Chris Weber & Alex Keiser for Township Committee
Meet Alex and Chris.
Chris Weber, an 11-year resident of Springfield, is a retired Newark police officer who was injured in the line of duty. After making a recovery and receiving full retirement, he transitioned into the world of real estate, where both he and his wife are now licensed for KellerWilliams; they have three children and Chris currently coaches girls’ softball in town. “We live in an incredibly safe town,” Weber said, “and I feel blessed that I can raise a family here.” Weber is committed to delivering an equitable return-on-investment for resident tax dollars and looking forward to serving his town.
Alex Keiser is a lifelong Springfield resident and has been involved in government since he was 19 years old. Currently serving as Chief of Staff for Assemblyman John McKeon, Keiser previously worked for Congressman Frank Pallone, as well as the ACLU, and six years later looks forward to his own first run for office. “I may be young, but I see that as a strength,” Keiser stated today. “More millennials are engaged in the political process than ever before, and the truth is that our generation is the future – so it’s time we have a seat at the table.” In addition to helping ensure efficient spending of tax dollars, Keiser is incredibly passionate about the environment, which he sees as vital even at the municipal level. “Over the years, I’ve been able to develop a granular perspective on how everything we do at every level of government affects the planet we live on,” he said, “and I’m committed to maintaining and improving Springfield as the beautiful, resilient town it has always been.”
Weber and Keiser are seeking the formal Democratic nominations in the June 5th primary in order to run in the November 6th, 2018 general election.
