About the group.... February 17, 2006 7:35 PM

This group was created for activists in New Jersey to meet each other and discuss important issues regarding the "garden state" and beyond. Here we can also post articles, petitions, and shares .

My goal is for us to become both organized and close enough to be able to physically get together for meetings, protests, live hand signed petitions, volunteering and anything else that could make a difference

Of course, it won't be all business here. Feel free to be casual and just chat when ever the mood strikes you  

Please note: No abusive language, please remain civil to one another at all times. If need be, agree to disagree. This is a friendly group

Thanks and I hope we can all learn a lot, make a difference, and have fun.

Natalie-

Hi! I'm Mia, a Jersey girl via Tx...and it's fantastic(!!) that you created a group such as this.  Jersey is in so much trouble...in soooo many ways...I used to like it here, but little tugs at my heart strings anymore.I have mostly lived by the beach, and I mean literally on the waterfront (not all this new hirise, condo, money sucking properties, either) While living in Monmouth Beach and Long Branch for many, many years, I've seen so many disappointing changes. Some were great though. But few. Don't get me started on this imminent domain garbage...oh, u aren't, I am

Well, I'm hopping off my soap box for nowand again, kudos for u!

~Mia~

Mia, I am definitely with you on the emanate domain stuff as well as the pine barons being destroyed with all of the new construction spreading like a virus! There is plenty that needs to change in New Jersey as well as this country!!!

Hi Natalie and Mia! Thank you for creating this group Natalie...I didn't even know it existed until one of my friends stumbled upon it and told me about it!  This is a great concept for a group!  New Jersey needs help big time! 

My name is Tracy, and I am a south jersey girl!  I've lived here all my life, and just recently, I have a cause very near and dear to my heart that I am fighting for.  It does have to do with land development.  I'd love to start a topic about it to help get the word out about my cause!

Thanks for the invitation March 06, 2006 4:51 PM

I'm a Jersey Girl born and bred.  I need a "down the shore" fix at least once a year, I have had big hair and worn lavender eyeshadow, I have gone the wrong way on route 23 leaving the Willowbrook Mall, I learned to ski at Great Gorge from the guy who was the drummer in the oompah band at the Rock Oak Lodge and hanging in my mother's guest room closet is the bridesmaids dress I wore in a Mob wedding. So, my credentials are impeccable. Not that you asked! 

D--- straight NJ's in Trouble.  Our cities are detereorating, our farmers are going out of business -- even where they are saving the farms, they're not saving the farmers. Suburban sprawl is closing in on us, we have been invaded by Wal-Marts (known as The Great Satan in some parts of the state) and cookie-cutter developments, industries are moving out, Pennsylvania is exporting air pollution, and our taxes are wa-a-ay too high. And they're tearing down the doo-wop motels in Wildwood!!!!!!

But, we're Jersey, so we're gonna stay and fight! With an occasional trip to Vermont to regain our sanity. . .
