I Endorse Robbie Vargo for Cedar Grove Councilman


 Dear Editor,

I am writing in support of Robbie Vargo, to endorse his candidacy for Cedar Grove Town Council.

I have known Robbie since his days on his high school wrestling team, and when he went to Montclair State with my sons.   He has always been a respectful and kind young man and I continuously took notice of his strong work ethic and determination.

His resolve as a law student, lawyer, and consummate professional are perfect examples as to why he has all of the characteristics to succeed as a member of the Town Council. I believe he will continue to demonstrate strength of character, integrity, and compassion, as he has routinely shown this through his involvement in the Community and through various charitable causes.  Robbie is a supportive member of our Community and displays his generosity every year during the holidays when he entertains the families of Cedar Grove by decorating his house with over 35,000 Christmas lights for Toys For Tots. 

Robbie never hesitates to jump right in and volunteer when needed. I have seen his enthusiasm from high school, right up through his current involvement in Cedar Grove. Robbie is a voice for the residents of Cedar Grove, and has demonstrated this willingness when he fought against the Hilltop Development, volunteered to be on the Zoning Board, and co-founded Cedar Grove’s Downtown Advisory Committee (Discover Cedar Grove).

Most importantly, I would like to mention Robbie’s family life. He is a wonderful father and a supportive husband.  When his day is through, he takes the time to stop into Love, Laugh, Learn Child Care in Cedar Grove, where his wife Chelsea is the Owner and Director.  He takes time to visit with the children, demonstrating care and compassion at every turn. 

In my strong opinion, these qualities are the key components to being successful, and for these reasons Robbie Vargo has my continued support. Please join me this May by voting for Robbie Vargo as Councilman of Cedar Grove.
