Dear Editor,

I have been a Randolph Resident for over 40 years. I grew up here, went to Randolph Township Schools, and hold one of my degrees from County College of Morris. I purchased my first home here in Randolph and am an avid volunteer in the Community. I serve as the Vice Chair of the Randolph Township Economic Development Committee, serve as a Commissioner on the Planning Board, and am a board member on the Randolph Chamber of Commerce. With the leadership of Carey, Tkacs, & Veech, I have seen the evolution & growth of this community. As a commercial real estate broker specializing in Randolph, I have worked with a number of businesses that recently made Randolph their home. Even during COVID, we saw the grand openings of several businesses here in town. Randolph Township’s AAA MOODY rating, strong leadership, and economic strength have appealed to many businesses. As a matter of fact, we just had 2 ribbon cuttings this past week alone with several more businesses to come, including a large radiology group, a prominent law firm, Wawa, & Metro Self Storage. I have experienced the leadership of these Council Members whose enthusiasm and encouragement supported these businesses; down to the official ribbon cutting for their grand openings. In collaboration with our current Township Council, and with Mayor/Councilwoman Carey serving as our liaison, the Randolph EDC has been provided the tools to update our websites, build our social media presence and develop a complimentary social media advertisement programs for our businesses, including Eat Local, Shop Local, and Business Spotlights for  the Randolph Local website & social media. In collaboration with the current Township Council, we will be launching a new Shop Local Campaign in the coming months. Their commitment to this community is exemplified by all their efforts to make Randolph a “place worth living”. I would encourage Randolph residents to vote for the experienced leadership of the Township Council of Carey, Tkacs, & Veech.
