Harry Pozycki, chairman and founder of the Center for Civic Responsibility and its Citizens' Campaign--a non-partisan movement that educates and mentors citizens for non-elected public service and develops legislative solutions that broaden opportunities for civic leadership—will give the keynote address at the Eastern Region Community Media Conference 2010, Friday, May 14 at 12:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency New Brunswick (N.J.)
Harry Pozycki Pozycki was appointed in 2001 by then-Gov. Thomas DiFrancesco to lead the coalition which passed New Jersey's Open Pubic Records Act, and he was the lead author of the Citizen Service Act and the 2009 Party Democracy Act--reforms which opened opportunities for citizen leadership in appointed government offices and in grassroots political party offices.
Pozycki has also authored several model municipal reforms for use by citizen leaders who have won their adoption in over 150 cities and towns. In 2004, he developed New Jersey's anti-pay-to-play law, which has been heralded as the strongest in the nation and has served as a model for laws adopted in Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, and Philadelphia.
