My friends, family and colleagues know me as a driven, fair-minded and considerate person. I take a can-do approach to every problem with solution in mind. I love people and this town. I am passionate about serving others and giving every effort to succeed…  it’s the way I was raised...  Others before self!

We all cherish Glen Rock, because of its great schools, highly competitive athletics, engaged senior citizens and a charming center of town… all of which make Glen Rock so appealing.  But to me it’s the people of this town that have made it so special.

In this next 90 minutes (during the debate) those who don’t know me will learn more about me.  I’m proud to be a positive representative of the things I hold dear.  

I feel blessed to have this opportunity and with your support, look forward to serving you as a councilperson.

I want to thank the League of Women Voters for hosting this important event and for all of you that are here or are watching.

I thank all the candidates who have put themselves on the front line for our town. I wish each and every one nothing but the best and good luck on November 5th.

I want to thank my wife Jennifer, “my ROCK” for her support! Always there to advise and counsel, holding me accountable yet always loving me. 

I would be remiss if I didn’t thank my children Eric, Matthew, Gregory and Sophia. They represent me and the entire Schlett family in all they do. They are my life’s work and my greatest blessing.

I care about Glen Rock, which is why I am running. 

Meeting with Glen Rockers through the last several months I have heard loud, and clear…  focus on local issues! 

Issues like: 

  • Funding our exceptional schools
  • Ensuring fields are safe and playable
  • Attending to concerns of our Seniors
  • And addressing public safety volunteerism

I will fight for the priorities you hold dear while being transparent, exhausting every effort to save money without compromising the assets of our town.

Negative national politics have frustrated us and polarized our community. These issues are  a distraction from attending to the things that must get done at a local level and seemingly serve selfish interests.

It’s healthy to have different perspectives yet being respectful of varied opinions. I will work with concerned Glen Rockers to bring those values back to the forefront of this great town. 

We are committed to do things differently in Glen Rock starting the day we take office!  This is my commitment to you. Our residents deserve the best from their elected officials. I am ready to represent ALL Glen Rockers. 

Let’s unify Glen Rock!

I am ready to represent you on town council, but I can’t do this alone…we need your vote for ALL 3 of us:  Ohri, Torpey and Schlett!
