We are proud to present the 2021 edition of the Legislative Manual.
Our writers and editors have labored many hours to bring you the
most current and complete work of its kind in New Jersey.
The 2021 edition is notable in that after 27 years, a new owner
and publisher is assuming the mantle. Kimmage Publishing LLC is
proud to continue to offer this volume to better serve civic and
political dialogue and understanding.
Our mission is to provide you with helpful and accurate answers
to questions concerning New Jersey government. We want to be your
primary source of information to the people and places that comprise
the government community.
This has been an especially challenging publishing season for us. The outbreak of the COVID-19 virus that ravaged this state has
resulted in the shutdown of important offices and businesses
throughout New Jersey. But, it is the loss of over 25,000 of our fellow
citizens who succumbed to the disease, that gives us profound pause.
We thank our subscribers for their patience, and especially thank
those government officials who worked under difficult conditions to
provide information for us. In some instances, where information was
not directly available, we have verified material for this edition
through alternate sources.
It is in the memory of those lost lives and to the hard-working public
servants at all levels of government that we dedicate this year’s
-Peter G. Kane
