My Skills Match Our Needs in These Groundbreaking Times

October 20, 2018

Shovels are in the ground for the NEW Municipal Building to replace the one built in 1939!  This is one of the biggest projects our Town has ever initiated in our history. It’s truly groundbreaking. 

Keep in mind that we will house the police, recreation, engineering, administration, seniors, DPW and library in a single facility. That’s one place to go to pay your ...

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

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 ...

Joined-up thinking needed in Berkeley Heights

October 20, 2018

Just as cursive, or “joined-up,” writing is an important skill for kids, so joined-up thinking is vital in any leadership team these days. Silo thinking, business as usual, can no longer keep up with our changing and ever more complex world. I support Angie, Stephen and Alvaro because they understand the need for joined-up thinking in our town.

For example, when asked in the debate ...

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

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. I thought it was odd, since I was a registered Republican. The issues they mentioned are all being accomplished by the Republican incumbents, Mayor Robert Woodruff, Councilman Michael D'Aquila and Councilwoman Michelle Greco.

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

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 ...

Order of Operations

As we trudge through submission season this year I’ve found some questions that have surprised me.  Those of us shepherding families through their college applications, myself included, can mistakenly start “talking shop” with the assumption that parents and students are following along.  Acronyms start flying around and we get into our groove, not realizing ...

Annuities Can Be Good, Bad or Ugly. Which Is Which? Part I

Annuities can be good, bad or downright ugly. How can you tell if your annuity is good, or if you should consider purchasing one? And what’s an annuity, anyway?.  In this two-part series, I’ll begin with a review of the “bad and ugly” annuities (most variable annuities). Next month I’ll review “good” annuities (primarily immediate and deferred fixed ...
