My name is Stephen Skellenger, and I’m writing what is my first Letter to the Editor to emphatically endorse Dawn Fantasia and Josh Hertzberg for Sussex County Freeholder. With these two, you are going to get uniquely-qualified individuals who exemplify servant leadership.Josh is someone who seems to me to be a person who would give the shirt off his back to help anyone. That’s something that is sorely missing in politics today. We have too many individuals who forget that they were elected to serve the public, not the other way around. Josh is a strong fiscal conservative who will be able to use his experience as Mayor of Sparta and as a federal agent to tackle the problems that face Sussex County.\Dawn is one of the most dedicated public servants this county has ever seen. I have had the pleasure of being Dawn’s past running mate and serving alongside her for the past two years on the Franklin Borough Council. Honestly, there isn’t someone I feel is more qualified to serve on Freeholder Board. While serving on the Franklin Council, she has been an integral part of ensuring that our municipal tax rate has either declined or stayed at zero, and I strongly believe that she will be able to replicate this at the county level. Dawn is someone that will not back away from a fight and will always do the right thing. She’s not in this for anything else but to improve the lives of every single Sussex County resident.On June 5th, I ask that you join me in supporting Fantasia and Hertzberg for Freeholder. They will absolutely serve the residents with an honest, respectful, and fiscally conservative approach to eliminate wasteful county spending.Stephen SkellengerFranklin BoroughEditor's Note: Stephen Skellengerr is a councilman in Franklin Borough and the vice chairman of the Sussex County Young Republicans, These opinions are his and his alone and do not necessarily reflect the above mentioned organizations.
