To the Editor,

New Providence is a wonderful town, but it needs to be more affordable. It needs to work on sustainability and be more openly inclusive. People who work here, such as teachers, fire fighters, police officers and retailers, cannot afford to live here because real estate is so expensive. We need to put real effort into providing more affordable housing so those working in our community can afford to live here too.

New Providence, like every town in America, must also do its part to protect the environment and become a more sustainable community. We can install solar panels, ban plastic bags, and educate our residents about how they can live sustainably.

Finally, we need to make it clear that New Providence is a community of diverse cultures and all are welcome here.

With his experience and dedication, I strongly believe that John FX Keane will work toward these goals. Let’s elect him to Borough Council on November 5th.
