Merchantville residents consider study of merger

MERCHANTVILLE — An advocate of municipal mergers spoke here Wednesday night, but not everyone in the audience embraced her views. Gina Genovese, founder of Courage to Connect NJ, was brought in by members of a local group that put together a petition in July urging a study of a possible merger between Merchantville and Cherry Hill. “It’s a message that we’re presenting all around the state, that this is a problem for New Jersey,” Genovese told her listeners at First Presbyterian Church. She said duplicated efforts among multiple municipalities are “a major cause of our fiscal unstablility.”
