1. Why are you running for re-election to the Piscataway Township council?

This year will be my third term as a councilman and I would like to continue to provide services that will enhance the greatness of Piscataway. I am an advocate of our seniors’ population, youth sports and cultures. This mindset has promoted Piscataway’s cultures and diversity programs, promoted health and wellness programs for our citizens and provided programs for youth without cost. I have learned during the past eight years to always be responsive to residents’ concerns and maintain good communications with all Piscataway citizens.

I have heard it said that I am retiring. This is not true. I have no plans to retire at this stage of life. My life style is great for me in this community.
