Swartz Announces Run for Re-election to Chatham Township Committee

Chatham Township Deputy Mayor Karen Swartz announces re-election bid

CHATHAM, NJ - Chatham Township Deputy Mayor Karen M. Swartz announced Sunday that she will be seeking one of two ballot spots for November re-election to the township committee by running in this June’s Primary race.

“I’m proud to say that since I took office in 2015 we, that is my fellow township committee members and I, have made significant changes and improvements in many important areas," Swartz said. "Through careful examination, public engagement and prudent administration our township boasts of a Aaa Moody’s rating and a municipal tax burden commensurate with that of 2007. I’ve proudly voted against tax increases at every turn and my goal is to continue that record. We work too hard in this part of the world to settle for anything less than prudent spending and sound judgment from our government.

“We've made changes to technology and social media platforms that keep Township Residents informed on all matters of varying urgency. I’m personally proud to have developed close working relationships with our Electric, Natural Gas and Water Utilities to the point of having open,  “24/7” lines of communication.”

Swartz also serves as an officer on the Chatham Township Planning Board, is a liaison to the Environmental Commission and the Chatham Senior Center. Swartz also served on the board of health during the formation of the Tri-Town 55-plus, which is launching a senior rides program.

"I want to insure that Chatham Township continues its rise in Safest and Most Desirable Places, to remain on a fiscally even keel, and to work closely with the extensive battery of Public Safety Officials and volunteers who serve with dedication on many local commissions and boards to keep this community among the very best places to live in the state if not the nation."

The Primary Elections are scheduled for Tuesday, June 6.

To the Editor
