Dumb Mayoral Idea

Garwood Mayor Sara Todisco had the bright idea to limit grocery shoppers to alternate days based on last name (A through M on even-numbered days, N through Z on odd-numbered days).  This would worsen panic buying.   Shoppers would not delay shopping until the next eligible day, but would move shopping forward in time.  More stocking at home (can’t get groceries for next day) leads to emptier shelves.


Fortunately NJ Attorney General Gurbir Grewal intervened and Mayor Todisco’s dumb idea is on hold.  Perhaps AG Grewal’s concern was unauthorized declarations, not panics,  but stopping the alternate-day plan is a good thing.  Congrats to AG Grewal.
