Candidate to focus on Local Development and Community Safety in Debate

SHORT HILLS, NJAgnes Sym, Republican nominee for Millburn Township Committee, says responsible development in the Township of Millburn, ensuring the safety of all community residents and revitalizing downtown are the three priorities she expects to debate with fellow candidates on October 24.

“My husband and I moved our family to Short Hills five years ago because of its excellent schools and its small-town character. We immediately immersed ourselves in becoming active members of the community and learning about the benefits and challenges the township is facing, principally, over-development and decisions that have a negative impact on the livability of our town and the safety of our residents” Sym said.

Sym will join other Township Committee candidates on October 24 at 7:30pm at the Board of Education Center to debate high-density residential development plans and other issues impacting Millburn Township ahead of the November 5 election.  

“As a dedicated problem-solver, I believe all issues can be resolved if we come together as a community to listen to the facts, options, and viewpoints and arrive at solutions that serve the best interests of everyone.  The future of Millburn is not a partisan issue—it is a community issue and we must be proactive in achieving positive outcomes that improve our daily lives,” Sym concluded.

Sym, an attorney working in the financial services industry, and her husband, Commander Jonathan Sym (U.S. Navy), are the parents of two children.  Sym is active in the Glenwood PTO as well as other organizations operated by local volunteers.
