Assemblyman Jay Webber and Assemblywoman BettyLou DeCroce held Mobile Office Hours in Kinnelon on Wednesday evening and were joined by many residents who braved snowy weather to meet with the state legislators. The legislators’ staff also was present to respond to constituent requests as well.  

Welcomed warmly by Mayor Bob Collins and former Mayor Glenn Sisco, the Assembly Members heard from Kinnelon citizens about a host of policies — environmental, educational, energy, utilities, regulatory, budgetary, and more.

“We thank the Kinnelon residents who joined us, shared their experiences, and emphasized the policies that are important to them and their community,” said Assemblyman Webber.  “Hearing directly and personally from the residents helps us better represent their interests, and our mobile office hours are just another way we can do more of that.”

Assemblywoman DeCroce stated, “I wish to thank Mayor Collins, former Mayor Sisco, Councilwoman Sventy and the residents of Kinnelon for their support of our Mobile Office Hours.  In addition, I would like to stress the importance of meeting with the residents of the community to hear their concerns, on a local level, of the issues they face.  These discussions are a valuable tool in our decisionmaking in Trenton for what is in the best interest for the people in our district.”

During Mobile Office Hours, citizens can conveniently walk in to meet personally with their State Legislators, share their ideas about state policies, apply to become Notaries Public, and seek help with State agencies.

Although their Assembly District Office in Parsippany is open to residents every weekday during normal business hours, Assemblyman Webber and Assemblywoman DeCroce are bringing Mobile Office Hours to municipalities in the District as part of their constant traveling throughout the 26th District to meet with constituents and attend local events.

The Assembly Members now have held Mobile Office Hours in Jefferson, North Caldwell, Fairfield, Verona, West Caldwell, and Kinnelon. The next Mobile Office Hours will be in West Milford on Feb. 6.

I was sorry to have missed the opportunity to speak to Assemblywoman DeCroce, this time in Kinnelon. A couple of months ago, I was part of a delegation of concerned citizens who met in her Parsippany office to discuss the dangers of fracking. Our State legislature had already approved the ban against allowing these fracking companies to transport huge amounts of waste water (containing many toxic materials) from the process, across our busy highways from PA to our eastern NJ ports. However, Gov Christie put residents and drivers at risk when he vetoed this important bill. Mrs DeCroce had abstained from the vote, and explained to us that she needed more information. Please add your voice, and call/write her!

I join Ms. Sippie-Gora and other Morris County residents in encouraging Assemblywoman DeCroce to use her position to defend the natural environment and reject fracking (also mountain top removal)l in Morris County and all of New Jersey. In a few decades few will remember any of our names, but thenactions we take for environmental protection will hopefully resound as a true legacy. As a woman, Mrs.DeCroce instinctually must understand that there is nothing more important than the protection of a clean environment for future generations. I am counting on Betty DeCroce to educate herslef and then take a stand for what she then instinctually and practical knows is the correct, responsible action: environmental protection for the remains of natural providence, here in New Jersey. To stand up for the Eco-system, even it she must stand against her colleagues, is essential environmental responsibility.
