On today’s episode of The Brian Nichols Show, Tara Murphy (candidate for Branchburg Township Committee, NJ) joins the program to outline what issues she’s focusing on during her candidacy, namely how she is taking on career politicians who have grown deaf to the needs and concerns of their constituents.
“I’ve lived in my town [Branchburg, NJ) for about 11 years. And more and more every year, there’s more building and less open space in the town.
And we get a lot of flooding because of it. And this is usually brushed off by the current township administration.
So I’m running for township committee this year against two Republican incumbents prioritizing open space and freedom for residents over the overdevelopment – both commercial and residential in the town, which is causing flooding. The town has been run by Republicans for at least 25 years, maybe longer. And there are no term limits.
…last year, the mayor told me that businesses were more important than residents. In 2020, the township overturned a marijuana referendum, saying that the people did not know what they were voting for when they voted to legalize marijuana. The township also regularly disregards the master plan for building and grants variances very, very easily.
So that is why I’m running for township this year.”
