Sullivan Making a Positive Difference in Chatham Township


Dear Editor,

I strongly endorse Mayor Kevin Sullivan’s re-election to the Chatham Township Committee and encourage Township residents to support Mayor Sullivan by voting for him in the Republican Primary on Tuesday, June 2nd.

I have known Kevin Sullivan for over 15 years and worked with him in a variety of capacities in educational organizations and athletic programs in Chatham. During this time, Kevin has been a pleasure to work with and I have found him to be a level-headed, fair minded, team-oriented individual of the highest caliber.

I am convinced that Mayor Sullivan’s platform focusing on his positive contributions and commitment to the Township will continue to serve him well in his bid for re-election to the Township Committee. During his tenure as our current Mayor, I have found that Kevin’s strengths fit well with the qualities and qualifications necessary for successfully running the Chatham Township Committee and our great town. I have always found Kevin to be an effective and dedicated person who stays focused on successfully executing his duties in a competent, communicative and consistent manner.

I think one of Kevin’s greatest strengths (which he has clearly demonstrated while Mayor on the Township Committee) is his strong desire to listen to all the needs and concerns of all Chatham Township residents and exercise his  duties responsibilities with  sensitivity to a variety of views held within our community.  

In addition to his open and responsive leadership style, he has an overriding desire to provide the highest level of township services with the discipline to keep township finances under tight control. He understands the concern that many residents have with the threat of ever increasing real estate taxes.  

Although many of our home real estate taxes have increased due to increased costs of running a high quality school system the municipal tax component of our real estate tax bill has been managed well by Mayor Sullivan. Under his tenure as mayor, Chatham Township is in its fifth year of no municipal tax increase. It’s important to note that Mayor Sullivan was successful in actually reducing the municipal tax burden in 2015.

Based on his performance to date, I believe he will continue to manage the township finances in a manner allowing for the highest level of services for the best value for all Chatham Township residents.   

Not only does Mayor Sullivan manage the Township’s fiscal situation mindfully, Kevin has also demonstrated a strong commitment to protecting and preserving our community’s environment.  Mayor Sullivan led the efforts to preserve 136 acres at Giralda Farms for public benefit/use and minimized any cost to the Township in accomplishing this land preservation.  While Township Mayor, Kevin also proactively lead the effort to sponsor a local ordinance banning unregulated oil pipelines through Chatham Township.

For these reasons, I urge my fellow Chatham Township residents to vote for Kevin Sullivan for Township Committee on Tuesday, June 2nd. Your support of Mayor Kevin Sullivan can and will continue to make a positive difference in our great community.

Dear Editor,


With spring holding off threats of snow, recent memories of the Nor’Easter that paralyzed the region are still engraved in my mind. In the height of the last big storm a 65 foot tall, 2½ foot wide white pine gave way to the heavy snow and landed on the house pulling our power line down, 1700 other Chathamites had lost power and trees were down ...
