Today Petition Can Be Picked UP
Hello Central Ward:
Let's see who will be ringing our bells and phones first trying to gain our support in 2010. The question still remains can we ever get an effective representative for the biggest ward in Newark? Has anyone heard of any names of people running for the Central, I would like to attend a forum to hear what their platforms and what new ideas they are bringing to the table.
