A Third Ward Councilor in Montclair and New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) leader, Spiller formally announed his mayoral candidacy earlier this month.
“I’m proud of the progress we’ve made together. Hand – in – hand, we stood up for working families and finally made paid sick leave in Montclair a reality. We did our part for our climate by passing a ban on single use plastic bags. We invested in our future by increasing funding for our library and Pre-K. And, together we sent a message to Washington DC that everyone has a place in Montclair, including our undocumented neighbors.
“We’ve made great strides, but there’s still much to be done,” said the candidate. “Over the course of the next few months, I look forward to meeting with residents, exchanging ideas and sharing my vision for how we can continue to preserve the things that make Montclair special. By working together, I’m confident we can create a bright future for the town we all love.”
