Biographical Information

In June this year the Board of Chosen Freeholders discussed passing a Resolution to oppose NJ being considered a "Sanctuary State” asserting that “sanctuary policies are harmful to the health, safety and welfare of the residents of Monmouth County". After public comment, this was tabled for revision and possible reconsideration. What is your position on a County Resolution to oppose "sanctuary" policies?

Voting security is a pressing national concern. How secure are our voting machines? What plans would/do you support to replace the current machines? What criteria would you consider when choosing replacements, including but not limited to guaranteeing an auditable paper trail?

The LWVNJ-Natural Resource Committee was very involved in waste management and getting recycling in place at least back as far as the 1980’s. With China and other SE Asian countries now refusing to take our plastic and some of our other “recyclable ” waste they have taken in the past, it looks like this is going to come back as a major problem for us. What ideas do you have to address this problem?
