City of Trenton Partners with Department of Community Affairs to Host Good Governance Training

The City Council Participates in Good Governance Classes

Trenton N.J. – The City of Trenton is proud to share with the public an ongoing partnership with the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA). DCA has been holding classes and seminars for the Trenton City Council on good governance practices.

Inadequate education on government functions and processes hindered the ability of the previous City Council to make effective policy. These misunderstandings led to numerous delays and ultimately avoidable gridlock. DCA’s program seeks to streamline the City Council’s legislative process, expediting policy creation, and allowing the city to implement effective policies.

Last year, DCA ran a similar program for all elected officials in Atlantic City, which fostered a more collaborative legislative environment for the city. “We appreciate every bit of cooperation that this important DCA program can facilitate,” said Trenton Mayor Reed Gusciora. “The determination the Council has already demonstrated, combined with this opportunity for growth, will no doubt benefit the policy process and ensure that we deliver for residents quickly and effectively.”

At-Large Trenton City Councilwoman Jasi Edwards affirmed, “The Good Governance trainings provide the opportunity to learn how to learn the full extent of our roles and responsibilities. As elected officials, it is our duty to commit ourselves to finding more efficient means at constructing and implementing policies, in an informed manner, that benefits all Trentonians.”

South Ward Trenton City Councilwoman Jenna Figueroa Kettenburg agreed, stating, “I support any opportunity to improve the Council’s ability to serve our fellow Trentonians.” Councilwoman Jenna Kettenburg followed, “I am looking forward to improving our Council’s reputation as public servants and our City overall as a result of this innovative program doubling as a tutorial.”
