Monica Perkowski: Embracing Dialogue as a Path Forward

September 25, 2016

One of the focuses of my campaign is expanding the lines of communication between residents and the township council.

Letting the Jean-ie Out of the Bottle

Sometime between the end of last spring and the beginning of this fall, someone snuck into my closet and shrunk all my jeans.  I tried to convince my husband that we had a problem with the dryer, but since all of his jeans still fit, it was a hard sell.  Without thinking it through, he scoffed and suggested that maybe it wasn't the jeans – maybe it was ...

‘Bathing in Moonlight’ Recalls 1950s Cuba

PRINCETON, NJ – Although this  play by Nilo Cruz is set in 2015, reflecting both Cuba and Miami, the theme is closer to struggles at least 30 years earlier.
