Pennsauken Unified, the campaign of Lisa Eckel and Sabrina Winkler for Pennsauken Township Committee have launched their campaign web site www.pennsaukenunified.com. “For over 35 years, Pennsauken has been led by a single political party, with many elected officials holding Township Committee positions for multiple terms in addition to positions in other local entities like Pennsauken Sewerage Authority and the School District. Is it in the best interest of the residents to have one party with such a strong hold? We have seen the changes that have occurred over the years, both good and bad, and we believe that now is the time for change. While there are some great things about Pennsauken, we feel we can bring a different perspective and fresh ideas while contributing towards positive changes in our town and our Government” says Eckel and Winkler.
Eckel and Winkler are focused on, among other issues, increased transparency in Pennsauken Township government, improvements in technology used to communicate with residents, job openings and board and committee openings being widely publicized and easily accessible for qualified residents to apply, increased community involvement and volunteerism, an increase in community events. a feasibility study done to study the possibility of a community center in Pennsauken and a partnership between the township and local businesses to promote economic development in Pennsauken”
“We want to get involved in our town and give back to the community that we love. We hope that you will give us the opportunity to bring a fresh perspective and new ideas to our township government. For the last 3 decades there have only been 17 different members of Township committee, it’s mostly the same people over and over. Only 3 have been women, and only ONE political party has been represented. It is Time for Change!” says Eckel and Winkler.
