Courier Post Endorses DiCicco Bill: “State law needed on public comment”

February 20, 2010

Assemblyman Domenick DiCicco

While many are rightfully hesitant to endorse an idea whereby Trenton involves itself in local affairs, when it does so on behalf of furthering the public’s involvement on how their town operates, it’s something that’s easy to get behind.

Evidencing just how unpopular the recent decision by full-time Comcast Lobbyist/Blackberry-based Mayor Dave Mayer and the Democrat monopoly in Gloucester Township to shut out GT residents, the Courier Post published a resounding endorsement of Assemblyman Domenick DiCicco’s legislation guaranteeing speaking time for residents during public meetings.

The editorial states that “freshman state Assemblyman Domenick DiCicco, R-Gloucester, is right to have introduced legislation that seeks to ensure all New Jersey residents are guaranteed a voice at their local government’s meetings.”

DiCicco has offered this legislation on the heels of the Gloucester Township Council approving new rules at its Jan. 2 reorganization meeting that place time limits on how long members of the public can speak at council meetings there. The rules — ironically, approved without public comment — are unpopular with some in the community.
