WISNIEWSKI URGES PUBLIC TO VISIT REDISTRICTING WEB SITE & ATTEND UPCOMING PUBLIC HEARINGS

(TRENTON) – Assemblyman John Wisniewski, the Democratic co-chairman of the New Jersey Reapportionment Commission, on Tuesday invited residents to visit the commission’s new website and attend two upcoming public hearings to make their opinions known.
“This is a once-a-decade process that is of vital importance to the future of our state,” said Wisniewski (D-Middlesex). “This process will help determine the direction of public policy in New Jersey for the next 10 years. It’s crucial that everybody have their voices heard and help ensure we get a legislative map that is fair to every New Jerseyan and enables a Legislature that actually looks like our state.”

· 1 p.m. Sunday in the Scott Ring Room, 2nd Floor, Culinary Conference Center, 161 Newkirk St. at Hudson County Community College in Jersey City.
“This map must be constitutional,” said Wisniewski. “It must be forward-looking. And it must create a Legislature attuned to your lives and needs. That’s why your input is needed.”
