“Thank you to the borough residents for having confidence in me,” Jordan said. “As the freshman council member, I’m excited to work with the mayor and council to promote collaborative partnerships for redevelopment, continue citizen engagement and do right by the residents of this wonderful little borough. I’m ready to get to to work.”
