Elect Republicans November 5th

We believe that our combined experience, expertise, knowledge, and skills will provide the leadership to improve services, enhance safety, respond better to resident concerns, communicate more efficiently, build consensus and prompt government officials to streamline how they do their jobs and the way that our Borough is managed and functions.

Track Record Of Lower Taxes

Consider voting for these Republican Candidates independent of outside influences with a history of lower municipal taxes and a track record of balanced budgets and eliminating wasteful spending.

Municipal Taxes Year-Over-Year

Democrat Irresponsibility

Under Democrat control, Borough municipal taxes have increased as high as 13.3%, while under Republican control, taxes were cut as low as 6%.

Republicans implemented Zero-Based Budgeting in 2009 after years of irresponsible Democrat oversight. Every expense of the budget is now reviewed and analyzed regularly for its purpose and costs to optimize spending and identify savings.

Responsible Leadership

The Republican focus will be to reinstate quality Public Works like brush pickup, tree and street maintenance, pothole repair, improve resident communications, maintain our Borough Police and Fire Departments, and prioritize real economic opportunities that generate revenue and development that benefits Haddon Heights residents and businesses.
