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.”

Safety Notice to Early Morning Joggers

To the Editor: With dawn coming later and sunset coming earlier, more joggers are running on the roads in darkness. It is unfortunate that they need to be reminded that it is difficult for drivers to see them if they wear dark clothes and do not carry some kind of light. I  do not understand why joggers would put themselves in danger when reflective vests and small, lightweight lights ...

Early What?

Why does everything have to be so darn complicated?  A few months ago we went over all the different major application companies and now I have to confuse things further by talking about the different priority dates.

There’s some good news and some bad news.  Bad news first?  As with so many other things schools all set application dates separately and many seem determined ...

Going Toe to Toe

There are a lot of body parts I’m not particularly happy with (you thighs know who you are), but the one part of me I’ve never been bothered by is my feet. Not to be conceited, but I’ve always thought I had pretty nice feet, as far as feet go. They are not too fat or too thin, my arches are not too high or too low, and my toes all line up nicely in descending order. I ...

Rotation is a primary pattern used in pretty much every sport.

Baseball swings, Football throws, Lacrosse shots, Swimming turns, Gymnastics flips, Soccer kicks

You name the sport and there is a robust amount of hip rotation you can find.

A common mistake in rotation is that athletes tend to use their upper bodies or back too much to drive this movement.

This may lead to successful ...
