Focus on our community, first -- Sonia Ron

Hello, my name is Sonia Ron and I am running for Washington Borough Council. I want to tell you a little about myself. 

I have lived here in the Borough for over twenty years and our boys have attended the local schools, played sports, and made lifelong friends here. The things that affect you affect my family too. I love and have enjoyed all that Warren County can offer. I want better roads, better snow removal, and I worry about the constantly growing drug use in our county. In other words, your concerns are mine too. 

I want to start a program with the police department and for our youth to start a positive relationship based on trust rather than fear. I am not a politician; I am just like you and my concerns are your concerns. I have been saying over and over that I stand on community first, politics second and I truly believe that. 

My interest in this community; our community. Our focus should be on what unites us rather on what separates us. This horrible pandemic, COVID 19, has shown us that. I have seen neighbors reach out to neighbors that they have not talked to in years, come together, and simply ask “How are you? Just wanted to say hi and see how you’re doing.” 

I have seen our community also support each other during this time of uncertainty, when the color of a man’s skin has set other communities on fire it has brought unity and support in ours. I was reminded of this when we had our first meeting in support of racial equality down town. I have seen neighbors sharing resources with one another. I have seen neighbors drop off groceries when we knew there was need. This is our community; no one can tell me that its not who we are. 

I believe in this town and its people; because I know you. You are my friends and my neighbors. And because of this and all these things I will work with both Republicans and Democrats to continue to make a better life for your family and mine. 

I need your vote. Remember, our community comes first, politics is, and always should be, second.
