Our community is very small and very unique. In order to keep the level of safety , I feel there needs to be stepped up security in the Borough. The community overall is doing well however the Council is not balanced. There are citizens in the community that have no representation. My presence on the council will give Democrats in the community a voice. Considering my years of experience on the Board of Adjustment and County Committee, I feel I have the experience to participate in Municipal government.
Resolutions that recognize every citizen . Resolutions that demonstrate a moral compass to protect and encourage everyone to participate in Municipal government.
At this timer I am not privy to budget information. Should I be elected to the council I would study and reflect on budget priorities. My goal in reviewing budgets would be to ensure that all Budgets are transparent . The goal of the community in my opinion should be continuing the wonderful Municipality that now exits in Far Hills. This can be done by contributing to a "great educational system" , " a "Wonderful Police and Fire Department" and an inclusive community that affords all residents equality.
