Dear fellow Warren voters,
With Election Day (November 7th) almost upon us, we wanted to briefly outline our credentials as Warren Township Committeemen and ask that you reelect us for another term to serve you and all the residents of our great Town. We have served our Town for the past 5 plus years as Committeemen, each of us serving as Mayor, as well. We have been true to our core principle – to represent the Warren residents the best we can – and have fulfilled our promises to repair roads, be fiscally responsible, and maintain our farm-like character. While we have accomplished these goals and more, there is still much more for us to do. On November 7th, we respectfully ask for your vote.
We are honored to report that we have earned endorsements from two highly respected organizations, the Echoes-Sentinel Newspaper and the Warren Township P.B.A. Local 235. The Echoes reviewed all the candidates and chose to endorse us in this election, and the P.B.A.'s endorsement was the first one it ever issued. We wanted to share some of their words with you. "Since joining the committee they have proven themselves, more than anything, to be committed to the job and to taxpayers. Marion and Lazo are accessible and responsive to residents' concerns, and have been valuable assets to the committee.… In this election, … especially given what's at stake as it pertains to affordable housing, vote Marion and Lazo on Nov. 7." (Echoes)
"The Warren Township Police Department is undoubtedly in a better place since [Marion and Lazo] have been in office. ... For these reasons, the Warren Township PBA Local #235 has unanimously decided to endorse [Marion and Lazo] for re-election to the Warren Township Committee." (PBA) We are extremely proud of our public service in this Town and the recognition of our work by these well regarded institutions in their endorsements. You can find copies of their full endorsements in the Echoes October 26th and November 2nd publications and here: Marion & Lazo Endorsed by Warren Twp. P.B.A https://www.tapinto.net/towns/warren/articles/marion-and-lazo-endorsed-by-warren-twp-p-dot-b-a
Rest assured, we remain dedicated to managing development in our Town. As you may know, Warren, like all other towns in this State, is subject to fair-share housing claims that are making their way through the court system. As decade-long residents of this great rural Town, we have challenged Trenton-mandated housing requirements and continue to fight for fellow residents to try to manage our own housing goals locally. This is a time – more important than ever – that experienced leadership is needed for our Township on this issue. This is what we bring to the table on this critical issue, and we will continue to vigorously defend the small town character of Warren in which we have raised and continue to raise our families.
While you can find more about us at our website (https://vote-marion-lazo.com/), we wanted to highlight some of our primary goals going forward. We pledge to work on the following for the best interest of Warren Township and its residents by continuing to --
* Fight to manage Warren's fair-share housing obligations.
* Be fiscally responsible by maintaining our AAA bond rating &evaluating budget options.
* Review, improve, & evolve Township services that positivelyimpact each resident.
* Work closely with our Police, EMS, Fire & OEM to ensure our residents continue to be provided the safety and securityeach household and business has come to expect.
We have laid the groundwork for much of this already during the past five years, but have much
more to do. We will continue our efforts, as promised, to the best of our ability. With your vote on November 7th that will become a reality. We again, respectfully, ask for your vote on that day.
