Republicans Win In Bernardsville
We are happy to share that after many months of hard work, we were rewarded with a resounding victory last Tuesday night! Our team swept all three Council seats, and returned Republican majority to the Borough Council.
We want to especially thank you – our supporters – for helping us get over the finish line. You selflessly gave your time and your resources because you either wanted to help us personally, believed in our vision, or had a desire to improve the future of our community. So many contributed in any number of ways – displaying our lawn sign, attending an event, introducing us to your neighbors, writing letters to the editor, donating to our campaign, helping us stuff envelopes or bags, placing phone calls, or working as a challenger on election day. Each one of you were a key part in this campaign, and together through our efforts the residents of Bernardsville responded positively to our message and plan for the community.
We particularly want to thank our core campaign team – manager John Donahue and Ross Zazzarino. We couldn’t pay much (actually, nothing!) but still they spent hours on hours with us helping to shape our campaign. We also want to thank our Mayor Mary Jane Canose and Republican Councilmembers – Chad McQueen, Jena McCredie (and John too) for their early and steady support, as well laying out an exceptional plan for the community which have the opportunity to now build on. We also want to thank Karen Gardner and the Bernardsville Republican Municipal Committee for all of their efforts from the very moment they endorsed us right through election day. And finally, we would like to recognized the other candidates through the whole ticket from Jack Ciattarelli to our Legislature and County Commissioner candidates – we were very proud to be on the ballot with each of you.
As we said on election night, we truly believe we were successful because we worked together as team. From the candidates, to the council, to the party, we all supported each other and were working in the same direction. We hope this is a foundation to build on, and continues the legacy of effective Republican leadership for Bernardsville.
We know that what residents expect now is for us to make every effort to move the community in the direction we laid out in the campaign. We are honored and grateful for the opportunity to serve our wonderful community, and are excited to get to work in moving Forward Bernardsville.
