First 100 Days

Full Time Mayor

As Mayor, Sam Joshi would serve Full-Time to address the growing challenges Edison is faced with. Our ailing infrastructure, outdated Master Plan, and absence of long term vision require a Mayor to be fully committed to serving the needs of the fifth largest town.

A New Master Plan

A Master Plan is a blueprint for a long-term Township vision. Edison's comprehensive Master Plan was last adopted over 30 years ago. The world has drastically changed since and it's time for a forward-thinking approach to our growth plans. Joshi's vision for Edison includes community-centric neighborhoods where residents of all ages can utilize a recreational area that also serves as their neighborhood's landmark. Examples of Sam Joshi's vision are provided in the videos of the "Vision" tab. With a background in public policy, Joshi is ready to shape our future.

Tax Stabilization

High property taxes are crushing family finances. Joshi has consistently voted against property tax increases. Joshi will prioritize cost savings and new revenues outside of residential property taxes.
