The Bedminster Republican Municipal Committee is proud to announce their candidates for the Bedminster Township Committee for 2022. Township Committeeman, Doug Stevinson, is running for a third, three-year term. Mr. Stevinson has made leadership and local control a guiding theme of his service on the Bedminster Township Committee. He emphasized the importance of the township controlling the affordable housing requirements that still affect the municipality. Local control through zoning and collaborating with potential developers will ensure Bedminster’s growth is not dictated though a court order. Any new affordable housing must be integrated with and complement the surrounding community. He pledged to represent the electorate by providing mature, practical leadership that ensures a high quality of life while keeping property taxes low. Mr. Stevinson, his wife and Board of Education President, Suzie, and their three children live in the Ski Hill neighborhood.
Committeewoman Gina Fernandez is seeking her second term. She is a proven leader on the Committee, where she has used her experience as a union member and manager in a family business to modernize the Township’s Human Relations program. Gina is a teacher in Union Township, and the mother of three. She and her husband, Gus, have been residents of the township since 2006, first residing in the Parkside neighborhood in the Hills before moving to Deer Haven Road. Ms. Fernandez has also improved Bedminster’s Recreation program, working with the new Recreation Director to revive Fall Fest for 2022. Founder of the Hispanic Heritage Club of Union NJ, Ms. Fernandez will continue her work to keep property taxes low, preserve open space, and uphold our tight-knit community.
Bedminster RMC Chair Steve Parker said, “We are proud to nominate two, mature leaders that bring Bedminster values and a record of accomplishment that will ensure the township returns to normalcy with a high quality of life and continued low taxes. We have a good team to lead Bedminster into the future.”
The Republican Primary Election is June 7th.
