Greeting From Mayor

A Greeting From Mayor Polly Sierer

Thank you for visiting our website! Newark is a wonderful City, and as Mayor, I strive to advocate for Newark to ensure it remains a place to live, work and thrive. As a proud Newark resident for more than 25 years, it is important to me to encourage new ideas, like the Healthy Newark Initiative. As a community leader, I work to build strong relationships within the City through continued collaborations among the University of Delaware, local businesses, and all of the residents of Newark.

I hope you will visit Newark soon to see all it has to offer for neighbors and visitors alike!

We are strong on history and rich in tradition. You will never want to leave!
