As elected officials, we have a serious responsibility to lead our communities and indeed our state during difficult times. Our constituents, citizens, and neighbors look to us as the headlines trumpet fear of foreclosure and the need for major restructuring of our public finances. As elected officials, we can count on the League to help us respond to these major public policy questions.
The League has many resources available providing needed and valuable information. Visit our website, www.njlm.org, where you can catch up on the legislative blog, The Town Crier, find links and subscription information for important Issue Alerts, review a full listing of League Committees, and discover grant application information. You can also sample the League’s magazine, NJ Municipalities and order publications on a wide range of topics, including the Police and Fire Salary Survey and Newly Elected Officials Handbook.
This information is only a start. Your voice and action will make the difference on today’s issues. Please resolve to make your voice heard by your legislators and by the League. Send your input and concerns so your staff in Trenton can keep them front and center we work together to lead our state.
