In Berkeley Heights, We Respect Our Neighbors

We are proud to be running to serve the people of Berkeley Heights as Mayor and Township Council members, respectively. As we’ve met with and listened to residents across our town for the last several months, one of the most important things they’ve told us is that they’re sick and tired of gutter-worthy, political mudslinging.

Would it be worth it to investigate private school? When is it too early to start looking at college campuses?

While thinking college with a 12-year-old may seem crazy to some, any parent reading ...
