Re: Management Survey
Dear Municipal Clerk,
The New Jersey State League of Municipalities in partnership with the Rutgers University Center for Executive Leadership in Government is administering a survey to better understand the strategies being considered at the local level to close current and projected budget gaps.
This survey will be sent to your email address early next week through an online survey platform called SurveyMonkey. Please check your email inbox for the following link to complete the survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Exploring_Alternative_Policies_Local_Government.
We ask that you please forward the email to your town manager or administrator. If there is no such position in your town please complete the survey yourself. We strongly encourage their participation in this 15 minute survey, as the more responses we receive the more valid our findings and recommendations will be. Should you choose to have a paper survey mailed to you please contact Dr. Kathe Callahan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 732 932 6998 ext. 604. All responses will be directed and compiled by Rutgers University and held in strict confidence. None of the information we receive will be linked back to any individual and all responses will be reported in the aggregate.
We hope to have the results of this survey compiled in time for the League Conference in November of 2011 where we look forward to participating in an active and engaged discussion with state public officials.
We sincerely appreciate you taking the time to respond. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
Very truly yours,
