Former Fanwood Councilmen Are Proud to Vote for Huegel and Carter


Dear Editor:

Ask almost anyone in Fanwood and they'll tell you the same thing; this truly is an incredible place to live. Time and time again, publications throughout the state and around the region have cited the incredible quality of life as a reason to call Fanwood home. We couldn't agree more.

Each of us proudly served our neighbors on the Fanwood Borough Council for many years. We know what a rewarding experience...and a challenging task it can be. That's why we're proud that voters this year have two outstanding choices in Councilman Russ Huegel and Anthony "Coach" Carter.

Russ Huegel has been an outstanding member of the Borough Council for the last 9 years. In that time, he has worked tirelessly for our residents. He has played a critical role in bringing curbside recycling to our town. He's held the line on property taxes by controling spending through the use of shared services with our neighbors in Scotch Plains and Garwood. Russ has also been a leading voice in the downtown redevelopment plan that has brought in-demand housing units online and allowed new residents to live and shop right in the heart of Fanwood.

Anthony "Coach" Carter has been proudly serving the residents of Fanwood for 16 years. Parents throughout our town know him as someone who has helped shape the lives of thousands of our children through his work in a wide variety of recreation programs. If you have raised kids in Fanwood, odds are Anthony has touched your lives in some way. We know that if he's given the chance to serve on Council, he can do even more for the place we all call home.

Although each of us ran as Republicans, we know that dedication to one's community knows no party. On November 7th, we will be proud to cast our votes for Russ Huegel and Anthony "Coach" Carter for Fanwood Borough Council. We strongly urge you to join us.

Why We Keep Kosher

Why We Keep Kosher

This week's parshah, Shemini, introduces the Torah's dietary laws. Animals must chew their cud and have split hooves to be kosher, fish need fins and scales, and a list of forbidden fowl is enumerated.

To those of us in Jewish education, it is a continuing source of disappointment that so many Jews still believe the kosher laws to be outdated.

Politics IS Government in Union County

April 21, 2018

Dear Editor:

After Bruce Patterson of Garwood was stopped from speaking at the Union County Freeholder meeting of March 22 regarding the politics behind refusing to give the party line to a sitting Freeholder, I thought this brazen suppression of free speech could not go unanswered.

At the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.

After ten years of following government in Union ...
