Dr. Arati Kreibich and Amy Martin defy such categorization, however. I’ve gotten to know them in recent months and, in that time, they managed to touch this cynical writer’s heart. For Amy and Arati, public service isn’t a hobby or a leisure pursuit they’ve deemed worthy of their attention only upon retirement. It is a calling. When you hear them speak, you hear their genuine commitment to improving the lives of the people of our community. These two down-to-earth, hard-working moms know that Glen Rock is a wonderful town, but they’re not afraid to call attention to the places where we fall short. Nor are they afraid to roll up their sleeves and tackle our problems head-on, researching, debating and collaborating with others to figure out solutions on issues ranging from tax concerns to public safety.
I can’t wait to see Amy reelected to the Town Council and Arati make her debut. They make an inspiring team and represent the best of Glen Rock. They’re who I want on the borough council and who I’ll be voting for next month. I hope you’ll consider doing the same.
