I write in support of the team of Summer Jones, Donna Coallier, and Bob Zuckerman, the logical choice in the upcoming elections for Village Board of Trustees.
Having spent some time as an employee in the Montclair State University (MSU) IT Department, I was a witness to Summer Jones using her vast knowledge of the tech industry to modernize and facilitate the integration of technology towards improving the quality of student/faculty life. Summer led the initiative on a multimillion-dollar technology budget at MSU, one of the premier colleges in New Jersey, and I am convinced that her leadership skills and knowledge of the rapidly changing technology sector would be an asset to the Village of South Orange.
Among Ms. Jones’ other qualities is her willingness to listen to and consider alternative points of view, and her awareness of what the social responsibility of a resident of the Village ought to be; in her case, leading by example.
Summer has an excellent blend of inter-personal skills, leadership qualities, as well as a firm grasp on technology, tools that can help usher South Orange into an age of much needed unity and prosperity. Going forward, it is vital to keep up with the ever-changing technological landscape, and with Summer’s insight, I believe South Orange will be ahead of the curve.
