Dear Editor,

My name is Kathy Abbott, a current Chatham Township Committeeperson, and I am up for re-election on Tuesday. You won’t see my name on the ballot because I am a Write-In candidate. I lost by a mere 20 votes in the June Republican Primary, and that’s why friends of mine asked me to run a Write-In campaign for the General Election this Tuesday

If you care about quality of life and fiscal responsibility in Chatham Township, please Write me in, on Line 5.

I am a moderate Republican who has worked closely with residents on many quality-of-life projects such as improved pedestrian safety through the Safe Routes to School and Complete Streets programs, single stream recycling, and environmental health issues such as pesticide awareness, and I’ve started initial inquiry into a dog park.

In addition, I worked to update the township website, and I ask tough questions about financial transparency and the need for continued merging of staff in the Joint Recreation Dept. and updating the Office of Emergency Management.

Every vote counts.  A Write-In vote for me is a vote for smart, energetic municipal government that is responsive to you.

Steps on Tuesday:

1.    On Line 5 – Far Right Column, press “Write In” button.

2.    Key Board will light up.  Type in Kathy Abbott.

3.    Press Enter.

4.    Go to Line 6 – Vote Mike Kelly, my running mate in the June primary.
