Lonegan Urges Senators Not to Sign Off on Christie Supreme Court Picks Unless Nominees Reject Judicial Activism

BOGOTA, NJ – Steve Lonegan, Americans for Prosperity State Director, today urged seven State Senators whose “sign off” is required for two State Supreme Court nominees to have hearings, not to give their approval unless the two nominees reject the concept of judicial activism that has been the Court’s hallmark.

The seven state Senators include four from Bergen County who must sign off on Phillip Kwon’s nomination, two from Morris County who must sign off on Mayor Bruce Harris’s nomination, and Senator Tom Kean (R-21) from Union County whose district includes Harris’s home town of Chatham Borough.

No hearings can occur on the nominees until the Senators all sign off on the nominations. “They are the first line of review here, and we’re urging them to take their responsibility seriously,” he added.

AFP’s Lonegan Open but Skeptical of Christie Supreme Court Nominees

BOGOTA, NJ – Americans for Prosperity state director Steve Lonegan has issued the following statement regarding Gov. Chris Christie’s proposed nominees to the state Supreme Court.

“With two vacancies to fill on the state Supreme Court, Gov. Christie has an historic opportunity to steer the court in a new direction and restore the proper balance of powers to state government. Four decades of unrestrained judicial activism and social engineering from the state’s high court has done untold damage to the state’s fiscal condition, resulted in an ever-escalating tax burden, and undermined the very fabric of communities across the state.

Biased PolitiFact Stands By Flimsy Toll Hike Ruling

January 03, 2012 J

Last week, AFP alerted our activists about a pending 50% toll increase on the Garden State Parkway and New Jersey Turnpike.

Embedded in the body of the e-mail was the following statement:

New Jersey taxpayers, the most over-burdened in the nation, will now face the highest tolls in the country with no noticeable improvement in service.

(Note: See below for the full text of the e-mail alert.)

The purpose of this statement was to convey generally that New Jersey motorists are subject to a bevy of high tolls. This includes not just on the Parkway and Turnpike, but other tolls across the state including those at Hudson River crossings, or upon entering Pennsylvania or Delaware.
