Justin T. Strickland
2023 Candidate Information
Municipality: Chatham Borough
Office: Borough Council
I chose to make Chatham Borough my home after working and traveling across the globe. I can tell you, without hesitation, that Chatham is one of the best places to live in the entire world. I feel incredibly fortunate to be a part of such a special community.
I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Political Science from Texas A&M University and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Saint Leo University. I’m a former Captain in the U.S. Army and an Iraq War Combat Veteran. I served two deployments to Iraq, one as a Platoon Leader and one as an Iraqi Army Advisor, earning a Bronze Star and Army Commendation Medals.
Serving in the military taught me valuable life lessons that helped shape who I am. When deployed to Iraq, I saw how fortunate we are to live in the United States of America. I learned that people are connected in a common humanity. We all care for our families and want the best possible future for the ones we love.
I’m running for Borough Council because I have a passion for public service and for honoring the Americans who contributed to advancing the ideals and values of our great country. I believe it’s important to remember those who fought for our Nation’s Independence, preserved our Union, saved the world during World War II, and stood up for equality during the Civil Rights and Women’s movements.
I want to serve on the Borough Council to help preserve Chatham’s storied history, preserve its stellar reputation as a family focused community, and preserve the pride residents feel for the place they call home.
