- Grant is a lifelong Montville Township resident.
- Party Line: Democrat
- Age: 66
- Family: Wife Patricia, son Daniel, Daughter Laura Steiner.
- Education background? Attended Montville Schools, Boonton High School and Windham College.
- Why do you think you are qualified for this position? I have more experience than any other Candidate. 15 years on the governing Body, 10 years on the Planning Board, 40 year involvement with my Community. (Grant's campaign website breaks down how he's served Montville and for how many years)
- Why are you running for this elected office? This Township Committee has failed in their responsibilities in a number of area. They fail to have even the basic interest to investigate the issues. As a one party system they have no one questioning their actions.
- What are the three issues that most concern you? Zoning, Planning, Services. Taxes and the use of open space.
- Explain your proposed approach to managing these issues: I have written numerous blogs on Montville Patch. (Readers can learn about Grant's opinions on these issues in his Patch Blog here.)
- What organizations do you belong to? I have also served as a Little League Coach, Sunday School Teacher, Adult Christian Education teacher, Deacon and Elder in my Church, Morris County Democratic Committeeman and when the County called I served as a Democratic Candidate for County or State Office.
