Berkeley Heights Republican Committee Selects Robert Woodruff for Mayor

February 20, 2014 at 10:38 AM

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - “It is with unanimous support that the Berkeley Heights Republican Municipal Committee announces its selection of Robert Woodruff as its nominee for Mayor in the upcoming local election,” said David Ronner, Chairman.  “The Committee chose Woodruff for his continued commitment to the people of Berkeley Heights and his team approach to leadership.  Bob Woodruff has the experience and expertise to lead Berkeley Heights with a collaborative style and commitment to partnerships with the Township Council and the community at large,” said Ronner. The Committee also expressed its appreciation for Mayor Joe Bruno’s service to the community.

Currently a member of the Township Council, Woodruff also served as Mayor when then incumbent David Cohen assumed new duties within state government.  “I am humbled and proud to accept the nomination for Mayor,” said Woodruff.  “It has been an honor to serve the citizens of Berkeley Heights, and I look forward to continuing to work with the residents, our Council, Municipal staff, County and State officials in ensuring the continued growth and prosperity of our town.”  Upon the Committee’s announcement, Woodruff received ringing endorsements from all five fellow Council members: Jeanne Kingsley, Kevin Hall, Ed Delia, Tom Pirone, and Craig Pastore; State Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean Jr., State Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick, and State Assemblywoman Nancy Munoz. 

“What is equally impressive to note is that Bob has the skills and energy to reach beyond his Party and work with all people regardless of political affiliation,” said Ronner.  A lifelong resident of Union County, Woodruff commented that “The people of our town all want the same thing: a safe, vibrant community that continues to attract businesses and volunteers, a place where citizens know that their schools and property values are among the best in the state; a place where all citizens regardless of age are treated with dignity and respect and who know that their opinions are valued.  The only way to get where you want to go is by working together to achieve a common goal.”

Personally, I think that this will really and truly help everyone:

How Dare You?
