This past Saturday residents of Cloverhill Place in Montclair gathered for their annual block party. They sampled an ample array of food and drink and leisurely chatted with their neighbors, children and pets in tow. But this year, there was a major difference. Montclair Local is profiling Cloverhill Place as part of its participation in a New Jersey collaborative reporting effort called Voting Block. The project’s mission is to encourage civil political discussion and more informed voters in neighborhoods across the Garden State ahead of this fall’s gubernatorial election. And the residents of Cloverhill Place were more than willing to share their views with one another and with us.
