Historical Society to Host Mayor of Jersey City
WESTFIELD — Mayor Brett Schundler of Jersey City, the first
Republican to hold the office since 1917, will address members and guests of the We s t f i e l d Historical Society on the subject of history and government at its annual dinner on Wednesday, June 2, at the Echo Lake Country Club in Westfield.
The gathering will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a reception and business meeting followed by dinner at 7 p.m.
In office since November 1992, Mayor Schundler has worked to implement an Urban Improvement Agenda focusing on three issues: Community Policing, School Choice and Lower Taxes.
Nationally, Mayor Schundler is known for leading the fight for parental
choice in education and as a defender of religious liberty. He led the successful fight to pass Charter School Legislation in New Jersey, and he won a United States Federal Court of Appeals Decision that protects religious expression against government domination.
Prior to becoming Mayor of the second largest municipality in the state, he was Executive Assistant to a Democratic congressman and a field coordinator for Gary Hart’s 1984 Presidential Campaign. He then built a career in the securities industry at Salomon Brothers and C.J. Lawrence, an economics research firm.
He became a Republican in 1991. Mayor Schundler grew up in Westfield and was an All-State Football lineman at Westfield High School. He graduated from Harvard University.
For more information about the meeting or to reserve a space at the dinner, call Robert E. Miller, Vice PresidentMembership for the Historical Society at (908) 233-6360. the car. The officers have been instructed
to issue tickets, not just warnings, he added.
Research has shown, Patrolman Hoelzel said, that drivers retain the message when a ticket has been issued.
Both the passing out of brochures and the issuing of tickets will continue through Memorial Day.
Westfield police also plan to participate in the program, but were still working on plans earlier this week. Fanwood police will be passing out literature in the downtown business area and will run information about the seatbelt law on Channel 35.
In New Jersey, child passenger law requires all children riding in a vehicle under age 5 to be protected in a safety belt or child restraint system appropriate for their size. The fine for failing to comply with this law is $42, plus court costs.
It also requires all drivers and front seat passengers to wear properly adjusted and fastened safety belts, and
makes the driver responsible for securing any front seat passenger who is between the ages of 5 and 18.
An adult who is not wearing a seatbelt in New Jersey cannot be stopped, but if you are stopped for another suspected motor vehicle violation and are not wearing a seatbelt, you can be cited on a secondar offense and be charged $20, plus court costs.
“Because adults are breaking the law, children are being crippled and killed in car crashes every day,” said Janet Dewey, Executive Director of the Air Bag & Seat Belt Safety Campaign.
“Every child in the nation should be protected by being properly restrained. That’s why we are calling for zero tolerance for drivers with unbuckled kids in every state every day of the year,” she said.
Despite laws requiring children to ride buckled up, 6 out of 10 children killed in crashes are unbuckled, according to information from the Air Bag & Seat Belt Safety Campaign.

1008-99 will bring back the ordinance passed in 1998 which gave council members unvouchered reimbursement of $1,200 annually, and the Mayor $2,400.
Mr. Post also noted that because the petition met all legal requirements, the salary ordinance was never carried out. Instead, the original ordinance from 1998 has been enforced since then.
Mayor Viglianti also revealed that a group of nine Mountainside residents, including three Republicans, three Democrats and three Independents, would meet to develop suggestions as to how the borough should respond to the issue.
In other business, the council authorized a shared services agreement with Westfield for the position of tax collector.
Council President Thomas Perrotta stated that shared services agreements also currently exist between the two municipalities in the health department, as well as for local assistance services. He noted that, “these positions of shared
services provide a substantial savings to the borough.”
In other business, officials appointed Patricia Gagliardi, an alternate member of the borough’s Board of Adjustment, as a regular member of the board to fill the unexpired term of William Biunno.
Ms. Gagliardi’s term will expire in December of 2001.
Council members also authorized the borough’s finance officer to purchase savings bonds of $150 and $100, to be awarded to the Valedictorian and the Salutatorian, respectively, during the Monday, June 21 graduation of Deerfield School.
Finally, the Mayor reminded citizens that Senior Citizen Coordinator Lisa Cassidy is currently conducting a survey among Mountainside seniors to learn more about their needs.
Copies of the survey may be found at Borough Hall, the Mountainside Library and Deerfield School. Responses are due back by Tuesday, June 15.
