Bernards Township Committee Primary Candidate: Sophia Chadda

I have lived in Bernards Township for 20 years, raised my three children here and have been practicing as a board certified periodontist in town for the last 15 years. I graduated from Barnard College, Columbia University and went to dental school at State University of New York Buffalo and then completed my Periodontal residency at University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey which is now Rutgers University. While in dental school, I researched the connection between dental disease and Cardiovascular Disease.

I am also a former assistant professor of periodontics at Rutgers Dental School and have held leadership positions in my professional organizations and societies. I am the past president of the Tri-County Dental Society of NJ and the past treasurer of the New Jersey Society of Periodontists. I have been awarded Top Dentist by New Jersey Monthly magazine in 2014 and 2015. I am a local small business owner. I am on the board of trustees of a nonprofit organization called the International Foundation for Progress which provides free education and healthcare for 175 children in Pakistan with a goal of supporting children in impoverished countries worldwide.

Sophia Chadda, this year's Democratic candidate for Bernards Township Committee, outlined her position before a group of supporters at her official campaign launch earlier this month, saying she believes the committee needs "different voices including diverse ones."

Speaking at the picnic pavilion at Pleasant Valley Park, Chadda said she would like to see local government that is "more inclusive, transparent and communicates better with the residents of this town about the issues."

“I am running for Township Committee because I would like to see a local government that is proactive when it comes to making decisions about affordable housing, taxes, improved sustainability, and supporting local businesses, while communicating more openly with the residents about these issues,” Chadda said. “As a local small business owner, a periodontist and a mom with children in three different stages in life, I can offer a fresh perspective and a different skill set than what the town may be used to. My science background drives an evidence-based and collaborative approach to facing challenges head on.”

Chadda to kick off campaign in Basking Ridge

“I want to be a driving force for creating a positive vision for our town and making it a reality,” said Chadda. “Bernards Township needs strong, highly qualified leadership as we embark on three new housing development projects and consider the future of the Millington Quarry. 

"Rather than react to challenges that arise, I would like to incorporate a more proactive and collaborative approach to creating a vision for land use in our town,'' she said. "I would also like to improve our township’s sustainability practices by encouraging the use of reusable bags and limiting single-use plastics. We are in a position to be leaders in taking care of our town, rather than waiting for the state mandates like the ones we have seen in New York. I am eager to jump in and look forward to working with all residents on the future vision of our town.”
