Kathleen Hart, RMC
Roosevelt Borough Clerk
33 North Rochdale Avenue
Roosevelt, NJ 08555
Dear Ms. Hart:
After much consideration, I have decided that I can no longer continue to serve as a member of the Roosevelt Borough Council. My paramount concern as a Council member has been to support effective code enforcement, an area in which I have spent most of my professional career and which I believe to be a necessary component of any plan to maintain Roosevelt as the safe, secure, decent community in which we all wish to live.
I have now become aware of actions by my remaining colleagues, based on a different philosophy of code enforcement, that I believe to be detrimental to this goal. I do not wish to be associated with those efforts and do not wish to support them by my continuing presence on the Council.
I therefore resign as a member of the Roosevelt Borough Council, effective immediately.
I wish to thank those, including both past and current Council colleagues, Borough officials and employees, and other citizens of Roosevelt who have supported me with their assistance and their good will during my years on the Council and my prior years of service to the Borough.
I trust you will advise the Governor’s office of the consequences of my resignation so that appropriate action may be taken, as provided by law.
Very truly yours,
Michael L. Ticktin
