John Donnadio, the executive director of NJAC, whose goal is to “advocate for legislation, regulations, and policy directives that empower county governments to operate more effectively and efficiently” – according to their website – addressed the board in hopes of garnering support.

Harrison Freeholder Al Cifelli (D-9) said that although the “pension crisis” was a Trenton problem, he added that the Hudson County freeholders are committed to lending a helping hand to NJAC however possible.

Jersey City Freeholder E. Junior Maldonado (D-4) commended NJAC for their continued efforts, suggesting to add some resolutions for Thursday’s meeting in support of their endeavors before fellow Jersey City Freeholder Bill O’Dea (D-2) recommended having NJAC representatives schedule a day to lobby state legislators in Trenton.
