Nicholas R. (Nick) Whitney

Candidate for Plymouth Township Council Ward 1

I come from a family with deep roots in the Black Horse section of Plymouth Township – the historic heart of Ward 1. I have a passion for serving the people of that community and all of Plymouth.

I’m a proud graduate of the Colonial School District. I’m also a recent college graduate now working as a teacher. I love working with young people and seeing the pleasure and pride they take in learning. 

I view my role as both a privilege and a responsibility. I see every day how important it is to create a civic environment where the children in our community can grow intellectually and thrive personally, as the Plymouth community helped me to do. 

I have extensive experience in managing information technology – both hardware and software -and appreciate how important IT is for education and community service. Building on progress Plymouth Council has recently made, I intend to focus on policies that make advanced IT more available both for our local government and schools, so we can serve and communicate with you more efficiently.

I will bring a strong work ethic to Council. I started out as a cashier at our local BJs as a young teen and held the job throughout my high-school years. During my college career, I worked as a tutor, a technology intern and a debate coach. I believe in the value of work. It helped me to understand the needs of a wide range of people from all walks of life, and I will work in Council to promote policies that create economic opportunities for our youth.

Drawing in on my deep heritage in this community and passion for service, I pledge to be an energetic advocate in Council for the people of Ward 1 and for all residents of Plymouth Township.
