This is a weekly posting:
I do not accept campaign contributions. That places me at a disadvantage as a candidate. The two established parties not only have standing organizations, partly funded by taxpayers’ money and partly by donations; they also have a fundraising capability unmatched in history. That entrenched bureaucracy will make an extraordinary effort to continue exploiting each and everyone of us for as long as we live. To dislodge them will require effort and coordination.
I cannot do this alone. I need your help.
If you believe in my program and consider its implementation necessary to save New Jersey, join with me. Phase 1 is you talking to your family and friends about this campaign to retake New Jersey and to ask them to talk to their friends and relatives and so on. Show them my website but you should also become aware of the issues: New Jersey is home. We must protect it together. Not only for us but for our children.
We can not save New Jersey without knowing the issues. Getting to know the links between parts: I.E. Why strengthening civil service laws will save you in taxes; why raising the minimum wage is fundamental to recovery; why having different tax rates for NJ and non-NJ dividends is important for our state, etc.
Phase 2 is organizing. That step must begin in as soon as possible. You and your family and friends must elect a local leader. The leaders must contact me via e-mail first and I will link you together. Once that is done we should all meet and discuss plans, tactics and strategy, ask and answer questions, and above all get to know one another. We can arrange the meetings by regions to minimize your travel. In order to simplify subsequent meetings, we may select region coordinators under whom several leaders will function.
Phase 3 will be the petition. This begins in early 2013. We must gather 800 signatures of registered voters. I will help with that too, like another foot soldier. It would be very helpful if one attorney can volunteer some time to review all the documents. The worst scenario is if either party tries to mount a challenge to my petition. I know I meet all the residence and citizenship requirements but that may not stop them. Both parties are full of dirty tricks.
I will also need a lieutenant governor and he/she will be one of you.
After my Lt. and I are certified as candidates and are placed on the ballot, we must return to phase 1 and mobilize the voters, the people.
This sub-page will appear as a post at least once every week until October 2013. All depends on you.
Long live New Jersey.
