Candidate Bio and Statement: www.fanwooddems.com
    I am proud of the work I have been able to accomplish for Fanwood and appreciate the opportunity to continue to help provide the leadership Fanwood needs to make progress while maintaining our strong sense of community. I am proud of my many accomplishments during my first two terms. I have been able to minimize our tax burden with the minimal amount of tools that are available to towns. I have done this through a variety of creative strategies; substantial progress on our uniquely Fanwood downtown and through the expansion of our shared services with any and all agencies that I could find. I understand that being a leader requires creative thinking on how we deliver our basic core services and I am proud to the role we have played in being the first Union County municipality to outsource our public safety dispatching program. I have also made the tough choices to reduce the size of local government by reducing the Fanwood workforce while maintaining the same level of services you’ve come to expect.
    Fanwood is family friendly and I want to keep it that way. My family and I have put down roots in this community and I have to make sure Fanwood stays the community we all love so that my three sons, Liam, Daniel and Colin can grow up and continue to live in this wonderful community we call home.
