New Jersey--Daytime Curfew Defeated!

July 19, 2006

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Last night the council of the Borough of Washington rejected the
proposed daytime curfew on a 5-1 vote. Your help made a difference!

This defeat is especially important because Washington Borough appears
to be the first municipality in the state to attempt to enact a
daytime curfew. If it had succeeded, it could have emboldened other
municipalities to follow suit.

Homeschool families turned out to pack the hearing room. The council
and members of the press heard nearly two hours of testimony,
including the testimony of Mark August, President of the Education
Network of Christian Homeschoolers. The testimony was almost
exclusively against the ordinance.

The hearing and the vote were the climax, but it was built on the
efforts of many.

Carolee Adams worked quietly with individual members of the council
(and also testified at the hearing) to explain why it should not
become law. HSLDA attorney Scott Woodruff sent an eight-page legal
memorandum to council members and the council attorney explaining how
the ordinance jeopardized freedoms protected under the constitution.

This ordinance appeared to have significant momentum. Homeschoolers
worked together with a passion to protect freedom, however, and turned
the momentum the other way.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom.

Sincerely Yours,
Scott A. Woodruff, Esq.
