How Voting Really Works in NJ [VIDEO]
Ever wonder how voting works with committees in New Jersey? Well here is some great footage of a committee meeting that may shed some light on the so-called “process.” NJ Assemblyman Charles Mainor, Chairman of the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee explains to a woman who came to the meeting that she’ll be able to make comments “after they pass the bills.”
Aren’t people supposed to be heard and have the ability to voice their grievances BEFORE a committee passes a vote? Thankfully, this woman that showed up to speak her mind on one or more of the bills called Assemblyman Mainor on it.
Once the Assemblyman was called on the voting process, the committee ‘re-considered’ and heard everyone’s remarks but it begs the question, how many times does this go on at other meetings when no one speaks up like this woman did?
