Twp. Mayor Endorses Sullivan

Nicole Hagner gives her reasons for supporting Kevin Sullivan in the polls.

Dear Editor:

With the Tuesday, June 5 Republican Primary fast approaching, I urge all Republican voters to cast their vote for Kevin Sullivan for Committee. 

I strongly value Kevin’s background, experience, and capabilities. Here in Chatham Township, we are fortunate to have such a strong candidate to put our support behind in the upcoming election. 

Many of you know Kevin either as a member of the Planning Board, as an athletic coach, or as an active parishioner at St. Patrick's.  What you may not know about him is that he is a retired Captain in the United States Marines, a proud family man, and a financial professional for over 20 years. 

In these times of economic turbulence, the Township Committee needs Kevin's brand of conservative fiscal expertise to preserve our AAA bond rating and to hold the line on the 0 percent municipal tax increase we have maintained for the last two years. It is for these reasons that Kevin has been endorsed by the Chatham Courier and numerous other local Republican officeholders.

Under steady Republican leadership, I am so proud of what our Township Committee has accomplished. In order for Chatham Township to continue to prosper, we will need fiscally conservative Republicans to take the helm and govern by common-sense values, in good times or bad. That is why we need Kevin Sullivan next Tuesday.

 

Nicole Hagner

Mayor, Chatham Township

Instead of running around town trying to get your and Brower's boy elected shouldn't you be explaining to tax payers how they are going to be subject to hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal expenses now that the town has to respond to a major legal suit? Chatham Twp. is getting sued over the incompetency in crafting the market ordinance. I'm a proponent of farming in Green Village but I'm not a proponent of yours and Browers properties being included in the "right to farm" passage (entitling you to pay lower taxes). Does this not scream - Conflict of Interest?? There was also a failure to enforce "Megan's Law" on these properties which would enable future workers to potentially be brought in to the green village area that could be dangerous to our kids. And don't you work for one of the major owners of the Superfund site - another property identified as a right to farm one per the market ordinance? Again, conflict of interest? How hard is it to keep our taxes low when you collect the exhorbant amount that you do from hard working tax payers. All you do is beat your chest on what a great job you've done, and campaign hard for your hand picked rubber stamper, yet you fail to let the tax payers know what is going on. People have a right to be in the know.

Lots of conflicts.. !!!

Maybe they should have had an outside council advising them on this. The lawyer that was advising on this now stands to make hundreds of thousands in legal fees when this goes to court. When they lose they will appeal and spend more. Just for a few residents to have lower taxes ? Maybe thats why they are pushing so hard for Sullivan for just another puppet? Mr. Sullivan what is your thoughts on commercial farming for the all of town? Are you prepared on this issue ?

Comments referring to Kevin Sullivan, a former Marine Corps officer and man of unquestionable integrity as anything but that are uninformed at best and totally without merit. It is clear that you do not know the man. Further, if it is easy to hold down taxes as you say, why is Chatham Township the only municipality to in Morris County, and quite possibly all of NJ to hold taxes flat for the last two years. Ask your neighbors in Madison and Chatham Borough how easy it is. I do agree with one part of the above post - that people have the right to be in the know- especially before posting misinformation on public message boards. Kevin Tubbs
