With the primary elections coming on June 7, we thought it would be a good time to hear directly from the candidates themselves about the issues that matter to residents.
The primaries will determine which two of the three candidates will run for two open seats on the township council in November under the Republican party.
The are not contested this year, with residents John Rooney and Mary Pranzatelli vying for the two nominations.
On four different days this week, we will feature video responses from the three candidates—Matthew Moench, Michael Pestorius and Christine Henderson Rose—on questions concerning why they would like the nomination, the issues relevant to the township and how they will run their campaigns.
For this first question, we asked the candidates what they, as individuals, would bring to the Republican party if they were chosen to run for township council in November.
