Bernards Township, NJ - Earlier this year, Republican candidates for the Bernards Township Committee, Jim Baldassare and Kate Grochala, announced their campaign under the banner of “Leadership That Puts You First.” Today, Jim and Kate are very happy to declare victory by overwhelming numbers.
Throughout the campaign, Jim and Kate had a consistent message, namely: “We are fiscal conservatives devoted to promoting efficient, responsive, transparent and community-focused government. Having served our township in various capacities, I have worked to make sure other families have the same positive experiences we have had in raising our families in Bernards”, explained Jim.
As Kate emphasized during the campaign: “We are committed to keeping Bernards Township the safe and welcoming community our residents have chosen to call home.” Kate noted, “We believe all of our residents deserve to be treated equally with respect and dignity.” Those themes clearly resonated with voters in what was a huge turnout.
“We want to thank all of our supporters, including the many independent and Democratic voters who voted for us, for having faith in us to represent you at the Township level. We will continue to work as hard and as smart as we can for all the residents of Bernards Township. Thank you all for your confidence and support, and may God Bless each and every one of you.” - Jim and Kate
