To the Editor:
On Saturday February 18th, the annual fire elections will be held. In Hopewell Township, the polls will be open from 2:00pm until 9:00pm. Voting will take place at the Hopewell Township Municipal Building which is located at 201 Washington Crossing Pennington Road.
The date and time of this election is set by state statute and, until the date is changed by the state legislature, this is when this election must be held.
The Hopewell Township Board of Fire Commissioners has worked long and hard to present a budget to the voters that we feel is both fair to our emergency responders while being ever cognizant of the cost to our taxpayers.
The emergency services personnel in the Hopewell Valley give freely of their time and talents and deserve our support. When you hear the alarm sound, or see the ambulance or the fire truck responding to a call, rest assured that those in need will be receiving the best in care and service that is humanly possible.
Please join me on Saturday February 18th at the polls and help support our Hopewell Valley firefighters and emergency medical technicians.
Michael A. Chipowsky
Chairman, Hopewell Township Board of Fire Commissioners
