Let’s Show Up for Ana Duarte McCarthy!

December 22, 2023

I hope this message finds you well and enjoying friends and family during the holiday season.

Looking ahead, in just about ten days, our own Ana Duarte McCarthy will be sworn in as the third ever Democratic member of the Bernards Township Committee! 

The township’s reorganization meeting will take place Tuesday, January 2, 2024, at 7pm, at Town Hall, 1 Collyer Lane, where Ana will be given the oath of office from Sara M. Sooy, Somerset County Commissioner.  Please join me that evening in giving Ana a very warm welcome and hard-earned recognition of her election success. I hope to see you there!

Also, if you haven’t done so already, mark your calendar for our next BTDC general meeting on January 117pm at the library. It’s time to gather and re-focus on a productive year ahead. Happy Holidays!
