RANDOLPH, NJ- David Timpanaro is a candidate for Randolph Township Council and is asking for your support this November, 2020. David previously ran for Township Council in 2018 and for Morris County Freeholder in 2019.
Dave lives in Randolph with his wife of 12 years and their 7-year-old son. Dave and his wife Lia are local business owners, operating an agency that provides children and families with in-home behavioral and mental health counseling. Dave has worked with children in the field of Human Services for almost 20 years.
Dave has continued to be a major volunteer in Randolph and enjoys the time spent helping out. He is a registered coach for Randolph Recreation Sports and has coached baseball, soccer, flag football, and basketball. Dave was appointed by the Randolph Township Council to the Randolph Municipal Alliance Committee (MAC) where he remains an active member, and to the Recreation Committee where he served a one-year term. Dave is also an active member of the Randolph Baseball Committee.
Dave received his BA in Psychology from Rutgers University. He received his Master of Science in Human Services from Capella University, and will complete his PhD as a Doctor of Human Services through Capella later this year. His extensive experience in the multidisciplinary model has prepared him to develop working models and teams made up of multiple entities to work towards the same goal. Dave hopes to contribute even more to the community that has given him so much by representing you on the Township Council.
Born and raised in Livingston, Joshua Weiner is a New Jersey native through and through. Josh got his start in politics while earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry at Rutgers, New Brunswick. He volunteered as both a student representative and as a member of the executive board of the Rutgers College Governing Association. Josh went on to earn his law degree from Hofstra University in 2006.
Josh relocated back to Morris County right after graduation, with his then-fiancée Carrie. Once their children were born, Josh and his wife Carrie moved to Randolph, where Corrine and Gavin could attend wonderful public schools and grow up in the ideal suburban community.
Josh is a partner with the law firm Coughlin Duffy LLP in Morristown, where he chairs the firm’s Labor and Employment Law Group. His love of the law and passion for justice and civic participation drove him to get involved in his community when he moved to Randolph. As a Township Council candidate in 2018, and a current member of the Township’s Municipal Alliance Committee, Josh has gotten to know and understand the concerns of members of the community, and it has further reinforced his understanding of the importance of civic participation and leadership. That sense of responsibility is what informs Josh’s goal to become your Township Councilman.
Josh believes that open government is the hallmark of democracy, and that local government should always strive to seek input and feedback from all of its citizens, regardless of their party affiliation or political philosophy. If elected, Josh’s goal is to work together with all Randolph residents to effect positive change in the Township and its governance.
Like millions of Americans, Randolph Township Candidate Jeanette Hernandez first got seriously involved in politics during the last four years. She got right to work on the local level just as soon as she, her husband Mario, and their son moved to Randolph three years ago, because she wanted to make a meaningful contribution to the community they had so carefully chosen. She was elected as a District Chair in 2018, currently serves as Secretary for the Randolph Township Democratic Committee, and has campaigned tirelessly for candidates on all levels of government.
Jeanette has dedicated her life to public service. She spent nearly a decade volunteering 60-plus hours a month for one of the busiest EMS squads in the state. She earned her nursing degree from Seton Hall University while still working in pharmaceutical market research. Jeanette then spent nearly another decade in the emergency department, at both urban Level I Trauma and suburban community hospitals. As a case manager and patient navigator she coordinated care and resources across interdisciplinary teams, before eventually transitioning to outpatient care. She and her son have enjoyed volunteering with the Community Food Bank of NJ for the last several years.
As a nurse, Jeanette always looks for solutions based on evidence and measurable results. She believes that “we’ve always just done it that away” is never an acceptable answer. As a first-generation American and middle-class working mom, she strongly believes that real democracy thrives through inclusion and diversity, that innovation and progress require a healthy competition of ideas, and that government better serves the people when there is increased transparency and accountability.
Jeanette Hernandez firmly believes the time is right for Randolph to move forward. While her involvement in the community has given her a solid understanding of its needs, her fresh perspective as a newer resident is a welcome contrast to the same-old-same-old business as usual. Jeanette knows how to manage tough situations and deliver creative solutions to difficult problems. She is eager to serve her community as a member of the Township Council, and asks for your support on Election Day this November.
