Support for Robbie Vargo


I am writing to you to convey my support for Robbie Vargo, who is running for a position on the Town Council of Cedar Grove.

I met Robbie nearly 10 years ago when they first moved in to their home on Union Street.  We introduced ourselves and Robbie and his wife Chelsea could not have been more friendly and engaging.  You felt as if you knew them for years and they were such a great addition to our block.  There wasn’t anything we couldn’t ask of Robbie; he was always willing to help in any way.

He was interested immediately in what the town had to offer to its residents and was happy to hear of the various activities that my children were involved in.   He always listened with great eagerness to their stories and showed that he was truly engaged in their conversations.  He voiced his opinion against the Hilltop, volunteered on the Zoning Board and co-founded Cedar Grove’s Downtown Advisory Board, all while keeping Cedar Grove’s best interest at the top.

There was an immediate comfort that you felt when you were with Robbie and his wife Chelsea. What has impressed me is the Toys for Tots drive that they run each year to help underprivileged children during Christmas time. I am sure you have read in the paper or heard by word of mouth the incredible display of lights that precedes this event which takes months to set up.  This is such a selfless act and every year without hesitation he continues to build a masterpiece so those children could experience some joy.

He is not only a great neighbor, but an amazing husband to his wife Chelsea and a fabulous dad to his 3 beautiful boys. This role, I believe, is his best.  He is constantly involved with his family as well as the community, always trying to make things the best they can be.  He was a very big support during my husband’s illness and still remains so after his passing.  That shows his ultimate character and compassion and that is something that cannot be fabricated. You either have those qualities or you don’t and I am here to say, he certainly does!

For these reasons and many more, please join me this May by voting for Robbie Vargo as Councilman of Cedar Grove.


Thank you,


Janice Fearon
