SPRINGFIELD, NJ — Jeff Rosenberg, a 27 year resident of Springfield, officially launched his candidacy for Springfield Township Committee. Rosenberg is running as an Independent, which is why voters did not see his name on the June primary ballots.

On his decision not to be affiliated with a recognized political party, Rosenberg explained, "This is our local town, it’s not the federal government. The issues are not abortion, immigration, healthcare and social security. Our issues are downtown redevelopment, turf fields, traffic patterns, property taxes and recreational facilities. On the local level, party politics are irrelevant.  They need to be avoided."  He continued, "I’m just a resident who cares about my town and wants to help as best I can."

His campaign slogan is NO PARTY POLITICS.

Along the lines of being an unconventional candidate, he is trying to break the norm in other ways too. He promises not to seek any resident financing through fundraisers or donation solicitations. He also promises to avoid electioneering and to not litter the town with signs. Throughout his campaign, ideas will be expressed through his Facebook page, Jeff Rosenberg – Candidate for Township Committee.  On his site Rosenberg hopes the town’s residents will post questions and concerns and be able to have better and more meaningful discussions.

Rosenberg spent over 25 years in a career in media marketing.  A good portion of that time was at the senior management level in various Vice President positions. Then in 2009, he joined his wife, owner of Century 21 Norma Altman Realtors based out of Main St. in Millburn. He attained his NJ real estate salesperson’s license, followed by his broker’s license, followed by an Instructor’s license.

In the real estate business, Rosenberg helped many Springfield residents buy, sell or lease their homes over the years.  As an Instructor at the Professional School of Business in Millburn he taught and helped many local residents attain their license.

Rosenberg is also volunteers in various capacities. Each month he helps out the Springfield Seniors as they celebrate their monthly Birthday Bash. Another activity he enjoys with Seniors is calling Bingo on a regular basis.

During SuperStorm Sandy, he and his wife spent ten days at Chisholm Center, helping those who lost power and needed a place to stay and food to eat. He’s been a long time member of the Springfield Patriot Chamber of Commerce and has been a past member of the Springfield Zoning Board of Adjustments. Additional volunteer work includes being a member of both the Association of Realtors’ statewide and regional Professional Standards Committees. In those roles, he helps adjudicate claims brought mostly on ethics violations. Jeff Rosenberg and his wife Hope raised their 2 children in town.  Both kids have gone on to graduate from universities with honors. Jeff and Hope were always involved in Little League, soccer, basketball, parades and Help Clean the Park Day.

His concluding statement was, "Springfield was, and still is, a great town to raise a family, and now I have the time and ability to give back."   His calls himself "An unconventional candidate in many respects."
