Assemblywoman Angela V. McKnight represents the 31st Legislative District of New Jersey, which encompasses the city of Bayonne. In order to honor individuals, organizations and businesses that make a difference in the 31st District, she established the #Highlight31 campaign.
In launching the program, Mrs. McKnight said “#Highlight31 sends a message to the larger community that there are many great people in the district making things happen in our neighborhoods. This can give hope and make people believe they too can make a difference, but more importantly, that they are part of a special community that they should contribute to and invest in. Our hope is that by sharing these stories, #Highlight31 can inspire individuals to take action and be the change their community needs.”
On September 1st, the Windmill Alliance was delighted to have Assemblywoman McKnight visit the Windmill Center and recognize our organization as the August 2016 recipient of the #Highlight31 award. As the citation notes: "On the 31st day of August 2016, New Jersey Assemblywoman Angela V. McKnight LD31, does hereby officially thank you for your positive contributions in the 31st Legislative District which encompasses Bayonne and parts of Jersey City. State Assemblywoman Angela V. McKnight LD31 recognizes you for making a difference in your community; your dedication and commitment will continue to inspire and move the 31st Legislative Dustrict forward."
We thank our Assemblywoman for honoring our commitment to the community which is now in its 31st year! And to see the presentation on YouTube, click on this link.
