LETTER TO THE EDITOR Readington Twp New Committee Members



To the Editor,


Now that the ballots have been tallied, we are humbled and excited to be elected to represent the citizens of Readington on the Township Committee.    A campaign is not just the candidates; it is a community who contributes in many ways that makes the whole team successful.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank our supporters: those who helped us knock on doors, who hosted meet-and-greets in their homes, who organized community meetings, who financially donated, who strategized around the kitchen table, and who helped author fliers.  Without this team we would not have been successful.  To all of you, thank you!


The Readington Township Committee will continue to face a number of important issues in 2016.  The new owners of Merck will likely start communicating their plans.   We will defend our zoning to ensure that their plans are in Readington’s best interest.  The affordable housing issue, one that impacts all towns in New Jersey, will work its way through the courts.  As one of the few NJ towns with an approved 3rd round COAH plan, Readington is in a strong position.  As the various motions concerning the Solberg Airport decision come to completion, the Township Committee will face the next phase in this saga.  We remain firm that the airport is not to expand to support larger aircraft.


We look forward to representing all of you on the Township Committee and to hear your thoughts about Readington.  We look forward to increasing communications with residents, to looking into solutions to revitalizing our villages and to keeping Readington a great place to live.


Liz Duffy & Ben Smith
