Livingston Candidates Silverman, Anthony Host Fundraising Event

October 11, 2012 at 6:52 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ - Democratic candidates for town council Michael Silverman and Al Anthony hosted a fundraiser at the Crystal Plaza Wednesday night.

A brief introduction was given by Mayor Stephen Santola which was then followed by Freeholder and Chair of the Democratic Party, Pat Sebold. Sebold stressed the importance of the Nov. 6 election.

“We have to absolutely make sure that Michael Silverman and Al Anthony win this election,” Sebold said.

Sebold added that she is nothing but pleased with the two democratic candidates.

“We have two candidates who couldn’t be better and we are really lucky,” Sebold said. “Make sure you get everyone you know to vote that line A.”

Silverman told attendees that each day until the election is crucial.

“We have 26 more days to go so we need to make every day the best day we can. It is imperative that we get people out to the polls,” Silverman said.

Silverman added that since the town council has been under Democratic control, Livingston has had the lowest municipal tax rate in Essex County.

The Democrat candidate promised that “we will talk to you, listen to you, and give you answers. We are going to continue to make honest and truthful statements to the public. The key is to communicate respectfully.”

Anthony told the crowd that so far, he and Silverman have hit the pavement and visited over 2,000 homes to discuss their platform. By the election date, they plan to have visited 9,000.

“We will continue to walk until November 6 because we believe we have the right message. We think Livingston’s a great town and we want to keep it a great town,” Anthony said.

The two candidates also said they plan on reducing expenses where possible and keep the budget lines if elected.

Amongst Livingston residents, Mayor Ellie Cohen, Deputy Mayor Rudy Fernandez, Assemblywoman Mila Jasey and Freeholder Len Luciano to name a few, were in attendance to support the party and its candidates.

Most of us take our fingers and hands and elbows ...
