I would like to address few issues that are facing Freehold 1- The continuous loss of power with any type of storm. we need to address this issue and find solutions for hanging branches between electric wires. leaning polls. this has to be resolved to effective measures taken by the township and JCP&L 2- effective management of the budget. we are in the midst of one of the most difficult economic times with the effects of COVID 19. the mall is loosing stores, community is struggling with defaults which consequently means less tax revenue and yet the township is going ahead with unnecessary expenses. we should hold on to the cash that we have as the town won't be able to collect the expected revenue. 3- enforcement of COVID 19 protection measures for example social distancing and face covering the correct way
