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 ...

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,

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 ...
