N.J. Constitutional Convention: Vol. 4, Page 17
We still have some time before the hour scheduled for the next speaker. Is there anything you would like to discuss?
VICE-CHAIRMAN: If not, we can call the next speaker as soon as the Committee is ready.
MR. McGRATH: I move that we go right on.
VICE-CHAIRMAN: Any other thoughts?
VICE-CHAIRMAN: All right, we will call the next speaker, Mr. Louis Le Duc.
Mr. Le Duc is an attorney from Camden, and - I think, Mr. Le Duc, you had better state your own representation.
MR. LOUIS LE DUC: Ladies and gentlemen, my appearance here is solely in a representative capacity. I am not voicing my own views, but those of the New Jersey Committee for Constitutional Revision. The true significance of our proposals should be before you.
I will take a minute to explain what our committee is, and whom it represents. It was organized in 1940 and has been active ever since in promoting the subject of a constitutional revision. Many of you know of its activities in 1944. It draws its strength from the representation of a great many statewide organizations - social, economic and civic, of New Jersey - and these organizations that I am going to name to you have joined in the recommendations which my report presents. In other words, these are the minimal proposals of some dozen organizations of this State - statewide in their activities and outlook - and they are the unanimous proposals of these several organizations.
Without suggesting any priorities, I read the list of our affiliated associations:
- New Jersey Taxpayers Association
- New Jersey Association of Real Estate Boards
- Consumers League of New Jersey
- State Federation of Labor   -    that is the A. F. of L. state organization
- New Jersey State CIO Council
- American Association of University Women
- New Jersey League of Women Voters
- State Federation of Women's Clubs
- National Council of Jewish Women
- New Jersey Federation of Colored Women
- New Jersey League of Shoppers.
So that, with that varied background and viewpoint, I think you will realize that what we propose is nothing more simple or fundamental than the detailed picture given you by Senator Hendrickson.
