Dear Denville Residents,

Great things are happening in Denville!  And have been for the past eight years!

Trails, turf fields, river flood mitigation, low taxes, downtown streetscape project and the new Valley View firehouse are just to name a few.  Moody’s double Aa1 bond rating, 9.5 million in total grants and a reduction in the general debt by 13.85 percent.

Mayor Tom Andes has been instrumental in making these things happen. Tom is one of the most dedicated public servants I have had the pleasure to work with over this past decade. His commitment and devotion to all of Denville in unparalleled. He is a true friend to all, loyal and kind with a work ethic that is incomparable. 

He rose to the occasion after Hurricane Irene, while on the town council, before being elected Mayor. He gathered us together and with hundreds of volunteers, getting Denville back on its feet was the mission. The creation of “Denville up and Running Hurricane Relief”, Band-aid on Broadway and other fundraising efforts totaled over $500,000 in donations. Those funds were dispersed to Denville residents and businesses affected by Hurricane Irene. When Denville was at it’s most vulnerable Mayor Andes was there for us. He is there for every citizen of Denville, the young, the elderly, families and children, regardless of political affiliation.

The Mayor and council have been fierce in their commitment to responsible budgets, keeping taxes as low as possible without sacrificing the wonderful services that our town offers. In 2016, the town budget was passed with a 25-cent decrease, and in the three years after taxes have been kept to a modest increase between $27 - $30 per household. Mayor Andes has given 100% to the town of Denville for the past 25 years and will continue to give 100% for the next four.

Tax stabilization, downtown revitalization, safe schools and fiscal responsibility. Let’s keep those things going in Denville! Don’t take a chance, take a stand. Together let’s vote for the future, not the past. Please re-elect Tom Andes for Mayor of Denville.

With Gratitude,

Stephanie Lyden
