Ruger and Kuchinski make Hopewell Township a great place to live

by Community Contributor

To the Editor:

When deciding where to live, Hopewell Township has become an excellent choice thanks to the leadership of Hopewell Township Committee Members Michael Ruger and Kevin Kuchinski. 

On the issue most on the minds of many New Jerseyans, Ruger and Kuchinski worked tirelessly to reduce the residential property taxes required to fund the Hopewell Township government. They practice disciplined budget control while finding additional commercial and state revenue sources. That not only holds the line on residential property taxes, the tax rate for local government spending has been reduced for two years in a row. 

At the same time, Mayor Ruger and Township Committee Member Kuchinski have enhanced Hopewell Township’s commitment to preserve and protect our lands and waterways. Nearly 43% of the land area in our 60 square-mile township is nowdedicated to open space, recreation, and preserved land. 

Finally, Ruger and Kuchinski have led the way to investments in community assets such as the band shell at Woolsey Park, an improved 911 dispatch system, the development of a new community/senior center, and extension of the Lawrence Hopewell Trail. 

Thanks to their leadership, Hopewell Township is one of the best places to live in New Jersey. 

In this year’s election for Hopewell Township Committee, whether you vote by mail, during early in- person voting from October 28th to November 5th, or in person on November 7th this year, vote to re-elect Michael Ruger and Kevin Kuchinski.
