Jerry Fried serves as one of the Lead Ambassadors in the pilot New Jersey Ambassadors in Motion program. His responsibilities include managing the Complete Streets campaign, and building and sustaining relationships with elected officials, counties, and municipalities throughout NJ.
Jerry Fried is a former Mayor of Montclair and a resident for 23 years. The Township has become a leader in sustainability initiatives and was the first Municipality in New Jersey to adopt a Complete Streets policy, something the State of New Jersey itself later adopted. He is the founder and former President of Bike/Walk Montclair, which works to make Montclair a safer place for pedestrians and cyclists and has been instrumental in procuring hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants for the Township. The group’s annual Tour de Montclair family bike ride attracts about 1000 participants.
