Since their candidacies were confirmed, the six candidates vying for three seats on the Verona Town Council have been answering a weekly question from MyVeronaNJ.com. This week, we decided to ask them what their prospective constituents have been asking.
As with week 1, week 2 and week 3 of this series, candidates’ responses are listed in the order in which they were received, and MyVeronaNJ.com did not edit the answers in any way, including grammar, spelling or length. The candidates are Donna Cannizzaro, Carrie Ford, Edward “Ted” Giblin, Jack McEvoy, Christopher Piccuirro and Mayor Kevin Ryan, who is the only member of the current council running for re-election. (Clicking on each name will take you to the page in this story with their answer; you can also click on the arrows to advance through.)
MyVeronaNJ.com will also be holding a candidates forum on Wednesday, April 26, at Congregation Beth Ahm, with help from the Broadcast Journalism and AP Government classes at Verona High School. The election will be held on Tuesday, May 9.
Question 4: What question do you find yourself being asked most frequently by prospective voters and how do you handle it?
Carrie cares for the same things this 85 year old
neighbor who has lived here since 1959 does. She’s
not a one issue candidate, she just loves this
community. She lives with Chris, a lifelong
Verona resident and their two beautiful children.
Carrie is articulate, bright, and an attorney who
understands contracts and other issues pertaining
to law. I think she would be a tremendous asset
to our all male council and will be objective
in her decisions Please consider a yes vote
for CARRIE FORD, you will never regret it.
