I would like to congratulate Councilman Pedroso in retaining his seat on the Bridgewater Council. I wish him all the best in the future as I am sure he will do his best for Bridgewater. I would like to thank the Bridgewater Democratic Committee who worked tirelessly on my campaign. I learned so much in these last few months and your efforts are deeply appreciated. Finally I would like to thank the residents of Bridgewater for their support and vote of confidence. I intend to stay engaged, working in the community to maintain and improve the quality of life in Bridgewater New Jersey. Sincerely, Bill Metz

If I were a betting man, I'd bet he remains as "engaged" as he was before he agreed to take the bullet for the BWT Democrats.
