The Legislative Branch of NJ’s State Government is broken down into the Senate and General Assembly; think of it as our version of the U.S. Congress’ Senate and House of Representatives. There are 40 voting districts and each district is represented by one Senator and two Assembly Members.
New Jersey’s 40th Legislative District covers 16 municipalities in 4 counties; Allendale, Franklin Lakes, Ho-Ho-Kus, Midland Park, Ridgewood, Waldwick, and Wyckoff in Bergen, Cedar Grove in Essex, Riverdale and Pequannock in Morris, and Little Falls, Pompton Lakes, Totowa, Wayne, and Woodland Park in Passaic.
Eye on Riverdale encourages all residents to attend this event and to take an interest in your State, County and Local governments. The Federal Government gets all the attention but the fact is our State and Local governments have a much greater impact on our quality of life and financial well being. We hope to see you there.
