SUBJECT: Regarding City Ordinance 17-086

Dear Councilmen and Councilwomen,

My name is [MyName] of [MyAddress] and I have called Jersey City home for the past [#OfYears] years.

I am currently a parishioner of Saint George and Saint Shenuda Coptic Orthodox Church, located at 835 Bergen Avenue, and as a parishioner of the Church I have witnessed first hand the positive effects the Church has had on our local community.  Over the past 43 years, there has been a significant growth in our community, and we are desperately in need of a new center to accommodate the needs of our growing community.

This is why I am asking you to vote in favor of the proposed City Ordinance 17-086, which will vacate a portion of Freeman Avenue and Field Avenue. This proposed ordinance will allow the community to redevelop a section of Ward B and will expand the Church’s services in the area as well as benefit the Jersey City community as a whole.

I would like to  thank you for all the hard work that you do to benefit our ward and Jersey City as a whole.

Thank you,
[MyName]

Step 2: If you have never lived in Jersey City you can remove the optional line as follows: (I have lived in Jersey City for [#OfYears] prior to moving.)

Step 3:  Send the email to: the Council President, the Councilwoman at Large, and the Councilman at Large.

SUBJECT: Regarding City Ordinance 17-086

Dear Councilmen and Councilwomen,

My name is [MyName] and I am currently a parishioner of Saint George and Saint Shenuda Coptic Orthodox Church, located at 835 Bergen Avenue. (I have lived in Jersey City for [#OfYears] prior to moving.) As a parishioner of the Church, I have witnessed first hand the positive effects the Church has had on our local community and this remains the reason why my family and I still commute to Jersey City to support and serve in a church that we call our second home. Over the past 43 years, there has been a significant growth in our community, and we are desperately in need of a new center to accommodate the needs of our growing community.

This is why I am asking you to vote in favor of the proposed City Ordinance 17-086, which will vacate a portion of Freeman Avenue and Field Avenue. This proposed ordinance will allow the community to redevelop a section of Ward B and will expand the Church’s services in the area as well as benefit the Jersey City community as a whole.

I would like to thank you for all the hard work that you do to benefit our community and Jersey City as a whole.

Thank you,
