The Cranford Democrats gathered on August 22 at Hanson House for a regular, summer meeting.
We were joined by Mayor Tom Hannen, who is running for re-election this year. The Mayor filled the group in on local municipal business, especially the closing of the long, complicated Birchwood agreement. Commissioner Jean-Albert Maisonneuve updated Democrats on the quiet, steady progress on downtown improvements.
Freeholder Vice Chair Bette Jane Kowalski brought two of the Democratic Freeholders running this year: her colleagues Freeholder Rebecca Williams and Kim Mouded-Palmieri.
A representative from Tom Malinowski’s campaign spoke about a recent poll showing him with a narrow lead over Rep. Leonard Lance. The Malinwski campaign has knocked on more doors than any other House race in the nation, and has already completed TWO waves of door-to-door campaigning in Cranford. They plan many more.
Lance, has bragged about voting more than 60 times to eliminate the Affordable Care Act, voted to restrict regulators from considering a person’s severe mental illness when they purchase guns and has been an earl and enthusiastic proponent for ending Net Neutrality, allowing internet providers to restrict access and raise rates on consumers.
