Gov. Chris Christie recently said he can punt a football into Mendham Township from his home in Mendham Borough.
Mendham Township Mayor Richard Krieg says ultimately the Mendhams need to come back together.
While these two leaders come from two different perspectives, they both acknowledge that the current system is expensive and redundant.
In this time of enormous economic stress, we need to work toward combining administrations throughout the state's 566 municipalities.
The Mendhams have talked, studied, and voted to merge their two towns. But the concept has never moved forward, as the studies have shown there always seems to be one winner and one loser.
