A Statement from Mayor Morieko & Members of the Council

To our Glen Rock neighbors and residents:

We have been made aware of a post that appeared on one of our Council Member’s personal Instagram stories. This post invoked Easter, the holiest day of the year in the Christian calendar, in a point about two issues that have nothing to do with Easter.  As Mayor and members of the Borough Council, we want to apologize to everyone who was offended by this post.

We all feel very strongly that everyone’s religious beliefs and traditions must be treated with respect. They should not be the subject of jokes or inflammatory social media posts.  That is even more true when the social media post is made by an elected official, because we are here to represent and support all Glen Rockers of all religious beliefs and backgrounds.  We understand how important Easter and the symbols of Easter are to the many Glen Rockers who celebrate.  

As we have stated on many occasions before, we believe strongly that Glen Rock should be an inclusive community that celebrates and honors everyone’s religious beliefs and traditions.  This includes Christianity as well as all of the other religions represented in town.  We call on all Glen Rockers to support and respect each other, and as your elected officials, we continue to strive to be examples of that support and respect.  

Mayor Kristine Morieko, Council President Jill Orlich, Council Member Amy Martin, Council Member Mary Barchetto, Council Member Teresa Gilbreath, Council Member Regina Viadro, and Council Member Paula Gilligan
