I grew up in Watchung. I'm raising my family in Watchung. I believe we
need representation for all of Watchung residents. We are a mix of
young, old, democrats, republicans, and independents that are
represented by a 100% Republican, generally unopposed administration.
It's time for us to be heard and make a difference. Hillary won by a
single vote in Watchung in 2016. And yet we have only ever had
Republican representation in our town. I've been told that I am the
first female Democrat to ever BE on the ballot in Watchung. It is time
In the first fully-contested election EVER in our town, simply letting
my neighbors know that they have a choice in their local election has
been a big focus. We have over 250 homes supporting us with lawn signs
(at over $4/sign!). I have done, and will be doing, mailers to each
residence, introducing myself and my platforms. I knock on doors every
single night, rain or shine, to meet my neighbors and find out what is
important to them. All of our fundraising has gone towards lawn signs,
photocopying handouts and voter registration forms, and mailers.
I grew up in Watchung, went through our school system, and was the
student representative on the WHRHS school board. I went to NYU Tisch,
majored in Theater, and started my own Broadway casting company. With
my husband, I have two boys (a 6 month old and 3 year old) am raising
my 12-year-old cousin. I have been confronted with blatant and subtle
sexism at every turn - generally suggesting that my husband run for
council instead because "how will I have the time with two small
children." With issues such as the imminent closing of our library,
tanking property values, and a general disregard for the wishes of our
neighbors, it is time for change.
