Our county parks are gems of our communities and pillars of our civil society. That’s why the Column A Democratic team for the Board of Chosen Freeholders pledges continued investment in our parks service, keeping them clean, safe and accessible to every resident. The Column A Democratic team knows that preserving open space for public use is critical to this effort, as a result they are committed to continuing their support of shared open space grants to encourage municipalities to preserve new land for parks.
Infrastructure projects link our communities, allowing our communities to prosper and businesses to flourish. Under the Column A Democratic team, the Board of Chosen Freeholders will continue its investments in county roads and other infrastructure projects that keep Union county moving and working. Just in the last year, the Board of Chosen Freeholders repaved county roads in 14 municipalizes, keeping them up to the high standard expected by the residents of Union County.
Working together through shared services arrangements, the Column A Democratic team will continue working to make government more efficient and less expensive. Expanding the county’s Ambulance Program and other shared services arrangements allow taxpayer savings at all levels of government. Our new countywide shared EMS dispatch service serves as the model for these projects, growing continuously and keeping costs to municipalities down while providing top-class government service.
Fighting for what’s right
In Union County we believe our government should represent the best among us, not the lowest common denominator that we often get from Washington DC. That’s why we stand as the Board of Chosen Freeholders behind what we believe in. It’s why we created special government offices dedicated to supporting and advancing the interests of Women and LGBTQ residents in our community. It’s why our county supported the Paris Accords even after Washington turned its back. The Column A Democratic team fights for our county every day, standing up for what we know to be right in the name of our residents.
