Jim Horowitz for Hainesport Township Committee
2018 will be another exciting year! We are delighted to announce that the Democratic candidate for election to Township Committee is Jim Horowitz, pictured above.
James "Jim" Horowitz has lived in Hainesport with his wife, Amy, since 2002. He has two daughters, Rebecca and Rachel. Rebecca attended Hainesport Elementary School from pre-K to 5th grade before receiving an out-of-district placement due to her special needs. Rachel is currently a 3rd grader at Hainesport Elementary School.
Jim graduated Cum Laude from Mercer County Community College with an A.A.S. in Network Engineering. He is employed as a Windows Server Engineer for Dialog Direct, a marketing and customer engagement solution provider.
Jim is a BBQ enthusiast, and is chief cook on a team that competed most recently in the 2018 Que For The Troops BBQ Competition, which benefits the Liberty USO. He hopes to one day open a BBQ restaurant. Jim can occasionally be seen with his family hiking in Long Bridge Park, or walking around the Creekview development, where he lives in Hainesport's District 5.
There are things all candidates pledge to do, such as to keep your taxes as low as possible and promote local businesses. Of course you can count on Jim to do these things! But here are Jim's personal and specific campaign issues!
- To improve township communication and availablility to residents: Jim wants to introduce some form of "Open Door" policy, either face to face or online, so Hainesport residents who can't get to monthly township meetings can have personal contact with him as a Committee member.
- To explore participation in municipal "green" programs: For example, Hainesport is not currently participating in the Sustainable Jersey grants program, although neighboring communities such as Eastampton, Lumberton and Mount Holly do. Jim would make it a priority to get us involved if there are benefits to be reaped.
- To create a Hainesport Chamber of Commerce to attract more businesses.
- To develop a Neighborhood Watch for better security.
