By Robert Press

Councilman Mark Gjonaj said that he is going to finish out his term which ends on January 1, 2022. “I will continue to do my job of serving the people of the 13th Council District until my last day as your councilman, that being December 32, 2021” Gjonaj told people at Monday’s ‘Book Bag and More’ giveaway. 

Councilman Gjonaj gave out over one hundred book bags, but he also gave out dinosaur face masks to the children, the famous Gjonaj whistle key chain that attaches to ones arm, information, hand sanitizer, and of course school supplies inside the book bags. 

The event was held in front of the fence of Loreto Park where construction has stalled on redoing the softball field for the community, which will not meet its scheduled September completion date. 

What Councilman Gjonaj will do comes January 1, 2022, is to be seen, as he would not give any hints. He said that he will work hard every day, and then see comes January first where he can be effective in the community he lives in.

First stop was to get some hand sanitizer to make sure one’s hands were germ free.
