02 Feb: Doria Pushes Gang Legislation To Stem Tide Of Violence In Jersey City

JERSEY CITY – State Senator Joseph V. Doria is pushing for swift Senate action on a package of bills intended to curb escalating gang violence in New Jersey’s urban areas, including Jersey City in his district.

“Gangs are running rampant on the streets of Jersey City and other urban centers in New Jersey, and kids are forced to either enter gang life, or face the consequences,” said Senator Doria, D-Bayonne. “While I think we’ve been successful in putting a focus on this problem, we need to do more to discourage gang violence, and give kids a positive alternative.”
