Proponent of Consolidation Says Jersey Towns Would Benefit from Washington

Joe Cutter of NJ101.5 Reporting

A proponent of consolidating some of Jersey’s 566 Municipalities says the strong support for consolidation in a recent poll should be carried forward, with ordinary people involved in the consolidation dialogue.

Gina Genovese heads “courage to connect”.

Genovese says once a Jersey town reaches the 50-thousand population mark, they are on the map as far as Washington is concerned.
