The year 2020 has introduced a myriad of new realities for New Jersey’s local leaders as the COVID-19 pandemic overwhelmed our public health systems, and many of the daily operations in the state. Those who manage New Jersey’s urban municipalities face new pressures in light of already limited and strained resources. In addition to the coronavirus pandemic, urban mayors are also currently dealing with civil unrest and concerns regarding social justice, public safety, the NJ Supreme Court’s recent ruling on Civilian Complaint Review Boards (CCRBs), and the state of policing. In this session elected officials represented in the New Jersey Urban Mayors Association, which is managed by the John S. Watson Institute for Public Policy of Thomas Edison State University, will explore how they plan for a new normal as they manage the aforementioned issues and balance the day-to-day pressures of governing urban municipalities. They will share lessons learned and examine new approaches to governing within a social justice framework.
