We talked about Bergen County Blue Law repeal as one of our initiatives. Here’s a group that already has work underway for a county referendum. Perhaps we can partner with them on gathering signatures for their petition.

ARTICLE in the Westwood-Hillsdale Patch:

“A group of Bergen residents seeking to repeal the county's "blue laws" intend to get 2,500 signatures for a petition by the end of June so they can get their initiative on the ballot in November.

The group has now just about completed their petition and members will be gathering signatures at community events and other public places around the county, according to Shashoua. They aim to get all 2,500 legally-required signatures by June 30, before many families begin going away for summer vacations, though they may get extras to be safe. 

Anyone interested in learning more about Modernize Bergen County or participating in the petition can check out their Facebook page here.”
