Stufano said he wants to create "safe zones" in the town at schools, school bus stops, parks and other locations where cameras would record footage that residents can then view on their cellphones. He also believes there aren't enough medical facilities in the town. "I would try and see if we could get tax incentives to open urgent cares," he said. He backs taking town facilities off the PSEG grid and installing energy-efficient generators. Stufano wants to end outside contracting, believing that would save the town money. "Why can't we hire more town employees to do the job themselves?" he said. Stufano said the all-Republican board needs a Democrat voice.
