My name is Sharon Winnick and I am running for Raritan Township Committee. For me this election is about the future of our community and one of the major issues facing the residents of Raritan Township is uncontrolled growth.
In the year 2000 the population in Raritan township was 19,809. By 2010 that number had ballooned to 22,185 and remains there today. That amounts to 589.7 people per square mile. 2.7 persons per family. Look what population growth has done to our roads and the traffic on Route 202 and Route 31. Tired of sitting in traffic? Vote for “smart growth”.
We need development but we need smart development. We need growth but we need smart growth. We need someone to say enough is enough. When elected to the Township Committee I will be your voice and approach this issue of growth and push the Committee to develop a realistic plan for growth and development. Together, you and I, will work for the residents, all the residents, to control the growth. By controlling growth. we can reduce traffic and traffic jams and we can maintain the roads and keep them in good condition
Together We Can Make a Change
Let’s make Raritan Township a Community for all the residents
