Republican Municipal Committee Announces Sincaglia as Kingsley's Running Mate for Berkeley Heights Township Council


BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Republican Municipal Committee is pleased to announce our unanimous support for John Sincaglia to be Jeanne Kingsley’s running mate in the November 2017 General Election. They will seek election for the two open Township Council positions.

Incumbents Jeanne Kingsley and Marc Faecher won the Republican primary in June 2017. Marc recently notified the County Clerk and Berkeley Heights Republican Municipal Committee that due to a significant change in employment responsibilities and commitments, he would be unable to run for re-election. He will be completing his current term, and we thank him for his contributions to our community, notably his lead in successfully working with state and local entities in negotiating settlements regarding state mandated affordable housing requirements impacting our town. His tireless efforts have showcased his commitment to work for all residents and place Berkeley Heights in a position to thrive.

John Sincaglia, a long time (29 year) resident and active member of the community, will replace Marc on the November 7, 2017 ballot. “I actively campaigned for Marc and Jeanne this past spring and am disappointed to hear of Marc’s decision. That being said, I am a strong advocate of what the team stands for – Leadership, Action, Results. I am proud to be joining Jeanne and thank the Municipal Committee for their support.”

John’s outstanding contributions to our community are varied and numerous. He was a coach for BH recreational, club and YMCA soccer teams for more than 9 years and a member of numerous volunteer committees including: Citizens Advisory Committee-Field Lighting, BH, Active Fund Raiser for Highlander Foundation BH, Highland Park Human Rights Commission and NJ Gubernatorial Inaugural Commission. Most notable is John’s 12 years of service to our community on the Board of Education. During his tenure, John served as President, Vice President, Chairman of the Finance Committee, past chairman Negotiations Committee, member of Facilities Committee, Personnel Committee and rep to PTO Area Council and Curriculum Advisory Committee.

John has had an extremely successful career in School Business Administration in three different school districts in NJ. “During my time as a professional administrator, I helped prepare 21 budgets, 19 of which were approved by the voters.” John is a proven leader, seeking input and working effectively with others to take action and achieve successful results; understanding the critical importance of due diligence and the impact of decisions on residents and our community. We are excited to have him on the ballot this November 7th!

The Kingsley and Sincaglia team will be reaching out to the community with a number of meet and greet events during the fall campaign season. John and Jeanne look forward to hearing from you and representing you on the Town Council in 2018.

Heidi Cohen.

Chair, Berkeley Heights Republican Municipal Committee
