We are your neighbors and are proud to serve as your elected representatives. We’ve been working hard to make Berkeley Heights an even better place for families and residents of all ages to thrive.

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. Our town deserves better than the toxic politics we ...

Political Diversity on the Council Benefits Everyone

September 22, 2018

I am writing to express my support for Mayor Woodruff, Alvaro Medeiros and Stephen Yellin this election.  I know some might consider this a bit early but I've given this a good deal of thought for the past two months. Well longer than that, but who's keeping track?

The decision for who I would support for Mayor was very difficult.  I met Angie once and have heard about her ...

Stephen Yellin, Alvaro Medeiros and I have pledged to run a campaign based upon facts and the issues voters are most concerned about in Berkeley Heights.  It was our hope that the Mayor and his team would do likewise, and we publicly asked them to join us in making this pledge.  Instead, it is clear they have decided that it is better to “go low, not high” and attempt to ...

I got a call today from the anxious parent of a sixth grader who wanted some guidance on how to best help his student position herself for success in college.  What classes should she take now? 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 ...
