas, report a problem or request support. Our Constituent Services staff is trained to connect you with the information and services that you need. Our team takes a hands-on approach to make sure that your issue is addressed and you receive a timely response.

Please click here to contact the Office of Constituent Services.

Thank you for this opportunity to serve our City. I invite you to get involved. Let us know how we are doing so that we can improve upon all that we do. Together, we will make East Orange an even better place to live, work and play.


Mayor Lester E. Taylor, III
