Re: NJLM’s 2014 State Legislative Priorities
Last month I had the honor of being elected President of the State league of Municipalities. For the next twelve months I will do all I can to elevate the institution of municipal government by developing meaningful working relationships with policymakers at all levels of government.
The league’s legislative staff spends a lot of time and energy working on specific bills. That’s not what this letter is about, however. For this, we asked them to take a step back to better appreciate the big picture. They identified a few major areas of concerns. They have carefully analyzed these issues. Then, they boiled their analysis down to a concise summary of the challenges and opportunities before us. You can access our 2014 Legislative Agenda at http://www.njslom.org/leg-bulletins/LegAgenda-2014.pdf.
We hope you find this helpful, as you, yourself, evaluate State policy proposals being tackled by New Jersey’s Two Hundred and Sixteenth Legislature, over the next year.
If you would like to discuss these, or any other issues, that you would like to advance or consider during the upcoming year, please feel free to contact me, through the league office, or through our Governmental Affairs Director Mike Cerra at 609-695-3481 ext. 120 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all that you do for the people and for local government in our State.
Very truly yours,
Hon. Suzanne Walters, League President and
Mayor, Stone Harbor Borough
