To the editor:

This November election is not only about federal, state and county positions, but involves a seat on the West Windsor Township Council.

Unlike the other races, the West Windsor town government is thankfully non-partisan. I feel very strongly that one of the candidates, Councilwoman Jyotika Bahree, embodies that spirit. She will continue to both move our town forward and protect it from outside interests. I urge you to vote for her and support her in any way possible.

Jyotika has been serving on council for more than a year, and during that time she has worked diligently on issues that matter the most to our quality of life in West Windsor: preventing large scale residential development, minimizing the impact of affordable housing decisions, increasing open space and improving our infrastructure. She has started an initiative to combat the major vaping problem in our schools. We need her experience and willingness to work with the mayor and all members of council on these important matters.

I have personally worked with Jyotika on several environmental projects. She approaches everything intelligently, analytically and does her own research. She has no axe to grind or political party to please with grandstanding but comes to her own conclusions based on facts. Jyotika is an independent thinker.

I hope you will join me in voting for Jyotika on November 6.
