OUR 2015 REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES
2015 MIDDLESEX BOROUGH REPUBLICAN PLATFORM ON ISSUES
FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY – Effectively Managing Our Municipal Taxes
The Middlesex Borough Republican Team is committed to providing efficient, quality effective municipal services with the lowest possible impact on our municipal tax structure.
Unlike the past Democratic controlled Mayor and Council; Robert Sherr, Nancy Purcell-Holmes and Melissa Fedosh, will establish zero based budgeting and long term planning that has been absent under democrat control.
They will require full justification of all budgetary requests to fully establish the efficiency and effectiveness of municipal programs.
They will actively seek out Federal, State and County grants; and continually review services to ascertain where shared services can further reduce local tax dollars.
They will work to effectively improve the borough’s bond rating by adhering to a long-range capital improvement program.
They will invest in energy efficient programming to save our tax dollars. Past Democratic leadership has always talked of investing in solar energy and green initiatives; we will get the job done!
MEETING THE NEEDS OF OUR BUSINESS COUMMUNITY
The Middlesex Borough Republican Team knows that our local business community has not been dealt with fairly by the current Democrat controlled leadership.
As Mayor, Robert Sherr will propose integrating our Planning and Zoning Boards to streamline new development and reduce the costs of providing professional staff to both boards.
Robert Sherr, Nancy Purcell-Holmes and Melissa Fedosh, will also finally establish a realistic Redevelopment Plan that meets the current needs of our Borough.
They will work to have the governing body and our professional staff to review all ordinances and regulations to make sure that are up-to-date, do not provide for unnecessary regulation, and are appropriately interpreted.
Under the current Administration it has been almost two years of endless meetings with the business community to come up with a fair an equitable sewer ordinance that addresses the concerns of all involved. A new sewer ordinance should fair to all parties (residents & businesses).
Robert Sherr, Nancy Purcell-Holmes and Melissa Fedosh, will establish a new Business and Economic Development Committee committed to encouraging the growth of new business in our community; and working with our existing business community to make our municipal services more user friendly. We will work to establish programming aimed at addressing the ever-increasing vacancy of our business community.
MAINTAINING PUBLIC SAFETY
The Middlesex Borough Republican Team is committed to keeping our community safe.
That is why they will work closely with our Police Department, Fire Department, Office of Emergency Management and Rescue Squad to see that they have the resources and means to keep our borough safe.
Robert Sherr, Nancy Purcell-Holmes and Melissa Fedosh, and will work with our Police Department, Board of Health, and the Middlesex Board of Education to provide programming aimed as addressing the ever-increasing drug problem in our community.
The Republican team will work with our Board of Health and with the Middlesex County Health Department to expand community health education and environmental programming aimed at addressing our public health well being.
They will continue to support and work with the Green Brook Flood Control Project to address long-term control of flooding.
They will also continue the program initiated by Robert Sherr when he was Mayor, to seek out Federal, and State funding to buy out those properties severely impacted by continued flooding. They will work closely with our Office of Emergency Management to assure that we are adequately prepared for flooding or any emergency impacted our community.
ENHANCE MUNICIPAL SERVICES
The Middlesex Borough Republican Team will work tirelessly to provide the most efficient, effective municipal services for our tax dollars.
Robert Sherr, Nancy Purcell-Holmes and Melissa Fedosh, will work closely with a Professional Administrator to establish goals and objectives for all our municipal departments to eliminate wasteful spending and discontinue ineffective programming while expanding those services meeting and exceeding their program goals.
They are committed to establish a short-term, and long-term plan for each municipal department. They will work to develop a Borough Organizational Chart to provide for clear line of authority, update existing job descriptions, and develop / implement evaluation tools to effectively improve our municipal services.
They will work with our Municipal Department of Aging and Senior Services to expand services to a wider segment of our senior population.
They will work with our Recreation Department to develop a master plan to address all programming, fields, and resources.
They will work to establish an improved relationship with the Middlesex Board of Education to coordinate within areas of mutual concern.
They will work closely with our Middlesex County Freeholders, and State Representatives to make sure that our residents are receiving all the services and representation that we deserve.
Robert Sherr, Nancy Purcell-Holmes and Melissa Fedosh will work to establish a citizen friendly culture at Borough Hall.
RESTORING CONFIDENCE IN GOVERNMENT
The Middlesex Democratic leadership always talks of “Restoring Confidence In Government” that they control. They talk of cutting wasteful spending and improving municipal services, WHY HAVEN’T THEY?
To date, the Democratic controlled governing body has spent the last two years trying to hire a Professional Administrator; WHY CAN’T THEY GET IT DONE?
The Middlesex Borough Republican Team is committed to hiring a Professional Administrator to effectively run the day-to-day operations of the Borough.
The Republican Team of Robert Sherr, Nancy Purcell-Holmes and Melissa Fedosh, will also propose televising governing body meetings to make our government more transparent to our residents. They will work closely with our Professional Administrator to assure residents that our Borough Website is informative, easy to navigate and kept up-to-date.
ROBERT SHERR, NANCY PURCELL-HOLMES and MELISSA FEDOSH, have served the Borough of Middlesex for many years. They are concerned that the decisions made by the DEMOCRATS WHO HAVE HAD CONTROL OVER THE LAST 41 of 45 YEARS are endangering the future of the Borough. 2015 is a pivotal year for the Borough and voters will have to make a choice as to the path taken. We will bring the HONEST, REPONSIVE and DEDICATED government Middlesex Borough needs to keep our citizens safe, our infrastructure sound, and essential services intact while keeping our taxes under control.
AFTER 41 YEARS OF DEMOCRAT CONTROL MIDDLESEX BOROUGH DESERVES A CHANGE!

course. The Middlesex Republicans must be agents for positive
margin between victory and defeat is small. More than ever every
vote counts. We need to stay involved in the actions of government
and hold them accountable by our power to vote.
borough wants leaders with integrity. The public trust is something
you earn by your actions not given just because of an oath of office.

opened, odors and stenches eliminated, ordinances followed and our
