Lee Clark Black History Month.jfif

When observing Black History month, we too often acknowledge the achievements of the great Black inventors and humanitarians, the giants who have shaped our society, and we forget the contributions of the decent people around us, our friends and neighbors who work hard and make a difference in our town and our lives every day. That's why Lee Clark's letter is so important. He understands the impact of local Black-owned businesses, and he lists some of those right here in town.

About Us

We are a group of residents, living and working in the town of Phillipsburg, New Jersey. Our goal is to bring arurate, timely, relevant information to everyone as a way to increase the transparency with our leaders in town government. 

Less, conjecture without the snarky back and forth from people that do not want the town to move forward as a destination for the whole family.

We believe all residents should be represented by those men and women who understand the historical significance of our working class roots, and the family values we have embraced. The fundamental fairness standard we employ and seek for all.

We are concerned citizens—a group of local citizens, residents, business owners, and property owners — calling for a better Phillipsburg. Our town is tired of division and political favoritism lacking in transactional transparency. It’s time to restore a “common-sense coalition” providing transparency in government and insist on public discourse as we plan for a sustainable future. We are committed to making Phillipsburg transparent, accessible and welcoming to all.
