Building a Better Bernardsville

Experience, Enthusiasm, & Engagement.

With the tenure and experience Dr. Jeff Hammond has as councilmember from the past 3 years along with his evidence-based decision making as a surgeon, the enthusiasm from Christina Balas' take on local government and how her career in commercial real estate strategy implementation can be tapped, and the engagement that Dr. Matt Marino has proven as a unanimously selected new councilmember and his career in education and administration, this team will continue to BUILD A BETTER BERNARDSVILLE for all its residents.
