Dear Editor,

There is an important election coming up on November 5th. This race is about electing people who have been faithful to Chatham – consistent volunteers demonstrating their love and concern for the Borough by being involved for many years.  Chatham Borough has been a well-run municipality. Conservative fiscal values have rewarded Chatham Borough with AAA credit ratings, a low debt burden, sound budgeting practices and stable property taxes.  It’s taken many years of conservatism to attain these accomplishments.

Bob Weber is running for Mayor of Chatham.  In his 21 months serving on the Council, he has accomplished much in serving Chatham Borough. Bob convinced the Council to vote against marijuana legalization; endorsed hiring a Class III Police Officer for our schools; campaigned to save a pathway between Vine St & Tallmadge Ave; secured an additional handicap parking space at Borough Hall; and advocated for a turnaround on Tallmadge Ave to assist Handicap Bus transports. Bob listens to and supports his community.

Aside from Council achievements, over the 26 years living in Chatham, Bob has been committed to the Boy Scouts ushering many boys through the Eagle Scout program; coached recreation sports and taught as a substitute at the Chatham Middle & High School.  Having served as Assistant Morris County Prosecutor, Bob believes in giving back to the community and his volunteerism is exemplary. Bob deserves to be Mayor. Allow him to continue his service to Chatham Borough.

Stacey McEvoy, editor of the Chatham Living magazine, one of the few publications that shares “good news”, and evidence of her compassion.  Stacey has lived and served the community for 17 years. And now she has stepped up to offer her service and her time to keep Chatham’s success moving forward.  By being an active participant in the Borough, she is knowledgeable of the town, its needs and its future.  Stacey will serve on the Borough Council with intelligence and grace.

Since moving to Chatham in 1993, I’ve seen productive and unproductive council members come and go.  I’ve seen claims made in running for the Council that are never fulfilled.  In Paul Kelley, I see a bright, young family man bringing his working knowledge of the Zoning board to the Council to strategize for the betterment of Chatham, especially for the town’s historic feel, which is constantly in jeopardy.  Because Paul is intelligent and genuinely cares for Chatham, I see him bringing these strengths to the Council.  That is why I support Paul Kelley for Council.

Please go to the polls on November 5th and cast your vote.

Please elect Bob Weber for Mayor.

Please elect Stacey McEvoy for Borough Council.

Please elect Paul Kelley for Borough Council.
