Dear Editor,

My name is Maureen “Moe” Durr. I am a lifelong resident of Caldwell and a lifelong Republican. I am writing to tell you about why I am supporting Frank Rodgers for Mayor, and Susan Vezza and Steve Flack for Council.

I’ve been involved with the Republican Party since before I was old enough to vote. I have deep ties to the community here in Caldwell. I was the Chair of the Caldwell Republican Party in the 1980’s and have maintained an active voice in local politics ever since. My husband was a 33-year member of the Caldwell Police Department and Chief of Police for his last eight years on the force. I am also a life member on the West Essex First Aid Squad. I love Caldwell and care deeply about its future.

I believe strongly in fiscal responsibility and I believe in lean and efficient government. That is why I believe in Frank Rodgers, Susan Vezza and Steve Flack.

I’ve known Frank Rodgers for many years and have come to know Susan and Steve more recently and I know that they share the same values as I do, but more importantly, I know that they have the expertise to not only keep our taxes low, but also improve services in town that have lacked under the current administration. For example, when I shop in the downtown with my grandson, Joe, it’s difficult to maneuver on the treacherous sidewalks.

Good government is about strong leadership. That is why on November 4th I will cast my ballot for Frank Rodgers for Mayor and Susan Vezza and Steve Flack for Council. I ask that you join me.

Sincerely your neighbor,

Maureen “Moe” Durr
Proud Resident of Caldwell, Proud Republican
