Ideas, Not Identity


Dear Editor-

Coming out of the 2016 National Election, we're seeing an inspiring amount of energy and overall engagement with politics. We are excited to see our friends and neighbors activate at the most local level in the Chatham Township race.

However in recent weeks, it has been rather disturbing to see smear campaigns, and even the mindless tribalism that some of the local Republicans are pushing - Vote Chatham / Vote Republican.

Talk ideas. Talk vision. Don't try to divide us up. That's what you do when you don't have good ideas.  When you don't have vision. It's not the type of messaging you put out to grow and engage a community.

Stacey Ewald, Tracy Ness and Salil Sheth are candidates that lead with ideas and vision. They want to have the community informed and actually involved in the decision-making process (imagine that!). 

An overall platform that outlines how Chatham Township can become even better, and still hold the line on everything that we all currently enjoy and value.

This is the people-powered, future-forward approach we need. So I ask - what kind of community leaders do you want...those that want to divide us up or those that want to bring us together? I say the latter.  

Vote Ewald, Ness & Sheth for Township Committee on Tuesday, Nov 7th. The future is brighter together.  

Thank you,

The Giamartino Family

Imagine a Chatham Toboggan Ride from the Top of Fairmount Avenue to Main Street

Did you know….
there was a time when Chatham kids could ice skate from downtown Chatham all the way to Florham Park? And that a toboggan ride could last from the top of Fairmount Avenue down to Main Street and beyond?

Those were the days!

This was back in the early to mid-1900s. The Passaic River meandered through grassy meadows and woods on the north side of Chatham. The marshy ...

To the Editor,

I told my daughter I needed to write about gun violence. Know what she told me? “Mom, be sure you’re not too polarizing. People won’t listen.” She’s right. At age eleven she’s figured out that we adults need to be reminded how to speak to one another in order to fix a problem. But I have hope and belief that we can fix that discourse in our ...
