The Constitution Clarified At The Ocean County Library

STAFFORD TOWNSHIP, NJ – The Constitution is firm enough to hold America together, flexible enough for all its people, and still vibrant as it reaches 235 years of age. Take a refreshing view during a Friends Adventure, “A Citizen’s Look at the U.S. Constitution,” 10 AM Thursday, February 1 at the Ocean County Library Stafford Branch.

John Imperiale, newly installed Mayor of Harvey Cedars, will conduct a whirlwind tour of the Constitutional Convention followed by a deeper examination of the Constitution’s evolution and resilience.

Imperiale will explain how the Constitution defined – and yet did not define – America’s three branches of government, how each branch has adapted, and how amendments, Supreme Court decisions and practical applications have tested and proven its resilience.
