I enjoyed our conversation today with regard to COAH

In Assemblyan Rumama, COAH, Ridgewood New Jersey on January 6, 2009 at 5:11 pm

Dear John Q Public:

I enjoyed our conversation today with regard to COAH. The following is a link to the New Jersey Legislature website: http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/. You can see that Assemblyan Rumama has sponsored many bills on COAH to combat the new regulations.

Also, on that page you can locate the other members of the Assembly and State Senate and then review the towns in their districts to identify where your family and friends reside. Please contact them to pass along information that you learned at our meeting and then request that they contact the Assemblyman and Senator from their district to demand that they change the affordable housing policy.

In addition I also want to advise you of some of the current developments relative to COAH. On November 17 the Office of Legislative Services, which is a nonpartisan office within the state government prepared an analysis which stated that the implementation of these new regulations throughout the state will leave a deficit of over 2 billion dollars of annual resources for fair share housing obligations.

Furthermore, on November 24th the League of Municipalities wrote to Governor Corzine requesting a six month reprieve to extend the current December 31 deadline by a period of six months. This request was not granted so municipalities were required to file their plan with the state by December 31, 2008.

Our office will continue to keep you up to date of any other developments as they transpire. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or comments regarding the above.

Thank you for your kind attention to this matter.

Very truly yours,

Scott T. Rumana

  1. I’ll bet not one of our VC members has approached our state representatives about his issue.

    Our guys just throw up their hands and claim they can’t do anything about it.

    Maybe that is because they have crappy relationships with our Assemblymen and State Senator.

    The lack of political parties in Ridgewood hurts us in so many ways one can’t count them.
