Mr. McDermott’s Campaign To Focus on Range of Issues

Gregory C. McDermott, the Republican First Ward candidate for Westfield Town Council, has announced that his campaign will focus on issues of concern to residents of his ward and the town at large.

"Listening to the community is the first step in serving it effectively," Mr. McDermott stated.

"That’s why I’ve asked my neighbors in the First Ward to take a few minutes and return the questionnaires I sent out recently.

"It’s the perfect opportunity to share their ideas and concerns, and so far the response has been very good, with many residents offering thoughtful comments and suggestions," he added.

"As I go door-to-door in the ward or visit with people in small groups, I’ll be discussing in detail the issues that the voters have said are important to them — maximizing the effectiveness of our tax dollars, a strong and safe downtown, and quality of life issues for everyone from our pre-schoolers to our senior citizens," the candidate explained.

Mr. McDermott and his running mates and campaign volunteers, will staff an information and voter registration table in downtown Westfield every Saturday this fall.

A Vice President with a New Jersey-based printing firm, Mr. McDermott also serves as the Vice Chairman of the Union County Improvement Authority, an agency responsible for financing bonds for all 21 municipalities in the county.

Born and raised in Westfield, Mr. McDermott said he is an active participant in town programs for children. He is the current Director of the Westfield Soccer Association’s Girls’ League and a long-time coach in the Westfield Baseball Association.

He and his wife, Andrea, have four children who attend school in Westfield.
