My message to the residents in the Hopatcong Borough is that I don’t have a personal agenda on the council, but rather an agenda that is targeted at serving the people of this community. I’ve grown up in the field of Service, and that’s what I’m bringing to the Hopatcong Borough Council.
When Dawn and I campaigned last Spring, we canvassed the people of Hopatcong to determine and prioritize our agenda. The most common suggestions became our platform; lower taxes, pave the roads, and bring in more businesses and support our existing ones.
In a lot of cases, we found that community members talk to each other about the things that are missing or need improvement, but those conversations never make it to the people that can do something about it. My invitation is… Come see us, we are always open to your inputs. See us around town. See us on the ball field or in the stands or at Town functions or before, during, and after Council Meetings.
My job is to see that these conversations are heard by people in a position to do something, and the people of the Borough should take advantage of direct access to the Council.
Proposed Chamber of Commerce:
What are the different phases involved in bringing a Chamber of Commerce to the Borough of Hopatcong?
- We have multiple choices. We are adjacent to two Chapters of the Sussex County Chamber of Commerce. Sussex South is comprised of businesses from Andover, Byram and Stanhope. Sparta has their own. Do we merge with an existing Chapter or form our own?
- I’d like to meet with the business owners in town to try and formulate which option is best based on their preferences.
- Let’s have a round table to further discuss this matter. I’m not a business owner in the town, but this town needs this and I am here to facilitate its formation.
If you are a Business Owner in town, please contact me directly, firstname.lastname@example.org
