Profile of Candidate for Ward 4
Leon J. Schachter
schachter.jpgI have had one heck of a good time representing the residents of Ward 4 during the past six years. I enjoy a cooperative working relationship with the Mayor and other Council members, which has led to many tangible accomplishments beneficial for Ward 4 residents. During my tenure, Ward 4 has benefited from much needed improvements to Boyd Park, re-surfacing of streets, new curbs, a new traffic light on Columbia Park Road, street lighting, stop signs, renovations to HUD properties, and less litter! I will continue to press for additional cleanup, including streets on our immediate borders such as Marblewood. I can also guarantee every resident of Ward 4 living on either side of Route 50 that I will pay very close attention to any proposal for development of the Metro station. I will work in close cooperation with the 4th Ward Civic Association and the Metro development task force appointed by the Mayor and Council. My goal is to assure that a carefully planned and measured development will make all of our property values continue to go up without changing the fundamental characteristics of Cheverly, so that no resident would be forced to sell or be left behind.

I have lived in Cheverly, at first as a bachelor and later with my wife (Rose), two kids (Elizabeth and Sam), our dog Gus, and our cat (Duncan) for the past 25 years, and have been proud to call 10 Cheverly Circle home for the past 7 years. I enjoy being a spectator at my children's sporting events in Town and love to paddle the Cheverly Ward 4 Queen (my twoperson kayak) on local rivers. I earn a living as the Director of the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals and was formerly its Chief Administrative Judge.
