July 7, 2020 Republican Primary Alert!!!

Last week the Vote-By-Mail Ballots for the July 7 Primary Election were mailed to all registered Republican voters in Bernardsville.

Some of those ballots were incorrect. In order to ensure that all registered Republicans in Bernardsville receive a corrected ballot, a new Vote-By-Mail ballot was mailed on June 15. You should be receiving this corrected, NEW ballot in your mailbox soon.

Please carefully review this new ballot together with the enclosed voting and mailing instructions. Complete your Vote-By-Mail ballot and mail at your earliest convenience. You should destroy your previously received ballot.

The official Somerset County Polling Places were assigned on June 15. Bernardsville’s ONLY polling place will be located at the Bernardsville Library, 1 Anderson Hill Road. No locations for ballot “Drop Boxes” have been established at this time.

If you have a disability and need an accessible ballot, you may go to your assigned polling place, the Bernardsville Library, which will provide access to an in person accessible voting device on Primary Election Day.

Only provisional paper ballots will be available to cast your vote if you choose to vote at the Bernardsville Library polling place.

Since this process is new, there have been “glitches”. This should not stop you from casting your ballot for the slate of Republicans in the Primary on July 7. Remember your Vote-By-Mail ballot must be postmarked no later than 8:00 PM on JULY 7, 2020.

I encourage you to complete your Vote-By-Mail ballots and get them in the mail. Let’s make sure all of our Republican votes count!     

Update from Assemblywoman Dunn

Hello – we wanted to provide a few updates from Assemblywoman Dunn’s latest newsletter…

Monthly Update

The month of May brought us promise as COVID cases and hospitalizations reached an all time low since the pandemic’s outbreak in March. We have entered June, however, with a collective anguish over the unrest in our nation. From despair comes healing. Let’s stay the course together! 

Economic well-being is paramount to a healthy and thriving society, which is why I persist in calling on the Governor to reopen. Although the Governor has provided a vague plan, it is not enough and needs more details. That is why I started an online petition for the public to call on the Governor to lay out a plan. After all, small business owners deserve that! You may find it here:

News updates from NJGOP

We hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day weekend.

Passing on some selected updates from the NJGOP for the week:

In case you missed it yesterday, on behalf of shuttered employers and some 1.1 million unemployed workers from around New Jersey, Chairman Doug Steinhardt and the NJGOP have joined forces with a group of small business owners and filed a lawsuit against Governor Phil Murphy and his Administration. Plaintiffs’ claims challenge the Governor for creating arbitrary and capricious classes of employers and employees and enacting and enforcing unconstitutional executive orders that deny millions of New Jerseyans equal protection under the law.

NJ Parks to reopen on Saturday!

Here is some information on the park openings, as well as great information on a food pantry collection site, from Assemblyman Jay Webber…

Dear Friends,

As many of you know, on the very day that Governor Murphy imposed executive order 118 closing all State and County parks and forests – April 7 – I was the first official in the State to call on the Governor to rescind that order.  I issued an open letter to the Governor and invited New Jerseyans to sign on to urge him to reverse course.  So many of you signed that petition, and I am thrilled to announce that the PARKS WILL REOPEN ON SATURDAY!
