Hoboken Councilman Considers Sponsoring OPMA and OPRA Amendments

I stopped by the Black Bear Pub earlier tonight to wish my co-worker and long-time friend, Hoboken Police Captain ANTHONY ROMANO, the best of luck in the upcoming Board of Education race. 

While there, I had an excellent conversation with Hoboken Councilman At Large PETER CAMMARANO with respect to N.J. Senate Bill S.1219.  The legislation provides for much needed amendments to both the Open Public Meetings Act (OPMA) and Open Public Records Act (OPRA)

It was a pleasure to find Councilman Cammarano very knowledgeable about the pending N.J. Senate legislation and Cammarano went as far as expressing an interest in presenting the amendments to the Hoboken City Council.

To help move the process forward, I emailed the Councilman an informational packet on S.1219 which includes a model Resolution for presentation to the Hoboken City Council.   

Hats off to Hoboken Councilman Peter Cammarano for keeping himself informed of State legislative activities and his commitment to bring much needed changes to OPMA and OPRA.   I look forward to Councilman Cammarano's sponsorship of the S.1219 amendment Resolution before the Hoboken City Council.

Never met the councilman, but he is a cut above the rest of those council member pretenders. Maybe there is hope for this city afterall.
