Suburbs are concerned that they are not represented while paying a large share of the taxes. Some counties in New Jersey elect their officials by district. Perhaps the time has come for the state to pass a uniform election law for counties, invoking the district election concept to enable representative government. - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
