Vasser-McNeal, the president of the Cape May County NAACP, is the granddaughter of Jack Vasser, the first African American to serve as mayor of a town in Cape May County when he led West Cape May.
“My grandfather taught me that living in a community requires that those of us with a shared vision for bettering our community, also share in the responsibility of doing the work,” Vasser-McNeal said in a statement. “I look forward to working for that betterment and serving all residents of our Township.”
Brendan Sciarra, chairman of the CMC Democratic Committee, said he would support Vasser-McNeal and highlighted her leadership, community involvement, and activism in illustrating her ability to represent Middle Township.
Vasser-McNeal and her husband have raised their blended family of biological and adoptive children in Whitesboro for more than 20 years. She earned a degree in social work from Stockton University while building a business and raising a family as a single mom.
Currently, she is a state certified social worker and active realtor. Vasser-McNeal is a business owner and has operated a hair salon in Cape May County for 18 years. She currently serves as an executive board member for Habitat for Humanity, is vice president of Middle Township Democratic Club and advises on the Middle Township Law Enforcement Engagement Committee and County Prosecutorâ€™s Social Justice Committee.
“I’m here to do the work,” Vasser-McNeal said in a statement released Tuesday. “I am dedicated to helping evolve the Township Committee into a leadership group that reflects the makeup of our community and a more thorough vision of what issues are important to our entire community.”
Her involvement allows her to be in tune with the needs of Township residents, a statement released by the Democrat groups said.
