To the Editor:
As the Assembly Republican Leader of the New Jersey State Legislature, I am honored and proud to support Dave Kennedy's bid for the Washington Township Committee.
I first met Dave more than 17 years ago, and throughout the many times we worked together I have come to respect both his intellect and desire to make a difference in the lives of others. He is a natural leader who I believe will be an asset to Washington Township in these fiscally challenging times. His years of public service are marked by sound management skills, fiscal prudence, and ethical conduct.
Dave is open, honest, and direct in his dealings with people and true to his character in this campaign he has refused to engage in mudslinging so commonplace today. His prior career in managing the Roxbury Township Police force and membership in the police union will serve the town well, and contrary to the accusations of his opponent pose no issue for his ability to negotiate union contracts on behalf of the town. In fact, I can think of few individuals who can equal Dave's negotiating skills which have been honed by years of direct hands-on experience.
It is encouraging to see individuals of Dave's character run for public office with the simple goal of helping to make the town his family lives in a better place. I believe he is the best candidate in the race and encourage Washington Township voters on June 8th to come to the polls and vote for Dave Kennedy.
