"As commissioner, I will take seriously my role to serve constituents and the issues you care about like the affordable housing shortage, improving public transportation, small businesses and economic development, driving down costs for municipalities, and preserving our parks and open spaces."
The job of a county commissioner is to fully fund public services, support a safe and thriving infrastructure, and manage a fiscally responsible, transparent budget.
It’s not about taking a stance on manufactured culture war issues as a tool to pave one’s greater political aspirations.
Yet in the GOP primary, my opponent participated in a race to the right to see who could leverage the most extremist clout. This does nothing to move Morris County forward.
Selen boasts about “voting to condemn” women’s reproductive rights and common sense health education in schools. This is performative and polarizing — A commissioner’s job is to support services for all, despite their political beliefs. That includes supporting our schools, teachers, students, and the diverse community in Morris County.
My job will be to ensure a fair, balanced budget that protects taxpayers' money and make sure they have fully funded services without unnecessary tax hikes. Most of all, my job will be to listen. I’m not running to grandstand – I’m running to serve.
