Mary Mahoney Democratic Candidate for Middletown Township Committee

As a resident of Middletown for 24 years, I have enjoyed the roles of wife, mother, and successful business woman. For the last ten years, I have worked to improve our community, serving as a PTA volunteer and board member and, until recently, as a director on the board of the Lincroft Village Green Association.

I was content to continue this service but my recent exposure to Township officials changed my mind. The Township’s ill-planned approach to building turf fields opened my eyes to the serious shortcomings of our local government. This experience and the extreme challenges facing our State and Township convinced me to get more involved. As a result, I have decided to pursue, a seat on the Middletown Township Committee.

Participating in recent town meetings, I became disillusioned with the lack of transparency, poor planning and misplaced priorities that waste our precious resources and tax dollars. Despite a $5,000,000 budget deficit in 2010, our Township Committee has yet to hold a budget meeting and has already missed five months of potential budget savings. This is unacceptable. Twenty-nine years of single party rule has produced inefficiency and waste.

This Township needs a common sense, apolitical approach to governing. I have no personal agenda other than a determination to serve my fellow residents. My aim is to protect our quality of life and will strive to improve it. I welcome your energy, input and shared commitment to work with me in achieving this goal.

Join Senator Buono On June 16th, 2010

On Wednesday, June 16th, we hope you’ll join Senator Barbara Buono for a very special event at Tumulty’s Pub in New Brunswick.

We are facing an assault that threatens New Jersey’s tradition of progressive policies that we pride ourselves on.

We need to organize against a rollback of environmental regulations that protect workers and the public, against a disinvestment in public education, and against policies that harm our most vulnerable and erode our civil rights.

Join us to share ideas and strategize for moving forward over dinner and drink.

Tumulty’s Pub
361 George Street, New Brunswick, NJ
Wednesday, June 16th
5:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Donation: $25 payable to the Election Fund of Barbara Buono

Senator Barbara Buono (D-18) is the first woman to serve as Majority leader in the New Jersey State Senate. Each and every day, she’s working hard to create jobs, bring about fiscal accountability and make Trenton more open, honest and accountable. Barbara Buono believes progressive values and solutions make sense – not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because it’s also the smart, practical and fiscally responsible course of action.

Let’s come together to protect our environment, create jobs and make our state a more affordable place to live and work. Let’s find ways to provide funding for the best possible public education our children, for affordable healthcare for all our families and to make sure seniors can afford life-saving prescription drugs.

Right now, our progressive agenda is under attack. Barbara Buono wants to hear from you on how we can work together to forge the best possible future for our state and all the families who live here.

Please join Senator Buono Wednesday, June 16th to share your ideas, concerns and solutions. We look forward to seeing you there!
