Incumbent Councilwoman/Local Pop Warner Prez Runs with Holley
Today, two-term Third Ward Councilwoman Cynthia Johnson (pictured) has announced she will be joining the slate of Former Roselle Mayor Jamel Holley.
Cynthia Johnson was first elected to the Roselle Borough Council in 2017, where she won off the line with an overwhelm majority. She was re-elected for a second term in 2020.
“While the politics of Roselle may have changed over time, my priorities for serving our Third Ward Residents have not. I have always been intentional about placing the residents of Roselle first and will never waiver from that commitment. I look forward to continuing my public service and am really excited about partnering with Jamel Holley as he pursue his return to the helm of leadership in our beloved Borough.”
“Our overall plan for the community will not only benefit the now, but the future, with residents and Roselle stakeholders at the center.”
Councilwoman Johnson has been a dedicated business owner and job creator, having several successful entities including Sisters of Soul Restaurant, Savannah’s Soul Cuisine and now her newest venture, You So Souped & Salads. “My business background has contributed significantly to redeveloping blighted areas and bringing quality businesses to Roselle for our residents and surrounding communities. We will overhaul the entire redevelopment of Roselle and make it a more attractable community for all.”
“Cynthia has a tremendous record for standing up for the residents of Roselle. This is why she has been elected twice and I am looking forward to her partnership for our Roselle Revitalization that is so necessary,” says Holley.
Rounding out the Team Holley slate is Stan Cunningham, President of the local Pop Warner Football Program and a professional mental health manager for a state nonprofit agency.
“The Borough of Roselle has incredible potential but lacks leadership at the moment to be able to reach our full potential. Mayor Holley, Councilwoman Cynthia Johnson and I will connect what is disconnected and put Roselle on a path of success long-term”, says Cunningham.
“We will make Roselle more affordable, return resources directly back to taxpayers, and will ensure recreation services for seniors, children and families will be permanent,” continues Cunningham. “Our redevelopment plan will focus on attracting quality businesses and bring underdeveloped areas to life. Infrastructure and improvements to our flooded areas will be immediately addressed and our parks will be restored and maintained. Public Safety Departments will not have to worry about resources and will receive adequate funding to protect and assist our residents. Communication is at an all-time low with this Borough administration and the residents deserve so much better. We will work as a team to deliver quality and consistent communication immediately.”
