BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Town Council Vice President Jeanne Kingsley and President Marc Faecher have received the enthusiastic endorsement of State Senator Tom Kean, Jr., State Republican Leader Assemblyman Jon Bramnick, and Assemblywoman Nancy Munoz. The Senator and District 21 Representatives shared the following, “A community cannot thrive or move forward without solid leadership. And leadership cannot be productive without collective vision, determination, and the willingness to bring about positive change through the collaborative action of government officials in partnership with their citizens. Jeanne Kingsley and Marc Faecher have not just offered words to the people of Berkeley Heights, but instead have worked with them to achieve results that have enhanced their town and the quality of life of its residents. We are proud to endorse them.”

On Friday May 12 at 7:30pm at Mt. Carmel Hall, Assemblyman Bramnick will be sharing his enthusiasm for Kingsley and Faecher as the featured performer at their “Fun”Raiser Comedy Night. Bramnick has been voted “New Jersey’s Funniest Lawyer” offering his comedic skills to charities and organizations for over twenty-five years. He has performed from Cleveland to Atlantic City, shared his talents at the Stress Factory in New Brunswick and as a popular featured performer at political roasts. This special night of humor provides the opportunity to get to know the candidates, state, and local representatives.

Kingsley and Faecher were unanimously selected by the Berkeley Heights Republican Municipal Committee to seek re-election. Their goal has been to work for all citizens of Berkeley Heights. With a broad base of community support, they are committed to Public/Private Partnerships which have been a fundamental financial component of the progress that has been made. Fiscally prudent and taxpayers themselves, they have provided leadership, transparency, and initiatives that support Town improvements and services without additional taxpayer burden. Staying within budget cap and cost savings have resulted from their leadership, including: increased revenues through grants, shared services, and expanded relationships with the Board of Education, Union County, and State officials. Establishing a respectful and inclusive tone for Council meetings, inviting resident input, requiring solid research, careful budgeting, and sound decision-making, they have taken consistent action to solve problems. Together with residents, community stakeholders, non-profit organizations, businesses, and government officials, positive results have been achieved that are in the best interests of Berkeley Heights and its citizens. Taking the lead in affordable housing negotiations, they have saved taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars in potential litigation costs and reduced housing density proposals of developers. Committed to maintaining affordability for all residents, they are passionate about Berkeley Heights, its rich heritage and traditions, volunteerism, and commitment to a small town feel.
