SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ - The South Plainfield Democrat Committee has unanimously endorsed Sandy Cooper Doyon for Mayor. Kristine Keefe and Sherri Zwerko were also unanimously endorsed for Borough Council.
Sandy Doyon, a lifetime resident of the borough embodies what South Plainfield is all about. She has been an elementary teacher at Kennedy School for 25 years. Sandy and her husband Tom are the owners of “Cooper’s Office Furniture”. Sandy and Tom, along with their late son Tommy, are famous for their NY Giants Bus in the Labor Day parade. The Doyons have been involved with many community projects in town, and are proud to support scholarship programs for SPHS seniors. She will make us proud as South Plainfield’s first woman Mayor.
Sandy is joined on the ticket by two other intelligent, focused women. Kristine Keefe has been a teacher at J.P.Stevens High School in Edison for 17 years. She is a graduate of New York University with a degree in Spanish and Linguistics. Kristine is recognized for her expertise in technology as evidenced by her being a presenter at numerous regional conferences. She and her husband Tamer have two children, Sofia and Dean.
The other member of the Democrat team is Sherri Zwerko. Sherri has served as a Democrat committee member for nearly a decade. She is a graduate of Thomas Edison University and owns her own pet sitting business known as Comfy Critters. She and her husband Kevin have been happily married for two years.
Mayoral candidate Sandy Doyon commented “I can’t wait for the campaign to begin. Kristine, Sherri and I have a detailed plan to revitalize our borough. It seems that those who are in control are unaware of the challenges facing our taxpayers. Our property values are stagnant, borrowing is out of control, there are vacant stores all over town, our roads are falling apart and trucks are invading our neighborhoods.”
Council candidate Kristine Keefe agreed with the future Mayor saying “Sandy and I are teachers. Programs for our young people are our primary concern. Over the last eight years virtually nothing has been done to improve our parks and recreation program. That will be my first priority after I am sworn in as a member of the Borough Council.”
Council candidate Sherri Zwerko brings a business focus to the ticket. She expanded on her running mates comments: “ I live in what is called ‘the center of town’. Are those in control even aware of what is happening? It is scary to navigate Front Street when two tractor trailers are going in opposite directions. There is no vision concerning the empty buildings and dying businesses. It’s time to bring some common sense business acumen to the borough council.”
The candidates look forward to discussing their platform of positive change with their fellow residents.
