Robbinsville, NJ: Robbinsville’s Township Council unanimously passed Resolution 2019-195, recognizing National New Jersey Day as an occasion for celebrating the rich history and cultural diversity that makes New Jersey unique among the 50 states.  The Council members, led by President Ron Witt, described New Jersey’s population growth powered by immigrants from around the world as a “source of strength”.  The Council also strongly condemned any attempt to use hate or any form of discrimination or racism to weaken the unity of the people of New Jersey and the Robbinsville community.

“Our community proudly reaffirms its commitment to cultural diversity, its respect for varying viewpoints, and its intolerance for discrimination and racism with this resolution,” stated Councilman Witt.  “I’d like to acknowledge residents Umang Naik and Brian Hayes for their encouragement and advocacy on this critical issue that defines who we are as a community,” concluded Witt.

Resolution 2019-195 reads as follows:

WHEREAS, on June 24, 1664, New Jersey became a British colony and one of the original 13 British colonies that became the United States of America; and

WHEREAS, due to New Jersey’s central location within the 13 colonies, it played a vital role in the Revolutionary War and saw more battles fought within its borders during the war than any other state; and

WHEREAS, on December 18, 1787, New Jersey became the third state to ratify the United States Constitution; and

WHEREAS, on November 20, 1789, New Jersey became the first state to ratify the Bill of Rights; and

WHEREAS, after becoming a state New Jersey became a leader in agriculture, industry, innovation and technology; and

WHEREAS, New Jersey also became not only a gateway to the United States for immigrants from around the world, but also their home. The population growth led by immigrants from around the world has made NJ one of the most diverse states in the United States; and

WHEREAS, the diversity of its population has provided New Jersey the opportunity to become a state with many viewpoints and these viewpoints should be used as a means to unite and bring people together to make New Jersey even stronger; and

WHEREAS, at no time should these viewpoints be used to attack the diversity of New Jersey and any attempt to use hate or any form of discrimination or racism to weaken the unity of the people of New Jersey must be admonished.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Township Council of the Township of Robbinsville, County of Mercer, and State of New Jersey that the Township of Robbinsville hereby recognizes July 27, 2019 as National New Jersey Day and urges all of its residents to recognize and celebrate, not just on National New Jersey Day, but every day, all of the benefits offered by the history and diversity of the State of New Jersey.
