County History Tour October 21 Booklet

Officials in New Jersey State Government are discussing requiring towns and school districts to merge and turn over local functions to county government as a way to reduce cost and lower property taxes. Long term, this may be beneficial. However, we believe that this would result in chaos and delay tax reform. Substantial implementation time would be required. Most importantly, the root cause of the problem is not being addressed - that of corruption, exploitation and waste. Everyone knows what the problem is and what fixes are required. We say, bite the bullet and get the job done. Stop wasting time and money. Stop distractions. The public will not let up on this issue (we hope). It's way above the radar screen. - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
