Denise Koetas-Dale, a democratic candidate for Chesterfield Township Committee, is holding a fundraising campaign event tonight at the Crosswicks Community House.

The event, paid for by “Koetas-Dale for Township Committee”, invited residents of the township to RSVP by August 17th to support Koetas-Dale in her run for Twp Committee. Republican Incumbent Jeremy Liedtka, and Republican Candidate and former Committeeman Ron Kolczynski are also running.

The fundraiser is billed as a joint event, featuring both Democratic Candidates for Township Committee, but fellow candidate Agnes Marsala was in a serious car accident in early July, and according to Koetas-Dale, Marsala is “having a very difficult recovery.”

Marsala is also the President of People Over Pipelines, a local action group to stop or slow the progress of the SRL Pipeline and compressor station in our area. POP tells WBNC News that in Marsala’s absence, the leadership of the organization continues with Rita Romeu (POP Vice President and Chesterfield Twp Committeewoman) and Martha Vaselka (declared candidate for Pinelands Commission).

WBNC News will be broadcasting live video on Election Night in November.
