On September 12, 2010, supporters of Laine Maurer attended a barbeque at her house. Rainy weather didn't detract her many friends and neighbors from coming out in support of Laine's run for New Providence Council.
Laine is a first-time candidate "excited to be given this opportunity to serve her community." She said, "I believe I am a needed voice on council. I think what's missing from Council is someone like me - a woman and mother, an everyday person who lives in, is involved in, and volunteers in this community 24 hours, 7 days a week. Council is well-represented by lawyers and members of the business and finance community. But, there isn't anyone who can represent 'the rest of New Providence.' My mission is to bring families and community together in New Providence."
