One of the races people will be watching today is Lower Township’s 1st ward. Incumbent Tom Conrad faces two independents in Janet Pitts and Joseph Will. Pitts is supported by the Lower Township Taxpayer’s Association, of which she was the former president. Conrad has been running on the platform of being apart of council that produced a zero tax increase last budget year. Pitts is on the mayor’s advisory board. Whoever wins will go a far way in deciding how council is run in the near future.
