To the Editor:

I am writing in support of Karen Swartz for re-election to our Chatham Township Committee. As a longtime resident of the Township myself, I support Karen and her efforts. Her countless hours researching and educating herself on issues that directly affect our community is time well-spent.

Whether at the local or county level, Karen works tirelessly to fight for issues that are best for Chatham Township. She is easily accessible, making time for her constituents, to listen and work toward the common good. Personally, I asked to meet with her about a concern and she made time the next day. She was a wealth of information and even accompanied me a few weeks later to introduce me personally to the people at the next level. I can’t thank her enough for her time and personal support.

In addition, Karen has been a voice of reason when voting and commenting on issues brought before the Committee. Whether it be the Pilgrim Pipeline or Planning Board issues, Karen’s voice is heard championing what is best for our community. She takes her role seriously and cares deeply about making sure that whatever issues are presented to the council, they are resolved by listening to the concerns of all sides.

These days, politics can be a dividing topic. I know that Karen Swartz loves her job and her town and is dedicated to maintaining the close knit community we have come to know here in Chatham Township. For this I am grateful, and ask that you join me in re-electing Karen Swartz to Township Committee.
