GR gets re-districted (again)

Payne-Pascrell
Congressman Bill Pascrell, who has represented Glen Ridge for the last 15 years - is out.

The redistricting commission has issued the new map of New Jersey's congressional districts, and just as happened when the state legislature was redistricted earlier this year, Glen Ridge has been shunted into a new district - NJ's new 10th Congressional District.

As things stand now, it looks like, as of January, 2013, our new congressman will be Donald M. Payne.
