Thank you for your VOTE!
This past Tuesday evening, November 3rd, at about 8:30pm, I learned that I had been elected to the At-Large seat on the Summit Common Council. Feelings of gratitude and appreciation were overwhelming as I realized that, with a lot of help from my family and friends, I had won this hard-fought election against my very worthy opponent, Andy Lark.
I want to thank all of you who took the time to listen to my concerns about Summit's skyrocketing taxes, need for greater transparency in city government, growing pattern of over-development, condition of our downtown, and the need to work harder and smarter to bring back our dollars from Union County. Your vote for me affirmed that you share these concerns and believe that my election will make a difference. I promise to work as hard as I can on behalf of each and every resident of Summit - from our youngest to our oldest and most coveted senior Hilltoppers.
I also want to thank my running mate, Laura Graff Coburn, the Ward 2 candidate, for her extraordinary efforts in our "putting community first" campaign.
Finally, I offer my congratulations to Nuris Portuondo and Rich Madden for their respective elections to the Ward 1 and Ward 2 Council seats. I look forward to working with them as well as with all of the members of Council and Mayor Jordan Glatt.
Please know that I am always available to you, and welcome your calls and emails. Thank you again for your vote.
