HAWTHORNE, NJ - Hawthorne resident Craig Cayetano announced to TAPinto Hawthorne that he has filed at the Passaic County Administration Building to run as a Green Party candidate for the Ward 3 Council. The statement reads below.
Hello everyone! I’m so excited to announce that I have filed to run for Hawthorne Town Council in Ward 3. I have been a resident of Hawthorne for almost 15 years. Last fall I decided to join the Hawthorne Green Team and help the town in any way possible. I’m very proud of my continued work there and proud of the work that the Environmental Commission has done as well. But I still feel compelled to do more for my ward and town.
I decided to run as a Green Party Candidate, independent of the two main political parties and will focus on people, planet and peace over profit.
- People - I want to hear from each person in my ward. There are many homeowners and renters with issues that feel they have no advocate for them. Our community is constantly evolving and we need to work together to forge relationships with each and every one of us.
- Planet - I’ve been environmentally conscious since my teens and am constantly involved with county and state activism on the behalf of protecting the resources here in New Jersey. There are still areas of unresolved environmental impact in town that truly need to be addressed.
- Peace - As a Green I will work to be a bridge between the other major parties. Greens can work with others objectively and can put “party” aside for the best of the community. My sole focus is to be an advocate for my ward and elevate the voices here that may not ordinarily be heard.
- Over Profit - As a Green who is Independent of the other two parties I don’t have to “toe a party line”. I don’t have to waver on what I feel compelled to support. I also won’t be beholding to big corporate donors, developers or special interests.
I am grateful for the response I’ve had already from my community and look forward to doing my best to win this fall. I truly want to be an advocate for everyone. Thank-you all!
