For several months my running mate, Clarissa Nolde, and I have knocked on doors on every street in Garwood – sometimes two or three times. We have called, texted and sent social media messages. We have listened to hundreds of our neighbors who shared their concerns with us and provided suggestions on items we will need to tackle if elected to Borough Council. We handed out boxes of notepads and pens (all made in Garwood) and, in my case, at least 5 pounds of dog treats. We learned how to take a better selfie and the pros and cons of campaigning in the rain.
Whether we met you for the first time at the door or we are long-time friends, we want to earn your vote on Election Day.— Jeff Jotz
With Election Day approaching, we would like to sincerely thank all of the Garwood residents who provided us with words of support (and a few bottles of water) since August. Garwood is a small town and every vote will be crucial on November 2. Past elections have been decided by only a handful of votes, and this year may be no different.
I hope that Clarissa and I have demonstrated that ideas matter, and that important decisions on spending your tax money should be made after thoughtful deliberation and thoughtful planning, not off-the-cuff campaign rhetoric or social media outrage. We wish to bring a professional atmosphere to the Council as we work with the Mayor, department heads and all of our Garwood neighbors to promote tax stabilization, pedestrian safety, sustainability and improvements to our quality of life.
Whether we met you for the first time at the door or we are long-time friends, we want to earn your vote on Election Day. We sincerely hope that we were able to do that in recent weeks and we thank you for your support on Column A on November 2.
Democratic Candidate for Garwood Council
