Warren Development: We'll Always Stand Up for Berkeley Heights First

October 18, 2018

Last week, the Township of Warren voted to accept a court-imposed settlement with the NJ Fair Share Housing Center.  This was unwelcome news for many Berkeley Heights residents. As many will recall, this is the same property that Berkeley Heights residents overwhelmingly voted to prevent overdevelopment on Emerson Lane in 2013.  Now we are faced with a project on the exact same spot; ...

Hard work and perseverance - Lessons Learned from My Parents

I am not a politician.  I strive to be a good mother, wife and friend. My parents, who immigrated to this county, shaped my values. They taught me the value of rolling up my sleeves and working hard to solve problems and get results. Their life lessons made me who I am today - the right leader for Berkeley Heights right now – hard working, determined, working to creatively solve ...

We must end the groupthink mentality on our BOE

We must end the groupthink mentality on our BOE.

I recently noticed that the current incumbent Board of Education members running for re-election have teamed up to create a joint campaign task force and are publishing joint articles and candidate statements.

I believe this is why the parents and residents of Berkeley Heights should vote for me on November 6th as an independent voice on the ...

Berkeley Heights Rec Chair: Devanney Wrong, Attacks Hard Work of Volunteers

October 18, 2018

To the Editor,

My name is Ed Gallitelli, a 28-year resident of Berkeley Heights, and a volunteer for most of my time here in this great town.  I have been a member of the Recreation Commission since 2009, and have been Chair since 2016 when fellow members elected me as Chair of the Commission.

I was outraged to see our volunteer-led Recreation Commission become a victim of Angie ...

Tired of This Smear Campaign

Several weeks ago, I received a mailing from the Berkeley Heights Democrats.

The mailing referred to responsible fiscal management. The Incumbents are already ...

Is the Berkeley Heights BOE serving its oversight function or merely a rubber stamp for approval of the District's initiatives?

A 3 part series of open questions to the BOE candidates.

Part One - AP Class Stacking 

The District's initiative to raise GL's ranking relies heavily on the number of students who are enrolled in Advanced Placement (AP) classes and the number of AP classes and exams taken by students. Many questions come to mind with the stacking of APs even by very organized and ...

Tangents…Life’s Many Connections Through the Lens of Psychology

October 15, 2018

Welcome to my new column, Tangents.  The word tangent can have a variety of meanings, for example, in geometry a tangent refers to "a straight line or plane that touches a curve or curved surface at a point, but if extended does not cross it at that point." Leibniz defined it as the line through a pair of infinitely close points on the curve, but for this column, I will use the ...

Is Now the Right Time to Go Roth?

October 16, 2018: Is Now the Right Time to Go Roth?  Some say yes, pointing to the recent federal tax reforms.

Will federal income tax rates ever be lower than they are right now? Given the outlook for Social Security and Medicare, it is hard to imagine them falling much further. Higher federal income taxes could very well be on the horizon, as the tax cuts set by the 2017 reforms are ...
