LETTER: Hickey 'has earned your vote' in Bedminster
September 21, 2020
EDITOR: It’s not about which party can get their candidate elected, it’s about which public servant should be elected to get the job done.
As he has proven over the last three years, Bedminster Township Committeeman Colin Hickey is that person. Motivated by a desire to serve the public, Colin adeptly represents our residents by taking seriously both the fiscal responsibility to the taxpayers and the delivery of outstanding community services.
Colin has been a great supporter of our local businesses. When our local restaurants had to close their doors, he wholeheartedly supported the special permits that were issued to allow restaurants to have outdoor seating, helping to keep these businesses alive.
Colin also understands that our residents need to stay physically and emotionally fit. To that end, he has been key in keeping our parks open for recreation and establishing new rules that allow the Farmers Market to continue in its third successful year.
Though it seems so long ago, Colin was instrumental in establishing our food bank to make sure that everyone who needed a meal would have one.
The Township Committee dedicates many hours to making our tax dollars work as hard as they can. Colin’s background in business start-ups gives him the skills to look at our town budget to see where it’s necessary to invest our tax dollars and where we should be frugal with them.
It’s all connected - healthy residents, healthy businesses and a healthy town budget. For the past three years, Colin has been getting the job done. He has earned your vote.
Join me in voting to re-elect Colin Hickey to the Bedminster Township Committee so that he can continue to work on your behalf.
