Republican Candidates Offer Campaign Comments on Election Eve
Republican candidates tout spending plan, vision for Hillsborough.
Since August, we have been walking Hillsborough’s streets, knocking on thousands of doors to meet our neighbors face to face so we can discuss the pertinent issues affecting our community. We have attended numerous public events so we can show you, the voter, the commitment that we have to this wonderful community. Our dedication is clear and that is why we are asking for your support on Nov. 8 2011.
Since the start of our campaign, we have been committed to running a campaign based on facts and on the accomplishments of the Republican-led township committee.
It’s simple. Under Republican leadership, the township committee has been able to limit spending to less than 1 percent since 2008, while state aid has been depleted by millions of dollars. Our pay-as-you go capital planning budget has saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt payments, yet also provided additional public safety tools proving our commitment to the safety of our residents. We have reduced our debt by $3.6 million, completed the removal of the mercury stockpile from Hillsborough, started construction of the Route 206 Bypass and will bring renewable energy savings of $1.2 million to the township building. And we are just getting started. We have the “vibrant interest, enthusiasm and knowledge for local government” that will ensure that our town continues to grow in a positive way.
Over these past few weeks, we have written in greater detail on several topics, highlighting our hard work, accomplishments, and future vision for Hillsborough. If you may have missed any of the weekly campaign corner pieces, they can be found, along with information on our backgrounds and platform, on our website, www.HillsboroughGOP.com.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to meet so many of you and we humbly ask for your support on November 8, 2011.
Mayor Gloria McCauley
