To the Editor:

I moved into Hillsborough in 1998 with my wife and 3 children. As a US Navy veteran, I see the care and compassion shown by our current local officials to those who have served, including dedicating the Municipal Complex main road as Veterans Way, a number of activities that I look forward to resuming once the pandemic is over, and being designated as the first Purple Heart Community in Somerset County. 

The continuing efforts by Mayor Doug Tomson embody respect for service, and I am confident in the vision of Doug and Janine Erickson to continue their efforts for the military veteran community.
