Dear Residents:

Please see today’s Record regarding the article entitled: “Bergen County MLK statue will be on solid footing”

My wife Assemblywoman Valerie Huttle and I were happy to donate the MLK Maquette, which is a uniqure piece, to The Englewood Public Library yesterday at the presentation ceremony. This will teach the country’s history to local children.

Valerie and I thought it was only fitting to donate this statue to The Englewood Public Library.

Dear Residents:

Please see article from today’s NJ.com on N.J. panel approves tougher inspection, investigation requirements to protect disabled people.

I am pleased that that the Assembly panel has approved this bill to ensure the reporting of group-home operators in regard to accusations of abuse. Assembly Human Services Committee Chair Valerie Vainieri Huttle and the entire Committee has worked hard to make this happen. An additional bill that was approved extends protection for children with developmental disabilities who are under a private agency.

Regards,

Mayor Frank Huttle, III

Dear Residents:

Please see Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle’s article below from the NewJerseyNewsroom.com Trenton

Assemblywoman and Assembly Human Services Committee Chair Valerie Huttle, is looking for answers from the Department of Human Services regarding NJ residents having to wait longer than almost anyone else in the Country to hear whether or not they qualify for food aid.

I applaud Assemblywoman Huttle for speaking up o this critical issue.

Regards,

Mayor Frank Huttle, III

TRENTON – Assembly Human Services Committee Chair Valerie Vainieri Huttle (D-Bergen) is seeking answers from the State Department of Human Services (DHS) as to why New Jersey residents have one of the longest waits in the country to receive word on whether they qualify for critical nutritional aid.

Vainieri Huttle sent a letter to DHS Commissioner Jennifer Velez on Friday laying out a series of questions in response to a number of reports over the summer showing New Jersey’s ‘chronically poor performance’ in administering the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), ranking 52nd out of 53 state agencies nationwide in terms of timeliness when it comes to processing applications for the program.

“The problem we have here is twofold. First, you have some of our most vulnerable residents being forced to wait an exorbitant amount of time to find out if they qualify for crucial assistance to help feed their families. As a result of this dysfunctional system, the federal government is now threatening to withhold half of the $278 million it costs our state to operate this program, a move that could threaten the well being of even more families,” said Vainieri Huttle. “This is why we need answers.”

Among the many questions Vainieri Huttle laid out in her letter is why the state’s $118 million investment in a new computer system to replace the current antiquated one has yet to come to fruition, a move that many say would alleviate most of the existing delays and communications problems.
