Too often local government lacks an easy outlet for constituents to weigh in on policies that directly affect them. Not having this resource for citizens to get engaged in current legislation hinders the public’s trust in government.
Assemblymember Troy Singleton established an online tool, called Citizen Co-Sponsor, to help gather input from constituents about what programs and policies matter most to them. Through this new tool, residents can offer immediate feedback on any proposals going through the New Jersey State Assembly. By allowing every citizen to engage in the legislative process by co-sponsoring policy initiatives, this tool is helping increase their trust in government.
