Howell NJ First was founded in 2021 to promote nonpartisan municipal elections. The founders believed this was needed because too often our elected officials put personal and political agendas ahead of the interests of our town - a complaint often expressed by residents. Though unsuccessful with nonpartisan elections, Howell NJ First has grown from being a grassroots effort into a larger community group. Howell NJ First supporters come from all political affiliations who believe in promoting policies that will put Howell and its residents first.
The mission of Howell NJ First is to promote policy changes within our local government that will put the interests of Howell and its residents ahead of personal and political agendas.
The goal of Howell NJ First is to elect officials who will enact policy changes consistent with our mission and for future generations to carry on this mission.
