Videos of the Board of Commissioners Candidate Forum, held on Monday, April 12 and sponsored by the Haddonfield Civic Association, may be viewed on the Association’s website, HERE.
There are separate videos for the opening statements, each of nine questions posed to the eight candidates, and closing statements.
The questions, asked of the candidates in random order by Janet Fisher-Hughes, the moderator provided by the League of Women Voters, were:

Question 2: Of the three commission seats – public works, public safety, and finance – with which of these areas do you think your strengths most closely align?
Question 3: What are your plans for improving infrastructure in town, such as fixing deteriorating roads and curbs or upgrading and modernizing borough-owned buildings?
Question 4: What will you do to improve Haddonfield’s sustainability plan?
Question 5: As commissioner what are your plans for providing tax savings to residents through shared services, cost savings, and/or revenue generation?
Question 6: What will you do as commissioner to improve communication, community engagement, and increase transparency of town decisions and actions? As commissioner would you publicly get behind a pledge to record and post all public meetings?
Question 7: One issue facing the township is the resolution of the former Bancroft site. What are your priorities and vision for the site?
Question 8: What is your position on the land swap between the Board of Education and the Borough to make Radnor Field Green Acres space?
Question 9: Many residents in town are concerned with the speeding that constantly takes place on the main roads and many of the connecting residential streets. What will you do about this ongoing problem?
