Senator Loretta Weinberg and Assemblyman Gordon Johnson (both D-Bergen) released the following statement on the last minute reprieve granted to the NJ After 3 program:
“We join our Democratic colleagues in being relieved the NJ After 3 program is being given a lifeline. We are happy for the prior philanthropic support the program received and welcome any future philanthropic dollars available.
“Our district staff was instrumental in bringing this vital program to Englewood and the Governor’s veto of the dollars to support NJ After 3 was ill-advised and short-sighted.
“Let’s welcome a public-private partnership and find a long-range solution to keep this important program operating.”
