Andrews chairs the local Pedestrian Safety Committee and is on the Cranford Fund for Educational Excellence board.  He has held positions in the State and Defense departments and with the National Security Council in both Democratic and Republican administrations, and now runs a management consulting firm that focuses on the Asia-Pacific region,

Miller Prunty has spent two decades  running Cranford’s Downtown and Business Development  department.  She serves with Andrew on the Pedestrian Safety Committee and advocates for transit improvements, including midtown direct train service, as a member of the Raritan Valley Line Mayors Alliance and he Raritan Valley Rail Coalition.

“Cranford has a strong town spirit, active volunteerism, and a vibrant downtown. We’ve benefited tremendously from this amazing community and eager for the opportunity to serve and give back,” said Andrews. “Even with the ‘Best Downtown in New Jersey,’ there is more we can do to improve quality of life, in our neighborhoods and on our commutes.”

Miller Prunty  called Cranford “a wonderful place brimming with potential to be even better as a town that is appealing and convenient for young families as well as empty nesters.”
