I am happy to share that the Board of Commissioners passed my motion to start the process of creating a citizen advisory board on policing in a unanimous, bipartisan vote at our meeting on Monday.
The Township's solicitor will now draft a resolution to formally establish the board, which we will consider at an upcoming meeting. Assuming it passes, we will then make appointments to the board.
I am thankful to the many residents who shared their thoughts on this proposal. I also thank my colleagues for embracing a necessary discussion on systemic racism.
I believe this is an important first step in the long road to addressing this issue.
