To the Editor:

It is the time of the year when we are asked to select our leadership, not only for government, but also for the school board by casting our ballot. If you have students attending school now or in the future, the election that takes place on Tuesday is very important.  

I encourage you to support the experienced leadership of candidate Evan Lerner. I came to know Evan when he was previously on the school board through my role as the township council's school board liaison, meeting with him several times through the year about various issues related to educating our children.

When it came time to select someone to co-chair the volunteer committee charged with the responsibility of planning for the future of the Somerset Regional Animal Shelter, I asked Evan to take the lead and he effectively led the committee through some very difficult issues around the future of the shelter.

I currently have the pleasure of serving with him on the Bridgewater Township Planning Board.  Evan comes to every decision with a keen sense of what is in the best interest of the township and looks at development applications with the potential impact on the school system in mind.

I hope you will join me in voting for Evan on Nov. 7 as he brings a demonstrated commitment to the community and proven experience to the board.

Sincerely,

Christine Henderson Rose

Bridgewater Township Councilwoman
