CRANFORD, NJ – Downtown Cranford recently announced its new marketing campaign, “Cooler in Cranford,” to promote Cranford’s shops, restaurants, events and more.

The “Cooler in Cranford” logo and decal will pop up at business around the town. Additionally, tee shirts with the logo were created by Think D-Sign Print and are available for purchase at the store.

“There’s a variety of reasons we think it’s ‘Cooler in Cranford,” Kathleen Miller-Prunty, Director of Downtown Cranford, said. “Rock Yoga in the Street, the Paint Out in September, Duck Race, LEGO night and of course, the Scarecrow Stroll. The public piano at Eastman Plaza has been a huge hit and helps to make downtown a more fun place. This promotion began in the downtown but really is a shout out to all of the interesting and fun activities throughout Cranford.”

Miller-Prunty asks that people spread the word using the hashtag #coolerinCranford and speak up about their favorite things to do in Cranford. She also thanks realtor Sharon Steele for enthusiastically supporting the community and sponsoring the tee shirts.

“We’d love to hear from the public about why they think Cranford is a cooler place to live, shop, work and enjoy and hope people will share the message that it really is #coolerincranford,” Miller-Prunty said.

Fortunately, there is a terrific candidate in New Jersey's 7th Congressional District who can beat incumbent Leonard Lance. That candidate is Tom Malinowski.

I'm a lifelong New Jersey resident -- including ...
