Councilwoman Steward


Sarah Steward has served on the Ewing Township Council since 2013 and was re-elected in 2018 and 2022 to four-year terms. Sarah is a lifelong Ewing resident, a proud product of the Ewing Public Schools and magna cum laude graduate from Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, PA with a double major in Government and Psychology. In 2019, Sarah received her Master’s degree in Public Administration from Rutgers University.

Sarah serves as the Chief Executive Officer at HomeFront, a non-profit agency dedicated to ending family homelessness and breaking the cycle of poverty for families in Central New Jersey. Previously, Ms. Steward served as Deputy Chief of Staff and District Director for Congressman Rush Holt. She is a cantor at Our Lady of Good Counsel church, an avid baker and runner, and enjoys singing alto in the Central Jersey Choral Society.


In my view, government is what we can accomplish better together than separately. Like all municipalities we have challenges to face but I am proud to be part of this community and am excited by the progress I continue to see around us. I look forward to continuing to work to improve delivery of municipal services and improve communications with residents, and I take seriously the duty to invest your tax dollars wisely.

In local government we are responsible for our community’s most immediate needs. Does someone pick up the trash when you leave it at the curb? Do you feel safe in your home? If an emergency happened, would there be enough first responders to assist? Are our homes built safely? Are we attracting the kind of residential and commercial development we need for a thriving community? Do the kids have access to parks, ball fields, and recreation opportunities? When there’s a blizzard, do you need to worry about plowing out your own neighborhood? Are we building our community in a sustainable way?

Recently, from my house I could hear fire alarms and sirens raging. A home was on fire and dozens of first responders – police, fire, and EMTs – were racing to save life and property. Before the flames were even extinguished, neighbors had come together to support the family that lost their home. To me, that’s what it’s about. Being in a community isn’t about partisanship or politics or budgets or votes. It’s about living in a community where we care for one another.

To be very clear, I am not in any way taking credit for all the things I mentioned here. I am not a firefighter or a code official or a teacher or a public works employee. All the things I mentioned are the work of us, together: our community, our excellent Township employees, police, fire, and EMTs, our volunteer fire companies, our leaders on boards and commissions, our nonprofit and business partners, our School Board and so many others. Together, we build the community we want to live in. Being on council is an opportunity to support all of these efforts and bring whatever resources we can to better our township.

I’m grateful for the chance to continue to serve on council and even more grateful to everyone who makes our community possible.

As we chart Ewing’s path forward, I invite your feedback and welcome your participation in your government. Even more than just welcoming it – we need it in order to do our jobs properly. I look forward to hearing from you.
