MILLBURN, NJ - The Boxcar Bar and Grill in Short Hills on Thursday evening was the scene of candidate Jodi Rosenberg’s final scheduled “Meet and Greet” event, which was well attended by current township committee members, supporters and even a few Democrats. Rosenberg greeted morning commuters earlier that day.
Shannon Aronson and Karin Lieber, both residents of Short Hills, sponsored the event with The Boxcar. The evening provided guests and commuters the opportunity to meet Rosenberg in the final days of her township committee campaign as Election Day nears. In Rosenberg’s previous events, she took time to formally discuss her positions on issues, share her vision for the future of Millburn and then engage in a question and answer session. This event was more casual, giving Rosenberg, and particularly commuters, the opportunity to meet the candidate informally and on one-on-one. Millburn’s Deputy Mayor Theodore “Ted” Bourke, Committee Members Ian Mount and Sandra Haimoff, as well as Millburn GOP Chairman Ray Lipps came out to also support their candidate.
Amongst the room full of Republicans, there were a few Democrats that came out to support Rosenberg. “While I’m a committed Democrat, all politics is local”, said Gary Potters of Millburn “and no disrespect to the other candidate, I believe Jodi is the best candidate. She’s [Rosenberg] done a lot for the community so I think she’ll be outstanding”.
