Courage to Connect NJ seeking to reduce the size of government in New Jersey

Gina Genovese wants to limit the size of government.

Specifically she’d like to see New Jersey’s 566 municipalities combined into roughly 125.

Genovese, of Long Hill, nine months ago founded Courage to Connect NJ, a non-profit organization dedicated to educating New Jerseyans about roles they can play in consolidating municipalities and restructuring administrative services to reduce the tax burden on the citizenry.

She held a workshop in Jefferson last week, and will hold another on Oct. 14 at the Morris County Library at 7 p.m. Genovese served on the Long Hill Township Committee and was mayor for a year. She’s sinced left elected politics and makes it a point to keep politics out of her presentations.

“It’s for the people to decide, I don’t want to sit here and tell you what should happen,” she said Tuesday during a phone interview regarding what municipalities she believes should be consolidated.

“The people cannot be blindsided by this — they have to be part of this process when it starts,” she said.
