Congratulations to first female mayor of Jersey Shore

We join the many residents of Jersey Shore in congratulating Abbey Welker as the borough’s new mayor.

And based on Abbey’s resume and body of work, she’s the right person for the job.

This young woman was born and raised in Jersey Shore and works with her family at their family-owned funeral home.

She goes to a local church and is a member of various local civic and professional organizations, plus the Elks, Moose, VFW and American Legion posts.

What we admire most is that she’s young, has fresh ideas and, as she told The Express, “I care so much about our town.

“It’s a special community. I’m very proud and honored to be able to be a part of something great.”

Notice she said “a part of …”

That a girl, Abbey.

Being a part of something — and something pretty special in this case — tells us you’re going to succeed for the people of Jersey Shore in all of the right ways!

God Bless and good luck!
