Moms for Garwood – Vote for Kim and Heather Column B on November 2nd!

I recently received the latest campaign flyer for the Salmon/Loffredo team running for Garwood Council.
In the 51 Years, that I’ve been in Garwood, a headline such as “Putting People First, Not Politics” grabbed me and I wanted to read more because the photos of the two woman and their children made me want to read more.
The summarized action plan for when they take office drew me in even more.
The seniors in town have gotten the shaft many times by the existing council. Kim and Heather want to create and prioritize better programs and locations for our seniors.
Kim and Heather have also been monitoring the DPW’s working conditions for a while now and seem to have a great plan in order to give back to them as the DPW works very hard with our residents to keep things moving along.
Next, Garwood children along with the seniors have been last with regard to priority. They live in this town and can’t use the rec center as needed, GO FIGURE.
Heather and Kim (Moms Themselves), know what will work and make it a thriving environment. They have new and fresh ideas to make our children happy, parents as well.
My vote will be for the Salmon/Loffredo ticket to bring Garwood Forward – Let’s bring it home ladies.

Vote for Change on November 2nd!

Heather Loffredo has been my neighbor for 12 years. A devoted wife and Mother of 2 who gives so much to her family. I can honestly say, that their family has become part of mine. Always ready and willing to help. Asking for whatever I need is not necessary. Heather always seems to know. Our town of Garwood has become close to her heart. I truly believe she has our residents best interests in the forefront. I would ask that you consider voting for Heather Loffredo to make Garwood an even better place to live and raise a family.

I’ve known the Salmon Family for years. Kim is involved in many different community events and groups. I follow alot of what she discusses at the local council meetings and online and I agree with her messaging.

I would sincerely encourage a vote for Heather Loffredo and Kim Salmon for Garwood Town Council.

Have A Plan To Vote in 2021
By Clarissa Nolde

For the first time in 2021, there are three ways to vote in New Jersey! We can vote-by-mail, vote early in-person, or vote at our regular polling place on November 2nd. However you choose to vote, the most important thing is to actually do it! By voting, you are participating in the democratic process. All elections are important. This year, in addition to the two seats on the Borough Council for which Jeff Jotz and I are running, the entire state legislature and the Governor’s office are on the ballot.

So let’s review each voting option!

Vote-By-Mail

Garwood voters on the permanent vote-by-mail list should have received their ballot from the Union County Board of Elections during the week of September 20th. If you didn’t receive your ballot, or if you’re not sure if you are on the list to vote-by-mail every year, contact the Elections Division of the Union County Clerk’s Office by calling 908-527-4996 or emailing [email protected]

There’s also still time to request a vote-by-mail ballot by going to http://www.unioncountyvotes.com/, clicking on “Vote By Mail'' and following the directions posted there. Voters can apply for a ballot by mail up to 7 days prior to the election or in-person at the County Clerk’s offices in Westfield or Elizabeth until 3:00 PM the day before the election.

Vote-by-mail ballots submitted by US Mail must be postmarked no later than Election Day and received no later than six days after the polls close. A vote-by-mail ballot can also be returned, in person, to the Union County Board of Elections directly by visiting their offices at 271 North Broad Street in Elizabeth.

Of course, the most convenient way to return a vote-by-mail ballot is by using the secure drop box located outside the Garwood Public Library on 3rd Avenue. Vote-By-Mail ballots must be in the drop box no later than 8 PM on Election Day!

In-Person Early Voting

The County Clerk has established six early in person voting locations in Union County. Each location will be available from October 23rd through October 31st. The closest location to Garwood is located at Union County College, 1033 Springfield Avenue, Seminar Room A/B, in Cranford.

Please see our earlier blog post on this topic for more details or; visit the Union County Clerk’s website at http://www.unioncountyvotes.com/early-voting-2021-general/ for more information.

Election Day Voting

Election Day is Tuesday, November 2 and many people prefer to vote in person.

Polls are open all across New Jersey from 6:00AM to 8:00PM. Garwood’s polling places are the Firehouse (District 1), the Recreation Complex (District 2) or the Library (Districts 3 and 4). If you’re not sure where to vote, your polling place will be listed on the sample ballot mailed to every voter by the Union County Clerk, or you can look it up on the Union County Board of Elections website here: https://ucnj.org/boe/where-do-i-vote/

A Final Word

Many of us have busy schedules, so it’s important to choose a method, make a plan to vote, and stick to it. Make voting a habit, and remember to vote in every election! Of course, I also hope that you vote for me, Clarissa Nolde, and my running mate Jeff Jotz! You will find us on Column A on your ballot. Thank you!

Have A Plan To Vote in 2021...
Clark-Garwood, NJ|Neighbor Post|

Over the past year my wife and I got to know the Garwood Republican candidates Heather Loffredo & Kim Salmon and familiarized ourselves with their platform and agenda for Garwood and we’ve have been supporting them ever since. We all know we are now at an important moment in time in our country’s history where the Democrat party has moved so far to the left that we need elected officials like Heather Loffredo and Kim Salmon to bring us back to the political center and who are both willing to challenge their peers on council and those above them in either party putting us residents and taxpayers first.

Being a good leader is vital in politics and both Heather and Kim have already shown signs of their leadership skills…and they’re not even in office yet. Without being in office and just by them speaking out they’ve already help make some needed changed in Garwood. I read that their platform consists of the following and then some:

• Traffic safety – Did everyone notice before election season started certain intersections were upgraded with flashing safety warning lights? Coincidence? One of the sitting Democrat Councilman who’s not running now, his solution was to give out reflective safety vests and he deserved the criticism from Heather and Kim.

• DPW – For some time now Heather and Kim both have questioned the management of our DPW and had concerns over its building on South Ave. Has everyone noticed that our new Borough Administrator served as the Director of Public Works in Old Bridge, New Jersey? Coincidence? Maybe, but did you see the recent request for proposal “for Architectural Services for an initial evaluation of our DPW building. “We want the architect to look at a few options. One would be for a renovation of the existing building. Another would be for a new building on the existing site on South Avenue and a final option would be for a new building at a new location, likely the DPW yard off of Willow Avenue.” Without Heather’s and Kim’s voices this probably would not have happened.

• Recreation – Back when I started helping out in town Recreation was a Commission and we parents had some control over this department. However, once the Athletic Complex was completed and began generating revenue our elected officials decided to change it from Commission to a Committee so they could most likely include the revenue the rental of the facility generated into their budget to help keep their tax increases to a minimum and because of this are our residents really coming first? In 2019 Kim tried to fight this but the Mayor and Council passed the change. It’s a legitimate question and to me was quite concerning as to the direction the Mayor and Council was moving in as it forced good residents out of Recreation. Residents should have some say and control over recreation for the young and old like we did in the past.

When I was young and just getting involved in running for a seat on council, I learned a lot about politics from a former Councilwoman who I shared many opposing views with and still do lol, but we always seemed to come to an agreement and met in the middle. She said, “know the answer before you ask the question, and you’ll do fine.” Well…as you can see from the above bullet points, Heather and Kim have already helped make positive changes without even being elected to office as that’s what leaders do. Imagine what they can do in office if they are both elected to Council.

In addition, as to why I am not supporting the current Democrat candidates this year? It’s nothing personal, but because they’re both government employees of which we have enough of them, both former and current, sitting behind the dais now. Not that they’re bad people, but we need people like Heather and Kim who come from the non-governmental employment world and understand what it takes for a family to pay for their own benefits and retirement plan. I feel that if the two Democrats are elected, they’ll just fall in line and march along to the local county, state and federal Democrats now radical agendas without questioning any of them like what going on now. Having opposing views is great for Garwood as it opens each sides eyes to borough issues and lead to comprise and an agreement like what was done in the past.
Unfortunately, now there is too much of an effort going on in our country to silence voices who disagree with the Democrat Party. I like most others do not approve of the hard left direction our country is moving in and like all of you, I’m not a “domestic terrorist” or a “Confederate Flag waver” as the Democrat Party and our Governor call those who disagree with their current leftist policies.

This why we need to elect leaders like Heather Loffredo and Kim Salmon to represent all of us on Council and why I’m fully supporting them on Tuesday November 2, 2021.

We Will Support All Our Departments
By Clarissa Nolde and Jeff Jotz

During a conversation on a porch the other day, a resident asked us what might happen to the other departments in town if the DPW was made the number one department in line for funding. The resident is right to be concerned about how and why departments in town are funded. If elected, we are committed to making sure that funding for each department is sourced responsibly and distributed equitably.

The current Council has supported funding requests from the Garwood Volunteer Fire Department and the Garwood Police Department, as well as the DPW.

If elected, we will work with the rest of the Council to assure a responsible balance in funding for all municipal departments and services. Supporting public works is essential. The DPW performs essential functions for the maintenance of our town. It is also essential to evaluate budget requests from all department heads and keep the 5 year capital plans on course for each department so that expensive projects and purchases can be budgeted and financed without suddenly increasing the municipal tax burden.

Remember to vote by Election Day, November 2nd, for Clarissa Nolde and Jeff Jotz on Column A!

Clark-Garwood, NJ|Neighbor Post|

As Borough Council candidates, we have met with hundreds of residents to discuss our Four Point Plan for Garwood. This plan has been revised many times after hearing our neighbors’ concerns. We’ve provided a detailed explanation of each point in our plan — Infrastructure, Public Safety, Community Engagement and Sustainability — on our blog, social media sites and on video. We invite everyone to view this all on our website: www.Dems4Garwood.com!

While we have found ourselves agreeing with our opposition on some of the challenges that Garwood will be facing in the coming years, we disagree with them on the actual implementation of ways to meet these challenges and would like to point out that they rely on manufactured outrage, inflated promises and no identifiable funding source for these proposals. We understand that this time of year can often be referred to as “silly season,” but we are incredibly frustrated because it makes real discussion of issues nearly impossible.

We are pleased that all four candidates for Council believe that pedestrian safety needs greater attention. However, in their last mailer about “public safety,” the candidates called for “4 way stop signs at the busiest intersections”. Four-way stops would be welcome to slowing down traffic, but we’d like to hear where they will be placed and if they plan on working with our police and traffic engineers to see if they can actually be installed.

We’d also like to know what specific streets in Garwood they plan on converting to dead ends and if they have consulted with our public safety professionals to ensure that all residences can be reached by emergency vehicles if needed, not to mention the approval of the State Department of Transportation.

Our opponents’ proposal to hand Garwood taxpayers an exorbitant bill to construct a multimillion dollar public works complex before conducting a needs assessment done by professionals lacks the appropriate planning and preparation required. Instead, we would like to hear more from them on what funding sources they would tap to pay for such projects. Also, unlike our opposition, we are prepared to ensure all our emergency service departments are funded rather than just focus on one.

Our Police Chief recently held a town hall where he presented the public with facts and data on traffic in Garwood. Before making campaign promises, we advise the GOP candidates to review the Chief’s forum on motorists and pedestrian safety first.

If you are looking for political theatre, empty campaign promises and proposals to soak Garwood taxpayers for millions of dollars in shoot-from-the-hip campaign promises, Clarissa Nolde and Jeff Jotz are not your candidates. If you seek honest answers; measured, professional responses to challenges and a wiser use of your tax dollars, then we hope you will support us on Column A on November 2.

Thank you,

Clarissa Nolde & Jeff Jotz

How Local Government Can Engage our Community
By Councilman Marc Lazarow

Garwood is known as a “small town with a big heart”. However, true leadership from our Borough Council must pave the path for showing that heart. Residents want to get involved when they know there is someone leading the charge who will be there to support and guide them.

Over the past few years, Mayor Sara Todisco, Councilwoman Jen Blumenstock, and Councilman Vincent Kearney, have helped shepherd innovative programs such as livestreaming town meetings and creating town events to bolster ways for residents to get involved. The Green Team’s Rain Garden, the MLK Day of Service, Touch a Truck, the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign and more town hall meetings have really helped to invigorate all of Garwood to get involved and help make a difference!

These kinds of programs and events have inspired our town departments as well. The Chief of Police has implemented a successful youth academy, and the Garwood Volunteer Fire Department continues to brighten our children’s mood with visits from Santa and summer wet downs.

Clarissa and Jeff have shown they know how to engage members of the community already. Jeff has been doing it as a leader on the Green Team, and Clarissa inspires with her instruction as a music teacher and vision to create an Arts Council.

Not only that, but they both know how to pivot and prioritize issues that may require more urgent attention. As a teacher, Clarissa understands coming away from a very challenging school year requires retooling her practice to fully engage her students. Likewise, Jeff in his role as City Clerk in Rahway engages with members of the public to focus his attention on directing residents to the resources needed to help in recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Ida. Their ability to react quickly and with a healthy dose of empathy shows that both Clarissa and Jeff are ready to tackle all of the challenges that may be thrown their way.

Garwood needs energetic and thoughtful leaders like Clarissa and Jeff who embolden our residents to realize that being involved not only brings self-fulfillment, but also helps bring a sense of optimism that Garwood truly is filled with big hearts.

I truly hope you will join me in supporting Clarissa Nolde and Jeff Jotz for Garwood Council by voting Column A on November 2nd.

Our Commitment to Limiting the Tax Burden on Residents

One of our goals, if elected to the Garwood Borough Council, is to ensure a stable municipal tax levy, a trend begun under the current Democratic leadership. It’s a fact that the municipal tax was frozen twice over the last 4 years. A closer examination reveals the average municipal tax increase over the last five years (2017-2021) is$34 per home assessed at $100,000. Here is a chart that shows the last 20 years, using a 5-year average to determine tax increases.

Municipal Tax Increases by Year
2017-2021: $34
2012-2016: $84
2007-2011: $121
2002-2006: $131

This average increase, when compared with the fifteen preceding years, shows how committed the Council has been in limiting the financial burden on taxpayers. If elected, we would seek to continue this trend.

In addition, one of the financial tools that allow the council to purchase big-ticket items such as a ladder fire truck or a street sweeper is bonding. Bonds allow the municipality to pay the cost of this equipment over many years at an extremely low-interest rate. This allows the Council to keep up with the financial demands of running the town, without placing an undue burden on local taxpayers. While our opponents have criticized bonding for needed equipment, our net debt percentage is currently well under the 3% maximum mandated by the state. In fact, our current debt percentage is less than our neighbors in both Clark and Cranford, as shown in this table.

Town and Net Debt Percentage
Garwood: .902%
Clark: 1.34%
Cranford: 1.194%

Finally, we are committed to evaluating shared service agreements that save the town money in order to maintain high-quality services and will seek out new shared service agreements if they make financial sense for Garwood. The current shared service with Fanwood saves our town nearly $50,000 in salary and over $20,000 in health benefit costs by sharing a state-mandated superintendent of the DPW. In fact, Garwood taxpayers have saved $240,000 since 2015 with this shared service. Since this administrator is not permitted to do any physical labor, having a full-time Superintendent in Garwood is not cost-effective. If elected, we would continue to support this agreement in order to continue the savings for our taxpayers.

During our campaign, we have enjoyed the opportunity to speak to many residents who share our concerns about taxes and fiscal responsibility. We believe that our primary responsibility to the residents of Garwood is to continue the fiscal priorities of the current council by stabilizing taxes while also looking for new ways to both save money and make necessary investments in our infrastructure.

How Transparency Can Build Trust
By Clarissa Nolde & Jeff Jotz

In a world where anyone can share their opinions on social media as if they were facts, it has become even more important for candidates for local office to build trust and rapport with all citizens through consistent and clear communication. As we all know, the truth is rarely black and white, and usually requires context to understand the why behind a plan or a decision.

While we will surely not always agree with all Garwood residents or even each other, we promise to be direct, thoughtful, and motivated by what is in the best interest of our town. Consulting with the experts such as our Chief of Police, Fire Chief, Borough administrator, and DPW Superintendent, among other professionals, helps us to gain the knowledge to be informed in our decision making.

We also want to stress the importance of dialog between the public and Council, since we want to be aware of all issues that are impacting our residents in order to best serve them. We will advocate for more town hall meetings, like the recent one on Public Safety, to allow for more engagement from the public. Zoom meetings should be utilized when appropriate, as this format allows many more residents to be involved from the comfort of their own home.

Regardless of your political affiliation, our intentions are to make as much information as possible both accessible and understandable. This will help all residents feel connected and confident that their elected officials are accountable and dependable.

Let’s continue the conversation! To learn more about us and our vision for Garwood, please visit our website at www.dems4garwood.com or reach out to us by email at [email protected] and [email protected] anytime!
