Westfield Scotch Plains, NJ
Mr. McCabe CampaignsOn Business Background

Marc McCabe, of Clark Street, the Democratic candidate for the First Ward seat on the Westfield Town Council, has pledged to bring better management and fiscal controls to Westfield’s municipal budget process.

"I am running for the Town Council because I believe that bringing a business background to the council can help keep property taxes stable and improve municipal services," said Mr. McCabe.

"I want our children to grow up in a town which is looking to the future," he added.

Mr. McCabe is Assistant Vice President of Insurance and Risk Management for Acordia Northeast, a Morristown firm.

"Westfield is a great town, and better planning by the Town Council can help us ensure that it stays that way," Mr. McCabe said. "I would introduce stronger fiscal controls and improve long-range planning so that our tax dollars are used more wisely."

Mr. McCabe has lived in Westfield since 1993 with his wife, Alison. The couple have a 15-month daughter, Elizabeth.

"I will be a visible, proactive councilman — one who residents will always be comfortable approaching with a problem or concern," Mr. McCabe said.

"I can bring new ideas and energetic leadership to this position," he said.

Mr. McCabe serves as a member of the Westfield Solid Waste Advisory Commission, appointed by Mayor Thomas C. Jardim, and also participates on the New Jersey and Somerset County chapters of the Association for School Business Officials.

The candidate also is a member of the Utility Transportation Contractors Association. As a volunteer, Mr. McCabe helped the American Cancer Society to raise more than $15,000 in one day this past May, and was recently elected Secretary of the South Orange-based Seton Hall University School of Business Alumni Council.

In his spare time, Mr. McCabe said he enjoys golf and running.
