Borough Council Candidate: Jill Orlich

Jill Orlich Council Candidate statement

143

My name is Jill Orlich and I am running for Glen Rock Borough Council. I have lived in Glen Rock for 13 years with my husband and our three children. My background, skills, and dedication to this community make me an ideal candidate for Council.

During my career as a litigation attorney in the city, I worked hard to get the best possible results for my clients, just as I will for Glen Rock. I learned the ins and outs of many different businesses and how to advocate for people in different situations. I analyzed budgets, financial statements, and legal documents. All of this experience will serve me well on the Council.

Eventually, I stopped working to do what matters to me most, parenting and being involved in my community. I have volunteered extensively in town, as Byrd HSA president, Girl Scout troop leader, on many school committees, and with organizations in town and in our broader community.

As a Council member, my priority would always be the residents of this town. I will focus on community programming, planning events that would benefit our residents and enhance our sense of community while also bringing customers to our businesses. I would look for ways to minimize costs and bring in revenue to help

reduce taxes. I would maximize our environmental sustainability while also preparing for the challenges climate change will bring.

I hope to earn your vote and to have the opportunity to serve you on Glen Rock’s Borough Council.
