I’m writing in support for Don Elting’s candidacy for Cedar Grove Town Council.   I am proud to have called Don my friend for the past 32+ years, ever since we were in homeroom together in Bloomfield’s South Junior High School. Don’s leadership skills were apparent for as long as I’ve known him.  He is always the first person to step up and help out a friend or family member in a time of need, no matter the situation.  One thing I could say with certainty is that Don is a person that you could always count on.  

Our family moved to Cedar Grove 7+ years ago, and we have Don to thank for that decision.  His family was already living in town for a few years, and they always told us how great of a community it was.   Moving to Cedar Grove turned out to be the absolute best decision for our family.  We have embraced the town and are actively involved as volunteers.  I have been the Cubmaster and Den Leader with Cedar Grove Pack 2 for the past 6 years, and I am also involved as a coach in the CG Baseball league. 

Don’s commitment to the town is shown though his volunteerism at St Catherine of Siena, Memorial Middle School Clothing drives and as a coach for both CG Youth Softball and Floor Hockey to name a few.  In his professional life, Don is a true leader and someone I look up to.  He has been the Director of Operations at Hackensack Radiology for the past 12 years.  In this position, Don manages 3 radiology locations, with over 150 employees under his direction.   Don is also a very dedicated family man, with 2 girls in the Cedar Grove school system and a step-son that recently graduated from Cedar Grove High School.

Don came to me a few years back when he first considered running for town council.  He was concerned that a pro-active plan was not in place for the pending population increase, and that we would be scrambling once it became a reality.  Don is fiscally a conservative individual and someone that is always willing to listen to new ideas that would benefit Cedar Grove.  He is also extremely focused on preserving the town’s remaining precious open space.  While he’s not running as part of a “team”, you can be rest assured that he will be on the side of the citizens of Cedar Grove.

Please join me in voting for Don Elting (Line 2A) on May 9th.
