Statement by Russell Bongiovanni Sr
Veteran – Army 101st Airborne
March 7, 2014
TOWNSHIP OF HAMILTON (ATLANTIC COUNTY)
REFERENCE THE PROPOSED “QUALIFIED VETERAN=OWNED BUSINESS SET-ASIDE PROGRAM”
It is my opinion that the “Qualified Veteran-Owned Business Set-Aside program” proposed ordinance be at the level of the 21 counties in New Jersey and not at the level of the 565 municipalities in New Jersey. By having the program at the county level the program has a greater probability of success, by benefiting more Veterans, then at the municipality level. It is also more cost effective to originate and maintain by having Atlantic Counties 21 municipalities participate rather than one municipality in Atlantic County participate. As a Veteran and as being a National Business Consultant for over 20 years, it would be disappointing for the Veterans in the Township of Hamilton and the Tax Payers in the Township of Hamilton if not one Veteran in the Township benefits from the proposed ordinance.
