Letter to the Editor: Jackowski Running for Hopewell Township Committee

Ed “Jack” Jackowski

My name is Ed “Jack” Jackowski, and I am a candidate in this year’s election for Hopewell Township Committee.

Born and raised in New Jersey, I have lived in Hopewell Valley for over 20 years. I have built a life here with my lovely wife, Anita, and, after leaving a career in the financial services industry, we opened our family business, Jack’s Greenhouse and Farm, located in Hopewell Township. We have two children, Sarina and Jaina. Sarina is a proud graduate of Hopewell Valley Regional High School and now studies Environmental Sciences at Elon University, and Jaina attends Timberlane Middle School. We love raising our family in Hopewell Valley, and I feel it is time to for me to give back to the community that has given us so much.

The Hopewell Township Committee has shown an unwillingness to listen to our residents’ heartfelt concerns and the poor decisions made by the current administration are being made with reckless speed and little public input.

They have shown a complete disregard to mount a meaningful fight against developers, opting to further burden our already fragile infrastructure.

Unexplained and unnecessary personnel vacancies has resulted in a slowdown of our local government services; one example is the inability to pick-up brush that has piled high in many of our neighborhoods.

My background as a small business owner, my training as a US Marine, and as an officer of various local organizations, such as the Free Masons Cyrus Lodge #5 in Pennington and the Woosamonsa Schoolhouse Association, I have the unique skill set needed to listen to our residents, identify their needs, and consider the long term implications of each decision. These are the skills that I see as lacking in our current administration.

What makes Hopewell so unique, are the residents and their acceptance of diverse opinions. Our wonderful community is built on the connections we make with our friends and neighbors. We talk with one another at the local farmer’s market, socialize at barbeques, and cheer our kids on from playgrounds to the athletic fields.

I look forward to meeting with the residents as I walk the neighborhoods, listening to your thoughts and ideas about how we can strengthen our community. The Township Committee must embody the core beliefs of the current residents of Hopewell Valley, not those of developers who wish to line their pockets by destroying our scenic countryside and peaceful way of life.

Please vote for me,  Ed “Jack” Jackowski, for Hopewell Township Committee on November 6th.
