We are a suburban family in Cranford, NJ, with special insights into entrepreneurship, immigration, parenting and putting up with the nonsense that New Jersey can uniquely offer.
We own a business and we want it to survive and grow. In NJ. That influences our thinking a lot. We’re not a partisan household (our house can be described as purple), but we want sound choices from grown-ups who understand history enough to not make the same mistakes – regardless of party.
Similar to a small but growing number of Cranford residents, we are transplants from Manhattan. We came here a few years back because of family connections, the good schools, commute options and a downtown with sidewalks that seemed convenient.
For the record, we do like it here. We hope to continue to like it here. And so far, the vast majority of people we met have been pleasant, unpretentious, and seem to appreciate the same things about Cranford that we do.
But no place is perfect, and while Cranford is probably better off than the majority of New Jersey municipalities, it still has many things that could use some attention.
And attention is what we plan to give in our self-appointed role of pundit.
