Democracy Works in New Jersey
AbstractAmerican democracy works. That was the proud conclusion of those who thoughtfully observed the actions of the New Jersey Constitutional Convention in session on the Rutgers University campus during the summer months of 1947. The people of the state, through their elected representatives, exercised their right to alter their form of government. On November 4 it will be the people who will decide whether to accept or reject the document prepared for them by the convention. In an era when democracy faces serious challenges, when skeptics taunt and believers waver, it is heartening to ponder the significance of what took place at New Brunswick.
