Meet Monica Perkowski

Change Fuels Progress

West Orange was a natural choice for my parents years ago. For a family that required two incomes, this township provided access to an affordable home, walkability to schools, assistance with childcare with free, full day summer camp at the local park, and a plethora of sporting and recreation activities. When it was time for my husband and I to purchase a home,West Orange was an easy choice and I seek an opportunity to ensure others have the same experience.  
 
My career in marketing launched after college in the insurance industry,and I’ve remained in financial services through its duration.  My degree helped round out my knowledge of finance, and build the negotiation, collaboration, and project management skills required to work successfully through various roles.  My experience has included market analysis and insight, brand management, public relations, business and product development, and budget oversight.
 
Community involvement started early for me, and I’ve always dreamed of serving our town as an elected representative.  Today I am active member of many community organizations and hope to use this
experience to help shape the WO of tomorrow.

I live at home with my husband Jim, two stepsons Evan & Charles, and our 5-year-old Labradoodle Eli, who you’ll often catch walking down Main Street.  
 
I believe West Orange continues to be at a critical juncture, and together I know we can succeed.
