Letter to the Editor: Jackie Faust

“I don’t want a council that waits for a challenger campaign to take action and listen. I want a focus on Medford every day, not just Election Day.”

I don’t want a council that waits for a challenger campaign to take action and listen. I want a focus on Medford every day, not just Election Day. I want a council that wants my opinion, whether they may agree with me or not. They need to be civil with us. Check out the April 4th meeting on the township website. Put an end to the scare tactics and an end the position that we can’t when the towns around us find a way. No one goes to meetings anymore because they are intimidated. Five minutes to talk is what is allowed. Then council can go on for as long as they want in response, and they offer no option for our rebuttal. Stay the course doesn’t work for me. We’ve been at this recovery for a long time, and they are telling us there is no other way. Providing quality services contributes to strong property values. Let’s bring more balance to the council with new ideas and by having 2 women representing us. A bipartisan council will represent our town more accurately. In Medford, there are more unaffiliated, independent voters than either party. Make your vote count to reflect that Medford is for all.
