Count on Proven Leadership

The upcoming Township Council election isn’t about politics, it’s about government.

Czekay and Kochan have the experience to know what governing means. Frank and Lauren will build on past success as they look to the future to ensure Medford remains the one of the best and most affordable places to live and raise a family.
