I’ve been a member of the Hasbrouck Heights community for the past 20 years, along with my husband, Kyle, and our daughter, Morgan. We are proud of this community and grateful for all that it has offered us. Our suburban landscape with a view of the New York City skyline makes our town one of the most treasured in New Jersey.
That’s why I am running for Borough Council – to ensure that our community remains one of the best places to raise a family.
As an attorney for the past 25 years, I’ve helped victims of domestic violence and clients navigating the complicated family court system. I’ve worked in the Mediation Unit at the office of the New Jersey Attorney General. The key to successful mediation is listening and collaborating. As a member of the Borough Council, I’ll do the same – listen to you, my neighbors, and work with you to improve our community.
I’ve always worked to be solutions-oriented, focused on a positive outcome. I served on the Bergen County Advisory Committee on Disabilities, helping improve access for all across Bergen County’s many services. I always run my practice with integrity and respect for all persons involved, receiving commendations from the New Jersey Senate and Assembly and Bergen County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
I’m ready to bring my solutions-oriented approach to Borough Hall.
Through including more people in the governing process and providing more opportunity for input, we can work together to find the best possible solutions for our Borough. By forming a Parking, Pedestrian, and Paving Committee we can analyze our parking challenges and put together a plan of action – one that keeps our ordinance banning overnight parking intact. With a little more creativity, we can find ways to save us all money, such as an energy aggregation program that uses the power of bulk purchasing to save you money on your home electric bill. These are common sense solutions that make our town an even better place to live.
Our Council has become far too divisive, focused on appeasing factions instead of making decisions based on the interests of our entire community. Something as simple as receiving approval to expand your driveway has become a political game, with arbitrary rejections that have led to distrust in the process. I know Heights can do better, and I promise to be a leading voice of reason and accountability.
I ask for your vote on November 5th with the guarantee that I will be a voice for you on the Borough Council. A voice for protecting and improving our community. A voice for the future generations who will call Hasbrouck Heights home. Please join me at the polls from 6am-8pm and support Christopher Hillmann for Mayor and Rudy R. Baez for Council as well.
I am ready to lead our community towards a more prosperous future, one that we can all be proud of.
