NJ Government Could Cost Less… With Your Help

The Citizens Campaign and Middlesex County College’s Democracy House are hosting a free public forum on Tuesday, October 23d to empower citizens to “Make Your Local Government Work Better & Cost Less.” Over the past two years citizens from across the state have been successful in saving more than $22 million by implementing The Citizens Campaign’s Best Price Insurance Reform which is a model law that requires towns and school boards to compare prices for health insurance and eliminates brokers conflicts of interest. 

“We are constantly faced with stories of wasteful and superfluous spending in municipal and county government,” says Citizens Campaign Chairman Harry Pozycki. “Instead of sitting on the sidelines reading headlines of government waste and corruption, we have a chance empower citizens to be the solution and make government work better and cost less.”

The keynote speaker at the event, New Jersey State Comptroller Matt Boxer, has identified hundreds of millions of dollars wasteful government spending since taking office in 2006. His office has discovered extraordinary and excessive employee bonuses and perks, pension padding by professionals, lax procurement protocols, and many other wasteful practices. At the forum, he’ll offer residents advice and guidance on how they can identify and eliminate wasteful spending in their municipalities, school boards, and counties.

The forum will be on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 6pm at Middlesex County College in Crabiel Hall at 2600 Woodbridge Avenue, Edison, NJ. For more information and to pre-register visit www.thecitizenscampaign.org/events or call (732) 548-9798 x.1.
