OCEAN COUNTY – An Assembly candidate for the 9th Legislative District, which includes towns such as Lacey and Berkeley, announced a line-up of town hall-style meetings in the district leading up to the November election.
Wayne Lewis, a Democrat, is seeking a spot on the New Jersey State Assembly. The scheduled events are as follows:
- Aug. 3, 2 p.m.: Barnegat library
- Aug. 13, 6 p.m.: Galloway library
- Aug. 17, 3 p.m.: Stafford library
- Aug. 18, (Time TBD): Rally at Ocean Acres Country Club in Manahawkin
- Aug. 19, 7 p.m., Lacey library
- Sept. 13, 3:30 p.m., Little Egg Harbor library
“I’m looking forward to meeting with my future constituents to discuss the serious issues they face on a daily basis,” said Lewis. “I expect to have a lot of conversations about the affordable housing crisis, caused in part by New Jersey’s outrageous property tax rates. Since the 9th Legislative District is home to so many shore towns, I hope to have a discourse about policies to stymie the glaring effects of the ecological crisis, particularly a potential statewide plastic bag ban. I’m proud of in-district towns like Stafford Township, Long Beach Township, and Beach Haven for implementing their own plastic bag bans at the municipal level.”
