A Must-See Video on Municipal Consolidation in NJ (via LV Independent)
Lehigh Valley Independent has posted a great video on municipal consolidation efforts in New Jersey. This brief video does an excellent job of framing the issue as well as countering arguments against municipal consolidation. Although Pennsylvania and New Jersey have different policy frameworks at the state level, there’s plenty we can learn from this effort going on across the river. Definitely worth checking out. We’d be curious to hear your take. Feel free to post replies/comments below.
Incidentally, Pennsylvania has five times as many municipal governments as does New Jersey, despite us having only about 50 percent greater population.
