Serving as an appointed municipal official
 

Issue Detail:

 
A good way for Libertarians to embark on getting involved in local government is to serve as a member of an appointed board. In order to find out what boards have vacancies, submit the following OPRA request to your municipal clerk: -------- OPRA request I would like the following government records in accordance with the Open Public Records Act (OPRA) and the common law right of access. 1. The municipality\'s up-to-date directory of local authorities, boards and commissions, as required by N.J.S.A. 40A:9-9.2 2. The municipality\'s \"Citizen Leadership Form\" as required by the same statute. -------- I submitted such a request to Penns Grove Borough in Salem County and the responsive documents are on-line at As you can see, the following vacancies currently exist in Penns Grove: two positions as Planning Board Alternate; one position on the Redevelopment Agency; two vacancies on the Recreation Board and one position on the Shade Tree Commission.
