My name is Sherry Flaherty and it is my pleasure to support Nadine Geoffroy and Bob Robinson for Borough Council.
My husband and I are long-time residents of New Providence. We have lived here for over 20 years and have watched the town grow into the wonderful place it is today, thanks to the work of Bob Robinson and members of the Borough Council. During those 20 years, we raised twin boys and made the most of every chance to be involved in town developments. We are very pleased with the many updates and improvements in New Providence. Our sons have benefitted from the new basketball courts near the community pool, as well as the renovations of the fields. We feel safe raising our family here and enjoy the strong community that is New Providence.
These are just some of the reasons that I support Bob Robinson for re-election to Borough Council. I know that he was instrumental in carrying out the many improvements in town. His strong sense of community and continuously looking for ways improve our quality of life are keys to being a strong Councilman. I feel he is there to represent all of our citizens.
I became involved with the PTO’s of the elementary and middle schools. It was during the time of my PTO Presidency at the middle school (2014-2016) that I met Nadine Geoffroy. Nadine was our treasurer, and we worked very closely together. I am very well acquainted with her and her abilities. We were responsible for budgets and expense review, as well as organizing and holding events for the students and staff. We had a very successful tenure, adding several new events and improving many existing events. I was impressed with Nadine’s ability to organize our financial data, work through issues with the people involved, and to suggest new and better ways to do things. Some of these include co-creating our “No Fundraiser-Fundraiser”, implementing a better audit program, and establishing a better way to analyze of our funds and expenses.
Our goal was to make Middle School a special time for our kids, and we did just that. In addition to her own responsibilities, Nadine was always ready to help wherever needed. She is a strong team member who ALWAYS helped get any job done, and done well.
These are some of the reasons that I support Nadine Geoffroy for Borough Council. I believe she will use her interpersonal, organizational, and analytical skills to help our town achieve its goals. I am proud to have worked with her and even prouder to call her my friend.
In my opinion, Bob Robinson and Nadine Geoffroy have already helped make New Providence a great place to live and will continue to do so as Council members.
