McKinley, Roberts and Silva for Borough Assembly

  • Comments

To the editor: On Oct. 5 I am voting for Kevin McKinley, Lance Roberts and Patricia Silva. They support private property rights and smaller government just like I do.

We are a second class borough with limited powers. We need to address our backlog of maintenance before building anything new. We also need assembly members who are going to listen to the public, and these candidates have proven that is exactly what they will do.

Please join me in voting for these conservative candidates who will make it more affordable for you to continue to live in this great state.

I am writing this letter as a community member not an elected official.
