A Thank You for Kathy Abbott

I'd like to thank Kathy Abbott for all the wonderful work she's done for the Chatham Township community. I, like so many others, was stunned and disappointed to read Councilman Brower's letters attacking her character and I'd like to take this opportunity to assure the community of one thing - the words "Never Never Land", "radical" and "confrontational" are far more representative of Councilman Brower's letters than they are of Ms. Abbott's character. You need only read Kathy's response - researched, educated, well-thought out, and tempered - to appreciate the truth.
I encourage Chatham Township residents to vote for Kathy Abbott in the primary election this Tuesday. She's done an outstanding job on the Township Committee and I believe our community is best served by seeing Ms. Abbott continue in that role. I have worked with Kathy Abbott on various PTO and community initiatives over the years and have always found her to be well-informed, open-minded, hard-working, dedicated and resourceful. In her Township Committee role, she takes time to reach out to the community, she researches issues, she's open to and respectful of differing perspectives and she is a wonderful collaborator, working hard to find the best solution for all. Is she passionate about Environmental issues? Absolutely! And thank goodness for that! It is the passion in our community that provides the countless volunteer hours that result in positive results. Kathy Abbott has contributed tremendously to our beautiful, bucolic Township while being thoughtful of costs and property owner rights. She has also been tremendously resourceful, working to bring State and Federal funds to Chatham to support improvements in our community. I couldn't ask for a better person to represent the interests of Chatham Township residents. I hope you'll take the time to vote for Kathy Abbott on Tuesday.
