Manasquan Borough Council {_getChooseLabel(this.selections.length)}

BOROUGH COUNCIL – Full Term – Vote for TwoManasquan is governed under the Borough form of New Jersey municipal government. The governing body consists of a Mayor and a Borough Council comprising six council members, with all positions elected at-large on a partisan basis as part of the November general election. A Mayor is elected directly by the voters to a four-year term of office. The Borough Council consists of six members elected to serve three-year terms on a staggered basis, with two seats coming up for election each year in a three-year cycle. The Borough form of government used by Manasquan, the most common system used in the state, is a "weak mayor / strong council" government in which council members act as the legislative body with the mayor presiding at meetings and voting only in the event of a tie. The mayor can veto ordinances subject to an override by a two-thirds majority vote of the council. The mayor makes committee and liaison assignments for council members, and most appointments are made by the mayor with the advice and consent of the council.

As an Accountant, I will work to keep taxes stable. This is important! Manasquan has always been about extended families living here together!

I propose planting 100 shade trees per year. This will be resident driven, in part, to replace the trees we lost in recent storms and to safeguard us from the summer heat. Sign-up with the STC for your shade tree now!

We should save the historic Glimmer Glass Bridge.

When we moved to Manasquan 18 years ago, we loved that it was a safe place for our children to grow up. I see kids riding their bikes to school or to the beach and it warms my heart as I know that those kids are growing up with the same sense of freedom that my kids enjoyed because they lived in a safe place. That's what I want to preserve.
