West Deptford, NJ: The West Deptford Democratic Executive Committee today endorsed James Robinson Jr. and Adam Reid as the party’s standard-bearers for the two Township Committee seats on the ballot this fall. After serving two terms on Township Committee, incumbent Democrat Committeewoman Donna Szymborski has decided not to seek re-election.

Robinson is a life-long resident, a Trust Officer and Assistant Vice-President with First State Trust Company, Vice-Chairman of the Zoning Board, and Treasurer of the West Deptford Soccer Association. Reid is also a life-long resident, and is employed as a Land Survey Manager with Stout & Caldwell Engineers. Reid’s grandfather Robert “Bob” Reid served as mayor and member of the Township Committee during the 1960s and 1970s.

The endorsement of Robinson and Reid is the culmination of an expansive search for new candidates begun earlier this year.  Ads were run in both the South Jersey Times and Patch, and over six-thousand email messages were sent urging persons interested in running for office or getting involved in West Deptford government to step forward.

“Taxpayers deserve open and effective government in West Deptford, two things in short supply under the current Republican administration. The Democratic Party has thrown open the doors and invited broader participation in local government.  We are seeking the next generation of leaders that believe in a positive future for West Deptford. Jim and Adam are young, capable, homegrown leaders who will partner with Committeewoman Denice DiCarlo in getting West Deptford back on a positive track.” stated Democratic Party Chairman Jerry White.

“I look forward to meeting the voters face to face, hearing directly from them how local government can best meet their needs and how they want their tax dollars spent. If elected, I’ll make decisions based on what is best for West Deptford taxpayers”, stated Jim Robinson.

“My family has deep roots in West Deptford and its’ a real honor to run for office in this great township. I am disturbed by the hyper-partisan way the Cianfarini Republicans are running our local government. We need to put politics aside and do what is best for the township.” said Adam Reid.
