To the Editor:


I am writing to encourage friends and neighbors to elect Sheena Collum as our Village President on Tuesday, May 14th. A few months ago, I had the honor of being asked to volunteer as Sheena’s campaign manager. I immediately agreed  because I truly believe Sheena has been, and will continue to be, the best choice to lead South Orange.


Over my 13 years as a resident of South Orange and as a former local small business owner, current volunteer, and active community member, I have had the opportunity to work with Sheena on various projects and committees. I have been consistently amazed at her work ethic, her deep understanding of community (and state and national) issues, her ability to engage with residents and her enthusiasm. Sheena is available, approachable, and genuine in her passion for this Village.

In just a few short years, Sheena has managed to create an outstanding record of working for South Orange and producing results. I encourage residents to visit her website,, to appreciate her accomplishments in areas such as financial management, development and redevelopment, open space, and senior services to name but a few, and to understand her vision for the future of our village. Quite simply, Sheena Collum is a proven leader.


Most importantly, every vote counts, especially in local elections, so  I urge all voters to please get to the polls on Tuesday, May 14th and to join me in casting a vote for Sheena Collum for South Orange Village President.
