Jim Buell

Mount Olive Town Council

[su_expand link_align=”right” more_icon=”icon: long-arrow-down”]

Jim Buell is a legacy public servant with a lifelong commitment to Mount Olive.

Jim has lived in Mount Olive for over 40 years. He is the last Democrat to have served on the town council, from 2004 – 2007. During that time, he earned numerous accolades from colleagues, including a resolution honoring his commitment to public service and devotion to his position on the Town Council. The Mount Olive Chronicle endorsed Jim’s candidacy each time he ran for Council, in 2003, 2007, 2009 and 2011. While serving on the Council, Jim qualified as an EMT and firefighter. He volunteered with the Flanders Fire and Rescue Company #1 from 2005 until 2011. Jim also volunteered with the Mount Olive Trap, Neuter and Release program to save feral cats.

Jim is an MBA graduate of the Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania. He was a human resources executive including serving as the Director of Human Resources at Overlook Hospital in Summit New Jersey. Following that, he operated a human resource consulting business for over 20 years.

Jim brings vast experience working within town government and an innate understanding of how to “right the ship.” He is willing and able to serve as an immediate reference point for past decisions, both good and bad, and to voice opposition when warranted.

Jim’s biggest and most impactful ideas have frequently been implemented, though not always with proper accreditation during his tenure on the Council. He proposed in-house fleet maintenance of township vehicles; a sensible reduction of the police force through retirement and attrition; and modernized garbage collection, all with an eye towards fiscal responsibility and improved services for residents. These proposals were all finally enacted years after Jim’s departure from the Council. Through years of indecisiveness, Jim has been a voice of reason and resolve. Today, he is eager to return to the Council and bring that firm sense of purpose and determination back to the decision-making process in Mount Olive.

Matt Fink

Mount Olive Town Council

[su_expand link_align=”right” more_icon=”icon: long-arrow-down”]

Matthew Fink brings outstanding experience and knowledge about growing a green economy and sustainable development.

Matthew has generated his career success through the strength of relationships he has built along the way. He is adept at working with a wide variety of personalities to find equitable solutions for all stakeholders.

Matthew was inspired to join the Town Council race after last fall’s Presidential election. He believes that today, after 40+ years of Republican majorities on the Town Council, it is passed time for a change. He looks forward to bringing a fresh voice to the council and representing Mount Olive’s Democratic, Liberal, and Progressive citizens.

Matthew handles Northern & Central New Jersey sales for Banville Wine Merchants. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in International Business from Northeastern University, 2003.

Matthew’s Top 3 Issues

  1. Budd Lake is in need of greater attention. Mount Olive’s municipal government has recently begun to move on this issue by holding open meetings to gather ideas on redevelopment around the lake. I believe Budd Lake should be protected as our town’s most treasured natural resource as well as used to its greatest potential as an attraction. I will work with the Mayor, Zoning, Recreation, and local businesses to ensure that Budd Lake is developed responsibly, sustainably, ethically and profitably.
  2. Events in recent months have shown that Mount Olive, and our region, are not immune to national racial issues. An incident of racist graffiti at Mount Olive High School brought these issues to light locally. After the neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, VA, and murder of Heather Heyer, Mount Olive Democrats organized a vigil at Budd Lake. I, and Mount Olive Democrats, will continue working to bring our town together for greater unity and to celebrate our diversity. I will work with all Mount Olive communities to ensure that every citizen has a powerful voice and equitable representation at the Council table.
  3. At a recent Council meeting, a request for a resolution in support of the Paris Climate Accord and the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, and simultaneous request to study town hall solar panel installation, were declined as nothing more than a “feel good statement” with no results. These statements, and the actions that result from them, are vitally important. Mount Olive’s business districts and the ITC are in need of revitalization. I will work to ensure that this is done with an eye towards environmental responsibility. While renewable energy becomes more prevalent as part of our state’s overall electricity needs, Mount Olive can and must be a leader.

Kris Grasso offers leadership experience and seasoned executive administration talents.

A person who always places people first, Kris has built a career over the last 20 years in clinical and operational leadership positions in health care in New Jersey as a registered nurse, a director of nursing, and a licensed nursing home administrator. Her inspiration through all of this – she wants to make a positive difference. Active listening, building strong teams, analyzing data, developing and executing strategic plans in a collaborative manner are as important in the organizations she has led as they are in local government. The skills that led her to career success are the same abilities she will utilize to benefit the residents of Mount Olive. Kris feels honored to be one of the four Mount Olive Democrats on the November ballot after an overwhelming response to a write-in campaign by Mount Olive voters in the June primary.

Kris is the Executive Director of Complex Care Management at OptumCare New Jersey/UnitedHealth Group. She holds a Bachelors Degree in Human Resource Management from Wilmington University and an Associates Degree in Nursing from Gloucester County College.

Kris’ Top 3 Issues

  1. As a homeowner in Mount Olive, I am as concerned as my neighbors are about municipal property taxes. I believe that there are opportunities to enhance municipal services while reducing expenses through developing shared services with neighboring towns and coordination across local, county and state agencies. The result would be greater value for the municipal taxes that we do pay, not an increase in the amount.
  2. One-third of Mount Olive is protected open space. Additionally, Budd Lake is the state’s largest naturally formed lake. Our tremendous natural resources in the heart of the Highlands region must be protected. The modern use of open space should result in sustainable development on and around Budd Lake now that the Highlands Council has designated areas of Budd Lake as a redevelopment zone.
  3. Ensuring equitable and inclusive representation for all of Mount Olive will be a priority for me as a councilperson. Diversity of thought leads to better decisions on behalf of our township. Listening and responding to the needs of diverse voices is also critical to increasing community engagement and building greater sense of unity in Mount Olive.

Paige Livingston

Paige Livingston

Hunterdon County Freeholder

[su_expand link_align=”right” more_icon=”icon: long-arrow-down”]

Paige Livingston is running for Hunterdon County Freeholder. She holds a B.A. in Sociology, an M.A. in Human Resource Management, and is employed in the Corporate Training and Development department of a pharmaceutical company Paige is a longstanding, proud resident of Hunterdon County and single mother of four children who are currently enrolled in, or have graduated from, Hunterdon County public schools.

After the 2016 Presidential election, Paige was disappointed and saddened with the direction and divide she saw in this country. Rather than passively accepting the status quo, she chose to look for ways to take action within her own community. She passionately believes that by acting locally we can enrich our community and affect change on a larger scale. The current group of County Freeholders is made up of four men and one woman, all Republicans. Paige believes that it is vitally important to have balanced representation in decision making boards in order to ensure all taxpayers are being represented.

Paige Livingston hopes to make the Board more transparent to our residents, foster sustainable economic growth, and improve transportation infrastructure in our county. Paige believes the Board of Freeholders should conduct its public business as openly as possible, making information about their proceedings readily available and easily understood. Paige also wants to encourage eco-friendly investments in our communities through small business, the local wine industry, the farm-to-table movement, and continuing to fight the PennEast Pipeline which would be devastating to our area. Paige also wants to improve county roads, Link services, and look into other opportunities to attract visitors to showcase our unique river towns.

The race for county Freeholder is like no other. With around 96,000 registered voters in our county, we need all the Democrats to show up to vote for Paige! This year is our year! Many Democrats have become more active, writing in their names to oppose Republican candidates at the local level, and turning out to vote in the 2017 primary in record numbers. With a strong gubernatorial candidate at the top of the ticket, we are predicting increased Democratic voter turnout this year. Looking at the voter turnout for non-presidential years 2015 and 2014, the turnout for Republican Freeholder votes were about 14,000 and 25,000 respectively. In the historic and unusual 2016 presidential election, votes for the Republican Freeholders were around 43,000. It all depends on voter turnout for this race. Every vote counts!

We have a large territory to cover! We are hoping to raise $5,000 for our race. $100 allows us to copy 1000 walking pieces. We would love to display some yard signs in prominent areas, which cost $10 a piece. If you cannot donate, please like our Facebook page and email us at paigelivingston4freeholder@yahoo.com. We have phonebanking, canvassing, and tabling events planned. We also could use help with people hosting meet and greet events at their houses and with social media support. Thank you!

Christine Lui Chen

Christine Lui Chen

State Senate, LD23

[su_expand link_align=”right” more_icon=”icon: long-arrow-down”]

Christine Lui Chen, is a neuroscientist and healthcare executive on a mission to expand innovation-driven job growth in central Jersey.

Why Christine is running:

Christine Lui Chen, is a neuroscientist and healthcare executive on a mission to expand innovation-driven job growth in central Jersey. She is running for State Senate to stand up to ideological extremism and to bring economic reform. Chen said, “As a business executive, I’ve led large teams to bring life-saving drugs to patients. But in government, we don’t see the same coalition building; we see finger-pointing. That negativity is draining us. Let’s work with good ideas from both parties to fix our broken system.”

Why this election is important:

This year, there are only 2 states with statewide and gubernatorial elections. All eyes will be on the voters of New Jersey and Virginia. With the potential for federal law changes, a strong State legislature will be New Jersey’s last line of defense. The elected Senator’s term is during key Congressional and Legislative redistricting in 2020. Chen is the first woman since in 1987 and the first Asian American to ever run in the general election for NJ Senate in Legislative District 23. Women make up less than 30% of elected officials in NJ. 1 If elected, Chen would be the first Asian-American woman to serve in the New Jersey Senate.

Christine’s Bio:

In March, Chen swept all the key County Democratic Committee endorsements in Somerset, Warren, and Hunterdon Counties. And earned endorsements from Phillipsburg Mayor Steve Ellis and Clinton Mayor Janice Kovach. Chen is qualified for State Senate because of her track record of fiscal responsibility and creating jobs as a healthcare executive. Previously, she was the Chief Operating Officer of NJ’s largest Alzheimer’s and dementia residential care provider and led a team of over 500 employees across 5 states.
