Common Cause Applauds Westfield for Clean Government Ordinance

WESTFIELD — Common Cause New Jersey said that Westfield is now among those leading the charge statewide for clean government, with the adoption of the organization's model Clean Government Ordinance to ban political fundraising on government property.

The ordinance, which was drafted by attorneys who are recognized authorities on municipal government in New Jersey, was adopted unanimously on a bipartisan vote.

David Golush, a local resident who presented the ordinance in front of the Council in January, appeared at the Council meeting to thank Mayor Thomas C. Jardim and members of the council for raising the flag of civic values over his community.

"Citizens everywhere are concerned about runaway political fundraising. I took it upon myself to attend a recruitment meeting for the Citizens' Army, as well as a training session that prepared me to bring the ordinance to our town," explained Mr. Golush. "The passage of this ordinance serves to reaffirm to the citizens of Westfield that we can put trust, confidence and pride in our local government."

Common Cause New Jersey, a nonpartisan group that is working to reform campaign financing in the state and on a federal level, has formed a group it calls the Citizens' Army Movement. It is described by Common Cause New Jersey as a grassroots attempt to get more people involved in their local government.

The Citizens' Army trains citizens in developing and presenting local ordinances aimed at reforming campaign financing.

"With the Westfield adoption we have gained more momentum and now have several ordinances being presented, introduced, or in the process of adoption, with more to come as Common Cause continues to take its Citizens' Army Movement statewide," said Rob Holzapfel, Coordinator of the Citizens' Army.
