The Citizens Campaign launched a city-wide survey this week to help the Perth Amboy School District create a community-based Student Code of Excellence. Residents, teachers, business owners and others who live or work in Perth Amboy have until August 29 to fill out the Community Code of Excellence Survey to provide feedback on how the district should handle misbehavior in its schools.

I am seeking twenty dedicated individuals who are passionate about their community and willing to make a one-year commitment to tell the story of civic innovation in their city.
Published in the Hudson Reporter, July 27, 2014 On Flag Day, over 200 Jersey City residents answered the call to service by flooding City Hall for the JC Summit. If there was one thing that became immediately clear, it’s that Jersey City residents are ready to be a force for positive change.
[Editorial Note: Since 1998 The Citizens Campaign has been working to empower a new generation of leaders and cultivate a culture of service. We teach citizens how to navigate the power structure of New Jersey government & politics and how to exercise leadership in their own hometowns. Every once in a while our citizen problem-solvers use what they have learned to bring their leadership to the next level and seek elected office. Orange resident Harold Johnson is one of these leaders. Read his personal story of how he went from an empowered civic leader to an elected Councilman using the tools and training of The Citizens Campaign.]
We are thrilled to announce that several residents and members of The Citizens Campaign’s Impact Perth Amboy initiative have been appointed to the newly created Perth Amboy Green Team!
