FANWOOD, NJ - Supporters of Fanwood Democratic council candidates Dan Levine and Jack Molenaar packed Nick's Pizza and Deli on Martine Avenue the evening of September 20th for a pizza party fundraiser. A $40 donation got visitors all they could eat pizza, subs and salads, plus beer and wine.

More importantly, supporters got to chat with Dan and Jack about life in Fanwood and some of our challenges ahead. Mayor Colleen Mahr, who is also Fanwood's Democratic Chairperson, did a pitch for getting out the vote on November 6th, a sentiment echoed by Jamar Tyndale, Union County's representative for the Obama Presidential Campaign.

Having suffered unbearably under successive oppressive regimes, many of those political activists genuinely thought communism would be better ...
