Swartz is the "Most Qualified" for Chatham Township Committee


To The Editor:

I am endorsing Deputy Mayor Karen Swartz for the Chatham Township Committee. She is the most qualified person to fill this position! She truly exemplifies honesty, fairness, thoughtfulness, respect and an intellect far beyond her years.

She understands the importance of dealing congenially with the residents of our special town.

The manner in which she handled the communication from start to finish with the Lafayette Avenue water main replacement between the utility and our residents was indicative of the relationships she has built with NJ American Water, JCP&L and to a lesser extent, PSE&G.

It certainly enhanced every detail from predictability of service, service interruptions and service restoration. I commend her for the professionalism and experience which she exhibited throughout the project.

In our neighborhood, Mrs. Swartz was the primary organizer of gathering neighbors to join in the Neighborhood Watch Program. Once again, it was all about her communicating of thoughts and ideas and achieving an innovative program to promote better safety in our area or town.

Karen’s main goal for the township is to keep it running smoothly without raising those “abominable” taxes. Like any government large or small, she knows that the committee has to constantly weigh any additional increases against the needs of all the families residing here.

She continues to be very cautious about spending our tax dollars because she realizes the demands and price increases in every facet around us.

Finally, I have lived in Chatham for 43 years and retired from the School District of the Chathams after 30 years of teaching. Karen has been my next-door neighbor for 27 years and believe me when I say, “She never sleeps.” Her energy, dedication and volunteerism to this town is beyond words!

I put my heart, soul and trust in her because I know for a fact that she will get the job done for us.

Please vote for Karen Swartz on Tuesday, June 6.

Thank you.
