Merger advocate to visit Merchantville

The founder of an organization that advocates municipal consolidation will visit Merchantville on Wednesday night to support some residents’ effort to combine the borough with neighboring Cherry Hill.

Courage to Connect New Jersey founder Gina Genovese will present a program from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at the First Presbyterian Church on West Maple Avenue. Genovese said her presentation will be a “comprehensive program and presentation that educates the public on the issue.”

A group of Merchantville residents this year petitioned the borough government to merge Merchantville with Cherry Hill. Since then, elected officials in both communities have begun considering the request.
