I am writing to support Robbie Vargo, whom I believe would be a tremendous asset to our community, in his candidacy for Cedar Grove Town Councilman.

My husband and I have been residents of Cedar Grove for about 15 years, and we have known Robbie for just as long- not just as family, but as a loyal friend. In the years my husband and I have spent in Cedar Grove, we have rebuilt our home, are raising our two children, and support the community in many ways. We are invested in Cedar Grove and in its future. With that said, my endorsement for Robbie Vargo for Councilman comes with my whole-hearted support.

Watching Robbie set and reach his goals throughout the years has no doubt strengthened my faith in his ability to achieve whatever he puts his mind to. When there is something to get done, he is the man you want in your corner. He is ambitious, energetic, and has a wonderful perspective when it comes to matters of our community and business.

For as long as I’ve known Robbie, he has always spoke about settling in Cedar Grove. He loved this town even before he moved here, so it was no surprise when I learned he was running for Town Council. Since purchasing their house almost a decade ago, the Vargo family has made Cedar Grove their home and continue to plant their roots in our neighborhoods.

Robbie is more than just a resident of Cedar Grove; he is the heart of it. His passion and desire to keep finding ways to grow and improve our community are immense. Robbie is a wonderful family man, a successful lawyer, a humanitarian, and an overall good guy. In the years Robbie has lived in Cedar Grove, he has delved into projects that work toward the betterment of our town and its residents. He has immersed himself in all things “CG” as a co-founder of the Cedar Grove Downtown Advisory Committee (which focuses on making downtown Cedar Grove a safe and inviting destination to dine, shop, and enjoy all that Cedar Grove has to offer) and as an active member on the Cedar Grove Zoning Board.

Robbie has also been a resonating voice that fights to protect our town’s open space. He stood against the Hilltop Development, and more recently against the proposed train station that would disrupt our quiet neighborhoods and bring unnecessary commuter traffic to our small hometown. In addition to working to keep Cedar Grove a safe and vibrant community for its taxpayers, Robbie also finds time to care for even the youngest of our residents. He volunteers his time and talent to coach and mentor the youth of our community through support of our recreational and school activities. He also donates his time, money, and home to raise awareness and gifts for the charity, “Toys for Tots,” and in 2015, he and his wife jointly opened a child care facility in our town, Love, Laugh, Learn.

Robbie is a smart, reliable businessman who has the heart and smile of the boy next door. He is the perfect candidate to be entrusted with the seat and responsibilities of Councilman in Cedar Grove. Please join me in supporting Robbie Vargo for Cedar Grove Town Council. He is the candidate who will dedicate himself to ALL of our residents, who will work to keep Cedar Grove the wonderful small town we chose to reside in, and he will continue to find ways to make our neighborhood flourish.
