What should the new capital of NJ be? Send in your submissions
Last week I wrote an article regarding how Trenton is one of the lowest-rated state capitals and how I was surprised it didn't rank last on a list of all 50 state capitals. Seriously, the stats are deeply unsettling. Trenton ranks 45th out of all 50 capitals.
I started to think about what would happen if we could move the capital somewhere else. Imagine the state house overlooking the beach? Or if it was in a place where you could actually stop at a red light instead of risk being another carjacking victim? I considered a lot of locations around New Jersey. I ended up picking the town I currently reside in, Freehold. Based on its importance to Monmouth County and the fact that it's about as geographically central as you can get, it makes the most sense.
