N.J. Constitutional Convention: Vol. 4, Page 742


Whereas, it is our firm belief that the government of this State belongs to the people who created it, and,

Whereas, we firmly believe that the government should be kept as close to the people as possible, and,

Whereas, any attempt upon the part of the Constitutional Convention now assembled in New Brunswick, New Jersey, to centralize or integrate the county courts as they are at presently constituted, into a unified court system would be in opposition to the welfare of the people of the State and in violation of the intent of our forefathers as expressed in the above principles,

Now Therefore, Be It Resolved by the Union County Republican Committee in special session assembled this 21st day of July, 1947, that said Committee petition the Constitutional Convention to refrain and desist from any action that would destroy or impair the county court systems as presently constituted as in our opinion this would be a backward step and in opposition to the intention of the founders of this State, and,

Be It Further Resolved that we call upon the delegates of the County of Union to use their influence to carry out the intent of this resolution, and,

Be It Further Resolved that a copy of this resolution be submitted, immediately, to the delegates to the Constitutional Convention from the County of Union; to the Chairman of the Convention; to the Governor of the State of New Jersey and to the other members of the Judicial Committee of the Constitutional Convention.

I, Robert J. McNair, Secretary of the Union County Republican Committee, hereby certify that the above is a true copy of a Resolution unanimously adopted by the Union County Republican Committee at a Special Meeting held at the Elizabeth Carteret Hotel on July 21, 1947 at 8:15 P.M.

Robert J. McNair, Secretary Union County Republican Committee
