Ideas of Blaeuer, Phelan, Granata in line with our values

| 03 Oct 2023 | 07:32

    I’m voting for Melissa Brown Blaeuer for mayor as well as Karen Phelan and Mary Granata for Township Council because of their commitment to West Milford and because their ideas for improving our community are in line with values we can all stand behind.

    They want to lower taxes by using regional services to streamline the government.

    They will represent the people from all parts of town, promoting unity and working with others to solve problems.

    They want to create a healthy, green environment by promoting tourism and helping entrepreneurs to get online.

    They plan to build a network of multiuse trails with the NY/NJ Trail Conference and the Jersey Off Road Bicycle Association, which will connect to our town center, increasing traffic to our local shops and restaurants.

    They also plan to implement the West Milford Sustainable Economic Development plan, which will help the long-term prosperity of our town.

    Protecting our resources is an important part of their platform: helping lake businesses and communities enforce drainage rules to stop harmful algae blooms and preventing logging on public recreation and conservation lands while also stopping the expansion of fossil fuel plants.

    If you want people who will serve your best interests on our Township Council, I urge you to vote for Melissa, Karen and Mary this November.
