Welcome!

The Union County Tea Party is a grassroots organization whose purpose is to educate, inform and empower New Jersey residents in Union County, as well as neighboring counties, to return our government at all levels to Constitutional principles. You can make a difference!

Our goals include the resurgence of New Jersey’s and America’s economy and a return to liberty for all. We take action against high taxes and excessive spending, we seek the repeal of business-stifling and job-killing regulations, and we promote the principles of free market capitalism. We seek a government limited to protecting the rights of each individual citizen.

In other words, we want to get the government off our backs!

The Union County Tea Party meets quarterly at the Rustic Mill Diner in Cranford, NJ. See Upcoming Events and Meetings below for more information. There is no charge for admission.

Please follow us on Facebook to stay updated on our progress. You may also contact us via email at: vjensen@comcast.net, or telephone at (908) 578-5005.

STOP AGENDA 21/SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES

WARNING to Fellow Taxpayers and Property Owners!

NJ State Development & Redevelopment Plan* Is HAZARDOUS to Our Way of Life

What Happens to US under this Plan?

Page 7, Section II, of the Plan: “New Jersey will be the national leader in coordinated private and public investment which supports sustainable communities . . . ”

Decoded, this means unelected government bureaucrats and appointees coordinating with government-selected private businesses and NJ politicians will invest OUR tax dollars to fund projects they want, not projects we want, for our communities.

Their projects will take our hard-earned money away from the suburban and rural communities, in which so many of us live, and give our money to sustainable communities in urban areas. They will use taxation, zoning laws and eminent domain to move us into sustainable communities.

Sustainable communities are urban centers, like Newark and Camden, where people live in high-rise apartments who walk or bicycle, where cars are highly discouraged, where we own no property, and where our living space is decided by the government, and smart meters determine how much energy we get.

THE NJ STATE PLAN! IT IS DANGEROUS TO OUR WAY OF LIFE AND OUR CHILDREN’S FUTURES

DEMAND A COMPLETE RE-WRITE WITH PROPERTY RIGHTS AND FREEDOM-OF-LIVING CHOICE PROTECTIONS

PLEASE CONTACT: GOVERNOR CHRISTIE & LT. GOVERNOR GUADAGNO, 609-292-6000 or http://www.state.nj.us/governor/contact/ and GERRY SCHARFENBERGER, DIRECTOR, OFFICE OF PLANNING ADVOCACY, 609-292-7156
AND PLEASE ATTEND ONE OR BOTH OF THE LAST TWO HEARINGS TO VOICE YOUR OBJECTIONS:

September 10, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. Presentation, 2:00 p.m. Public Hearing, Toms River Municipal Complex, Council Chambers, 33 Washington Street, Toms River, NJ 08753

September 13, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. Presentation, 200 p.m. Public Hearing, Jersey City – City Hall, 2nd Floor Council Chambers, 280 Grove Street, Jersey City, NJ 07302

————————————-

Call it Smart Growth, Sustainable Development. or whatever, but this plan and the associated grant money entail the ability to severely restrict your property rights and even seize your home via eminent domain. Go to the state web site and read through the plan for yourself if you think this sounds incredible.

The Somerset County Tea Party has stopped Agenda 21 in their county. They have prepared a point by point rebuttal to the State Plan. We are trying to get 500 signatories per county before submitting it to Trenton. Please email your name and full address to support this effort at vjensen@comcast.net. Thank you so very much for your support!
