After a lot of reflection and countless conversations, I’ve made the decision to run for a seat on the Chester Township Council.
Talking with more than 50 residents about this opportunity—one at a time, often at their kitchen tables—has taught me a lot about our community and what we all expect from town hall and each other. It also helped bring into focus the kind of Chester Township I'd like to see in the next decade.
I’m running for three main reasons, and I welcome your input on each:
I’m excited to work with our mayor and Council on these priorities, but I also welcome your own ideas. I'm especially eager to hear what kind of Chester Township you'd like to see in the future.
For those just getting to know my family, Lauren and I are so proud to call Chester Township home and excited about raising our daughters - Ella and Sadie - in this special, family-oriented community.
If there is a festival in town, we are there. We’ve had mixed success getting Ella to enjoy the horse rides in Chubb Park, but we did pick three out of the four winners at the Soup & Chili Cook-Off last year. Ella and Sadie attend Suburban Hills School and we could not be happier with the attention and support they receive there.
On most weekends, when the weather’s nice, you can find the four of us on one of the local playgrounds, walking around a pick your own farm, or checking out the week’s books for bedtime at the library. We enjoy going to Redwoods Grill and are determined to someday win the children’s coloring contest.
Professionally, I’m the managing principal at Morristown-based ASG Advisors, where I develop policy solutions for some of our state’s leading foundations – lately focused on preventing human trafficking, expanding school field trips, and fighting New Jersey’s opioid epidemic. I’ve previously worked on Capitol Hill and at the Department of Interior in an office dedicated to cleaning up our public lands.
Here in town, I serve on the Chester Township Marketing & Communications Committee, through which I’d like to attract new residents and visitors to town, and share with more people what makes our community so great. As a volunteer Merit Badge counselor, I work with local Boy Scouts on the three citizenship badges.
The Republican primary is Tuesday, June 6th, so we have a lot of time to talk. I look forward to starting this conversation, humbly asking for your support, and – if we do this well – serving you on the Chester Township Council.
