On June 28, on a 77-0 vote, the State Assembly approved AR-11. The Resolution, sponsored by Assembly members Wayne DeAngelo, F. Christopher Tully, and Lisa Swain, urges New Jersey residents to shop locally and support local businesses.
Our Main Street businesses are the backbone of New Jersey hometowns. Not only do they support local services with their property tax dollars, they also employ our neighbors, promote local events and celebrations, sponsor local youth sports teams and activities, and otherwise breathe life into our communities.
We are pleased to see the State Assembly’s recognition of the vital role played by New Jersey’s brick-and-mortar shops and businesses. We thank the sponsors. And we welcome this reminder to all of our residents.
