New Providence Republican Committee Elects New Chair

New Providence Republican Committee elects Linda Kale as New Chair.
NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - The New Providence Republican Committee has elected Linda Kale as their new Chairman. Kale, a New Providence resident since 1968, brings a decorated resume including active involvement with the New Providence Lions and President of the New Providence Historical Society.  
 
Kale said, "I am so honored and happy for the opportunity to promote and share republican values and ideals with our community. New Providence is such a wonderful, close knit, and well run place thanks to all the hard work and dedication of our elected officials, Mayor Al Morgan, Council President Michael Gennaro, our Borough Council Members, and all of our many volunteers who tirelessly contribute.  I am proud to be at the helm of our Republican Committee with so many great people around me. We are a small community where every vote matters, every idea matters, and every contribution matters."  
 
Kale is a life long Republican, actively voting and supporting Republican candidates and initiatives for all of her voting life.
 
"I love my party and I love this community," Kale shared.
 

Kale is the mother of six children, all raised and educated in New Providence. Two of her sons honorably served in our military in the US Marine Corps; one is still on active duty serving as a Major.
 
"New Providence has given so much to my family and to me. I love our community and want to give back," Kale added.
 
Mayor Al Morgan is delighted by the committee's choice. "Linda is a highly valued member of our community. I have known and worked closely with Linda for years on many committees and projects.  She's great. Linda is dedicated and a true pleasure to work with.  Her energy and pioneer spirit is refreshing and contagious. I know she will do a great job. I look forward to working with her in her new role." 
 
"While everyone has different views of what being a Republican is", Kale stated, "I believe Republicans stand for small government, fiscal responsibility, and personal responsibility. It's a message of family and fiscal values which we strongly embrace in New Providence no matter what your party affiliation. I look forward to working closely with our community in a spirit of unity and inclusivity for the betterment of New Providence. I welcome everyone to join us."
