Sadaf's goals on Township Committee are to advocate for progressive policies including stepping up environmentally conscious and green programs that will provide benefits today and for generations to come.

Moreover, she look forward to learning from the residents of Montgomery Township and putting her research skills to use advocating for their best interests. More involvement in local government by a broad spectrum of participants will strengthen the Township.
