Lighted Turf Field Proposed in Westfield On Scotch Plains Border
9/ 11 Remembered:   September 11th and the days that followed were the most difficult days I have encountered as Mayor of this town. I continue to be humbled by the strength of the Westfield families who lost loved ones on that day and am immensely proud of the outpouring of concern and support that the community has expressed for its neighbors. Gregory McDermott, Mayor of Westfield, Sept. 12, 2002   Details

Jim is an independent businessman having built a successful law practice. “Based on my experience running a law practice, I know the importance of being fiscally responsible.” Jim believes that thoughtful budgeting and prudent spending are the keys to running a successful business and town government is no different. “I promise to work hard to limit spending without sacrificing the high standard of services we as Westfielders expect. I will utilize our tax dollars wisely and commit myself to maintaining our beautiful parks, ball fields and recreation facilities.” Jim will continue to improve our streets and sidewalks so that our families may travel safely about town.       “We need to take a fresh look at the budget and find new innovative ways to maximize the productivity of our limited tax dollars.” Jim believes that as taxpayers, we must hold Union County Government responsible for its runaway spending. As part of the Westfield Republican Team, he will work side by side with fellow Westfielders Senator Tom Kean, Jr. and Assemblyman Jon Bramnick to increase state aid to Westfield. “By fighting to increase state aid, we can help to ease our property tax burden which is presently borne on the backs of our seniors and hard working families.” As part of the Westfield community, Jim is a member of the Westfield Jaycees serving as that groups President last year while continuing his work on the Child Shield Program. As a member of the Jaycees, Jim helps to raise money for college scholarships for our graduating seniors.
