Mercer County Residents Should Protest Move of Prisoners to Hudson County

To the Editor:

The County Executive of Mercer County, until now the most progressive and democratic of all the counties in New Jersey, has firmly decided to house Mercer prisoners in Hudson County jail, hours away from their families and children most of whom will not be able to take time from work or money necessary to maintain vital family ties.

Residents of Mercer County and others, please express your outrage and opposition as I did by calling, visiting, or emailing Brian Hughes.
