Kate Rappa

The Cranford Democratic Committee has announced its 2021 candidate for the Cranford Township Committee will be Kate Rappa. 

Rappa, a corporate auditor and real estate professional, has spent years lending her skills and leadership to organizations throughout Cranford. In addition to serving on the Cranford Planning Board and on the Environmental Commission, Kate is a member and treasurer of the Cranford Library Board of Trustees, and co-President of the Newcomers Club.

“I am excited to support Kate Rappa and look forward to working with her on the Township Committee,” said Mayor Kathleen Miller Prunty. “Kate embraced Cranford as a volunteer on projects and activities before she stepped forward to serve on the Library Board, Planning Board, and now as a candidate. She will be a welcome addition as we explore new ideas and better ways to serve residents.”

“Kate is a person who can handle whatever the situation demands, who will bring experience in finance as well as compassion for children and families,” added Democratic Municipal Chair BJ Kowalski. “I cannot think of a better person to lead Cranford.”
