Michael Birnberg, Candidate for Millburn Township Committee


MILLBURN, NJ - The following is a candidate statement from Michael Birnberg.

As a leader with deep family roots in Millburn/Short Hills, I was motivated to join this race as a candidate for the Township Committee to offer my experience and consensus building skills as we strive to move forward. You can count on me to maintain the high standards of professionalism and respect that our exceptional community deserves. I bring a common sense approach and a vision for the future.  It’s time to end the bickering and get down to business.

The lessons that I learned in my tenure on the Board of Education and the Zoning Board of Adjustment led to my increased interest in local government.  I consider my proven ability to hear your concerns, work with all stakeholders, foster teamwork and build a solution to be my strongest assets.

Specifically, my immediate and primary goals are three-fold:

(1)  Maintain our high Quality of Life standards utilizing smart development strategies;

(2)   Strengthen Code Enforcement for safety and stability in our neighborhoods;

(3)   Preserve our Community Assets by Investing in our Infrastructure.

We live in a great township, with a tremendous lifestyle and excellent schools.  As a result, there is significant demand to be part of our community.  However, unbridled development comes with a price.  We have to be smart about development and ensure that we address all concerns and potential consequences, such as traffic, density, safety and burgeoning school populations to retain our residential neighborhoods.

I am confident that my unique combination of talents, coupled with my demonstrated interpersonal and leadership capabilities, will prove to be a valuable asset as a member of the Township Committee.

Meanwhile, I am having fun and enjoying the challenge of discussing issues with you that comes with being a candidate for Township Committee.
