MIDDLE TOWNSHIP – Rio Grande resident Melanie Collins has submitted a letter of intent seeking the Middle Township Republican Party’s endorsement as its candidate for Township Committee.

Her campaign made an official announcement of her candidacy last week.

Collins, a Middle Township High School graduate, holds a master’s degree in public administration from Marist College and teaches computer and finance courses at Middle Township High School.

She was elected as a county GOP committee member in 2012 and served as treasurer for Mayor Dan Lockwood’s reelection bid. She is also a member of the Middle Township Zoning Board.

Collins said her work in the campaigns of Lockwood and Committeeman Tim Donohue inspired her to throw her hat in the ring.

“I share Tim Donohue and Dan Lockwood’s vision for a better Middle Township.” Collins said in a press release. “I hope to join them in continuing their mission to bring smarter, rightsized and openly responsive government to Town Hall. Having campaigned side by side with both candidates in the last two years, I understand the hard work and dedication needed to win a local election. The time has come for me to lead by example. What better example is there than to serve?”
