This is the first article in a multiple part series on the Millburn Township Committee elections on Nov. 3.  Jodi Rosenberg, the Republican nominee, and Diane Eglow, the Democratic nominee, are the candidates running for office.

MILLBURN, NJ - Jodi Rosenberg secured the Republican nomination during the 2015 May primaries and will be the party’s candidate for a seat on Millburn’s Township Committee. The five-member committee will have one seat vacant, as current Committeewoman Sandra Haimoff will not seek another term.

Rosenberg graduated magna cum laude from the University of Michigan and then earned a law degree from Boston University. She practiced law in New Jersey and New York for large firms beginning in 1993 and in 2009 opened her own practice. Her office is located in downtown Millburn.

She has called Short Hills her home for nearly 20 years, raising her three children with her husband Daniel, while working and volunteering her time to organizations like Workmoms, where she currently serves as their president. Additionally, she has served on Millburn’s Community Service Award and the Citizen’s Budget Advisory Committees.  She has two children, Brandon and Jordan, attending the high school and daughter Syndey at the middle school.  In addition to supporting several community groups, she enjoys acting, contributing articles to legal journals and frequently lectures for the New Jersey State Bar Association. Her son Brandon once said, “My mom has more extracurricular activities than I do.”

When it comes to town issues, some of Rosenberg’s primary concerns are public safety, traffic and township communications. Noting that during peak times Millburn’s downtown is highly congested, her concern is for the general welfare of all pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. She believes the present conditions are not satisfactory.  Her near term solution is to have more police presence, particularly when students are present.  In line with her safety concerns is the amount of car traffic and antiquated throughways in town. 

The current streets do not attract people to “shop at our businesses or eat at our restaurants,” said Rosenberg. Transparency of town government actions is also a top of mind issue for Rosenberg. She believes that residents are not well informed as they could be. Technologies currently exist to allow for better communications but are not used.  “We are a plugged-in town,” commented Rosenberg, “I want to make sure that our town is vested in our own technologies.”

“ It’s not about politics but our town.” Rosenberg commented when asked how much politics and party loyalties could play in the upcoming elections.  “My husband is a registered Democrat.  I have many friends who are Democrats and unaffiliated who support me.”  She emphasized that people should vote for the individual regardless of Party affiliation and urge that people should do what’s “best for Millburn."
