I think I met her at Farm Fair this year... She failed to impress. Her ideas were scattered and she didn't seem comfortable with answering 'What do you want to do as Freeholder?'. I know it was early in the election season, but it lost her my vote.

We have two QUALIFIED candidates running in Burlington County as Democratic-Republicans - Donald E. Letton, a retired business owner and Scoutmaster, and Kim Johnson, who runs a local business and has graduate study in education and finance, including a Master's degree. Both are running because they are tired of watching the typical "two-party" fiction played out year after year. They are committed to transparency, both having signed the "Change the Rules" Pledge, by which they commit to never fall under the influence of the lobbyists or special interests, and promise to vote their own conscience. NO bill or expenditure will happen behind closed doors on their watch - and they will participate in actively investigating the fraud and graft of preceding administrations, at the County, State, and local levels. They are beholden to neither "George" - (Norcross for the "D's", Gilmore for the "R's".) "Stand for what's right, or settle for what's left" - Frederick John LaVergne, "Democratic-Republican" for Congress, NJ District Three.
