Hate Has No Home Here In Wayne

Yes, this happened in our town:

Racially Charged letter in Packanack Lake

Three members of our Town Council, who are also members of Packanack and were present at that March 27 community meeting,  chose to be silent that evening. They had an opportunity to be heard by hundreds in our community.  Instead,  they let the Mayor stand alone to address this, and waited until the April 3 Town Council meeting, where only a handful of people were present, to do the right thing.

Here’s what I said at that Council Meeting -->

Sustainability / Environment and
Quality of Life, a Win-Win for Wayne

Smart choices today can ensure a brighter, healthier future.

Incentives can encourage Wayne businesses to be more green. We can recognize these businesses at town council meetings, and create a listing on our township website of businesses that are increasing their sustainability!

 

Wayne Schools have achieved Bronze certification from Sustainable NJ. As a result, Our schools have qualified for several grants. Green Initiatives Files Patch article

Wayne Township is not bronze certified, so  we’re losing out on grants that would increase our sustainability and quality of life-- it’s time to move forward on this!

Those who hold public office should lead by example and model appropriate behavior at all times.

I propose that the Wayne Town Council establish a Code of Conduct Committee, and include public input to create a set of guidelines for our elected officials.

Education

Strong, well-funded public schools are one of the best investments we can make now to ensure our children’s future, and to maintain our property values.
Under our previous Governor, Wayne Schools were underfunded by thousands of dollars per student: NJ.com article.  Ward 2 Councilman Sadowski complained a lot about it— but he never went down to Trenton to advocate for us. 

Governor Murphy's proposed budget will increase funding to the Wayne schools

As Ward 2 Trustee, I’ll work with County and State officials, and fight to ensure Wayne Schools and other vital township programs get funded!
