The Car Wash Operators of New Jersey (CWONJ) has hired Princeton Public Affairs Group (PPAG), New Jersey’s premier governmental relations firm, based in Trenton, to create dialogue with legislators to educate them on the safe measures taken by car washes during COVID-19. By doing so, the association hopes to be included in legislation outlining "essential" businesses during this second wave of the pandemic.

The CWONJ and PPAG have set up car wash tours with key legislators that will begin the third week in January. The tours will physically show these legislators the safe measures being taken at New Jersey’s washes and why they should remain open and "essential" during these difficult times.
