Originally from NY, Charisse has lived in Piscataway for 6 years. Her daughter attends Piscataway High School, and Charisse supports her in a variety of activities. Charisse has been an active member of the Piscataway Progressive Democratic Organization since its inception because she believes that residents of our community deserve to be respected and heard. She wants elected officials who are accountable and will listen to their constituents. She was a Pop Warner Parents Auxiliary Secretary and her daughter was one of the first pop Warner squads to go to Disney representing Piscataway. A hard-working mom, Charisse knows that Piscataway's strength is in our diversity and she looks forward to representing the residents of Ward 3, District 9.
Sohail "Shawn" Butt
My name is Shawn Butt and I, along with my twin 12 year old boys, call Piscataway our Home. We moved here from Morris County in 2012 and have loved the area and the diversity it presents. My boys have enjoyed the excellent education provided by our community Public Schools and we feel safe and loved in our neighborhoods.
I own and have been running a small IT Business in Whippany/Parsippany since 2004 and understand how proper management can help grow an organization and community, even with limited funds, as long as we're aware of our priorities. I want to bring that experience and run as a committeeman for our community of District 9 in Ward 3 so I can represent how our slice of the neighborhood can benefit from and also give back to the larger Piscataway community.
I plan to stay here for many more years, so I hope to work with everyone to further improve the quality of life for the people currently here and welcome new neighbors.
