Comedy Night "Fun”Raiser Features Assemblyman Jon Bramnick


The Berkeley Heights Republican Municipal Committee invites you to a special night of humor featuring District 21 and Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick. Voted “New Jersey’s Funniest Lawyer,” Assemblyman Bramnick has offered his comedic skills to charities and organizations for over twenty-five years, performing from Cleveland to Atlantic City. Well known for his comedy, he has shared his talents at the Stress Factory in New Brunswick and as a popular featured performer at political roasts. The May 12 event is a “Fun”Raiser to get to know Berkeley Heights Town Council representatives Jeanne Kingsley and Marc Faecher, who are seeking re-election. “Laughter is universal,” said Event Co-Chair Jessica Schmidt, adding “Here in Berkeley Heights, residents and elected officials are neighbors, working together for a vibrant community. Jeanne and Marc have worked tirelessly for all of us. A night of fun is a great way to get to know them and Assemblyman Bramnick. Join us!”

Jeanne Kingsley and Marc Faecher were unanimously chosen by the Republican Municipal Committee to run for re-election. With broad community support, they have provided consistent leadership; building collaborative relationships, taking effective action with community stakeholders and achieving positive results. “One of the most important things to remember in this local election,” commented event CoChair Julie Lloyd, “is that in Berkeley Heights, local leadership is all about working together. Jeanne and Marc have always put working with all citizens, regardless of political affiliation, at the top of the list. They are taxpayers themselves, and understand that maintaining affordability and pursuing grants and alternative ways to fund projects and services is essential to that premise. Their efforts have garnered funding for Town improvements, parks and recreation programs and vital services for our Seniors without adding taxpayer burden. They’ve taken the leadership role in affordable housing negotiations, saving hundreds of thousands in litigation costs; keeping our small town feel and preventing high density housing from changing our community.”

For more details and to RSVP to the event, contact Julie Lloyd at Julie.lloyd@verizon.net. To learn more about Kingsley and Faecher, follow them on Facebook at Kingsley and Faecher 2017 Town Council or visit their website at KingsleyFaecher2017.com. Donations to their campaign are welcome at the event or by mailing payable to: Kingsley and Faecher for Town Council, 16 Coachman Court, Berkeley Heights, NJ 07922. The Republican Primary is June 6. Unaffiliated voters may vote in the Primary by declaring party affiliation at their polling location. The polls are open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.

What's Hot and What's Not

Summer is a great time to take a step back, sip a cool beverage, and take a look at what’s going on in the world of college admissions.  Departments use the summer to evaluate how their year went and plan on any changes they want to make for the fall.  Did they over-enroll? Under-enroll?  What application materials were useful to them?  Which were redundant or time ...
