Mayor's Quote of the Month

"As the Borough of Hightstown's new Mayor, I see what a difference the arts make in our community. I served as Borough Council liaison to the Hightstown Cultural Arts Commission for the past eight years and will continue to act as a liaison while Mayor. I witness firsthand the dedication of volunteers committed to bringing neighbors and businesses together through arts and cultural events. The return on municipal investment in local arts is measurable in many ways."

Susan Bluth, Mayor of Hightstown
