One man’s vote of incumbent supervisor in Lumberland

October 30, 2013

Since moving into the Lumberland area in 2004, I’ve seen the town go through its fair share of economic turmoil. Thankfully, the town has seen vast improvements to many of its programs over the past several years—improvements that I attribute to the leadership of Lumberland Supervisor Nadia Rajsz. I usually vote for candidates that are socially liberal but fiscally conservative, so it should not come as a surprise that I’m supporting Ms. Rajsz. Under her leadership, we’ve seen the town’s deficit drop from over $2 million to $1 million (debt was acquired from the previous administration), and she made necessary improvements and upgrades to the town hall, which were done through grants. She has properly represented the Town of Lumberland via her work with various committees throughout the county, including Upper Delaware Scenic Byway, Upper Delaware Council, Sullivan County Economic Development Steering Committee, and the county Transportation Sub-Committee. She reviewed and updated the town’s Emergency Management Plan, which resulted in acquiring a generator for the town’s emergency shelter (again, with much of it being covered through grants).
