"Imagine a web woven by a spider on LSD and you might see a frightening similarity to the map showing the jurisdictional outlines of our 566 municipalities in NJ. Present the current facts and statistics of the situation to a systems analyst and you can expect howls of laughter. Given a free hand to reconstruct and reconfigure the present map, no one would attempt to justify a replication of the existing system."

Alan J. Karcher,
Multiple Municipal Madness

Andrew Bruck is a member of the board of directors of CTC-NJ. He is a former law clerk to Chief Justice Stuart Rabner of the New Jersey Supreme Court and the co-author of “Overruled by Home Rule,” a historical and legal overview of municipal consolidation in New Jersey. He graduated from Princeton University and Stanford Law School, where he was editor-in-chief of the  Stanford Law & Policy Review. Andrew’s writing has appeared in the  Star-LedgerBergen Record, Harvard Law & Policy Review, and the Stanford Law Review.

Gina Genovese is the founder and executive director of CTC-NJ. She served as mayor of Long Hill Township (population 9,000), during which time she realized the burden carried by 3,100 households was too great to support an entire administrative structure. Gina now tours the state educating residents about New Jersey’s fractured system of municipal government and assuaging concerns that consolidation will destroy local identity. As part of her work with CTC-NJ, mayor Genovese has appeared in the New York Times, Star-Ledger, New Jersey Monthly, and Philadelphia Inquirer and on CNBC, fOX, WNYC, NPR, NJN News and NJ101.5.

Jonathan Jaffe serves as a media advisor to CTC-NJ. He spent nearly a decade as a reporter for the Star-Ledger, where he covered municipal and state affairs and was twice awarded by the Society of Professional Journalists. He is now a principal at Jaffe Communications, Inc., where he advises clients on public relations, government affairs, and social media, and serves as an adjunct faculty member in journalism at Rutgers University.
