On Monday he held the first of four breakfast events to help everyone get to know each other. No tax dollars were spent on the event. Reilich says he picked up the breakfast tab himself. Workers in every department were invited. Reilich says he hopes the less formal meeting will help employees feel comfortable coming to him with future concerns.
"We have nearly 400 employees and to reach every one of them, since we have a 24/7 operation, would take a great deal of time. This is a way to expedite that process so they feel comfortable reaching out to me and I get to know who they are," Reilich said.
Reilich was elected to the four-year term in November and took office earlier this month. He is the former State Assemblyman for that area.
