Livingston Mayor Attends NJ League of Municipalities Mayor’s Legislative Day


LIVINGSTON, NJ — Livingston Mayor Shawn Klein was among some of the state’s most significant officials, including Senator Stephen Sweeney, Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Martin, Department of Transportation Chief of Staff John Case and more at the New Jersey League of Municipalities’ annual Mayor's Legislative Day at the State House.

Mayors from all over New Jersey heard from a panel of commissioners, who also later interacted with the mayors to discuss their individual local issues. Among some of the mayors joining Klein at the event were Maplewood Mayor Victor De Luca and Madison Mayor Robert Conley, with whom he discussed shared services and other local matters.

“Personally, it’s always exciting to be in the State House and interact with the most important legislators in the state,” said Klein. “As a representative of the town, I think it’s an important opportunity raise important questions and issues regarding the town’s concerns.”

Klein said he spoke with Senator Sweeney regarding Livingston's concerns with affordable housing mandates and urged him to work with both Democrats and Republicans on that important issue. He also DEP Commissioner Bob Martin about his opinion on the proposed Pilgrim Pipeline and whether the company has come before the DEP, which it has not.  

Former League of Municipalities president and West Caldwell Mayor Joseph Tempesta, although he could not make it this year, said this is traditionally a well-attended event and one he always looks forward to.
