Swartz Works for the Whole Community


Dear Editor,

I am writing to offer a resounding endorsement of the re-election of Chatham Township Deputy Mayor Karen Swartz to the Township Committee beginning with Tuesday June 6 th’s Republican Primary.

For years I have worked on numerous Boards and Committees with Karen, including our Senior Center Board and St. Patrick Church Finance Council to name a couple. She is as dedicated and caring an individual as you will meet in our community and I have seen first-hand how she succeeds in bringing groups together to work towards a common goal.

Never was Karen’s leadership more evident than when our Chatham Jaycees, grappling with a volunteer shortage, faced the tough decision to end their traditional Christmas Tree Sale, a major fundraiser for The Chathams. Pulling together Chatham High School Key Club members and their parents and their Faculty Advisors along with officers and members of all ages in our local Kiwanis Club, she orchestrated a fresh supply of manpower that was enough to help the Tree Sale thrive once again.  Make no mistake of how this impacts thousands of dollars returning to our community in terms of college scholarships and support for our non-profits.

A respected public servant of this sort, who possesses such energy and spirit of cooperation, is hard to find. We in Chatham Township are lucky to have Karen Swartz serving on our Township Committee and we will be wise to see that she continues to do so by voting for her this Tuesday in the June 6 Republican Primary Election.

Proud of Chatham Township Residents During "Weather Events"

March 13, 2018

To the Editor

As I watch the next “Weather Event” cross my computer screen I am compelled not to roll my eyes in hopelessness to but reflect on the incredible response of helpfulness I have seen throughout the Chatham Township Community over the last several days. 

We are a rural community with dozen of miles of winding road yet we have seen our volunteer first ...
