Hello Mount Olive my name is Jordan Bernstein and I am running for town Council. For the past five years, my wife, three daughters, and I have lived in Mount Olive. I have come to truly love Mount Olive, I know it will be my home for a long time. My deep appreciation for this town is why I have decided to run for town Council.
Mount Olive is already a wonderful township to live in, and we can make it even better. We need a town council that is proactive, transparent, and accessible to all. I believe our town council should represent the diversity of our residents in our great town. We need to be fighting to keep Mount Olive affordable for everyone, whether you’re a homeowner or a renter.
I’ve seen how Covid has affected our town, and right now we’re not doing enough to uplift the township in the aftermath . I see the empty store-fronts, I see people worried about what the end of the eviction and foreclosure moratorium means for their family, and I see how we’ve lost a sense of togetherness during this isolation. So far, we’ve opportunities to bring in new business and new jobs. I want to work proactively to attract more small businesses and reinvigorate Mount Olive’s economy.
As a candidate, I value the input of every member of our community. On the Town Council, I would do more to involve residents in the decisions being made for our town. Everyone should have a say in the future of Mount Olive, not just big companies and select elites.
I want our town to be an open and inviting place for all regardless of race, religion, gender identity, age or income. We need to have a town council that is as diverse and representative as the people of Mount Olive. I will work to make sure that every voice is heard and respected.
We need to be doing more not only to keep Mount Olive an excellent place to live, but to make sure it stays that way. So, on November 2nd, vote for Jordan Bernstein and the New Voices of the Vote Mount Olive Team
