We’re doing it.

Roselle Park is changing into a lean, mean governing machine.

Together we’ve started to: 

  • Tackle costs – 2019’s Council passed one of the tightest budgets in decades. Together, we’re streamlining the way government runs, and cutting inefficiencies where we can. Our goal is to ensure Roselle Parkers get the most bang for their buck. To achieve these lofty goals we’ve entered into a historic shared services agreement with the County of Union for police dispatch, and we’re constantly looking for new ways to help maximize taxpayer dollars.
  • Redevelop our town – From smaller infrastructure projects to big redevelopment plans we’re looking to turn blighted eyesores into a buzzing downtown.  The borough is investing in cleaning up our infrastructure, paving roads, and moving forward with better development deals to improve our downtown and transit corridors.
  • Get the basics right  – We’re starting to get the simple things right, like better communication. We’ve started live streams of our council meetings, started a newsletter for town info, as well as improved communication with Trenton, our neighbors and the county.

And we’ve got much bigger plans on the horizon. Roselle Park Borough has secured commitments to renovate our train station, rework Westfield Ave./  State Highway 28, and we’re working with Rutgers University to plan for utilizing green space at Hawthorne Basin.

I hope you’ll keep fighting with me and the Roselle Park Democrats to make Roselle Park the pride of Union County!
