Gubernatorial Candidate
Peter Rohrman

Welcome to the New Jersey Libertarian Party! Libertarians don't want freedom for certain groups based on class, race, gender, age, or religion. Libertarians want freedom for all people, simply because they're human beings.

The number of registered Libertarians voters in New Jersey continues to explode. Since 2015 the numbers have almost TRIPLED. We are by far the third-largest political party in New Jersey. Please make sure to share this story: http://njlp.org/njlpvotergrowth

We are also proud to announce the following outstanding NJLP candidates will be on the ballot in 2017:

Governor and Lt. Governor – Pete Rohrman and Karese Laguerre Hunterdon County Freeholder – Dan Heitkamp
12th District Assembly - Dan Krause and Anthony Storrow Berkeley Heights: Town Council – Tom Maciejewski
13th District: Assembly – Eveline Brownstein Manalapan: Town Council – Hisham Hamed
37th District: Assembly – Claudio Belusic Northfield City Council – John Ordille
39th District: Senate – James Tosone Westfield: Town Council – Valerio Bruscianelli
West Milford: Town Council– Michael Chazukow and Jonathan Salzman  

This year already looks like another historic year of growth for our party. We are a 100% member-funded, volunteer-staffed organization. The NJLP earned nearly 130,000 votes across the Garden State in 2016.

What’s a Libertarian?

Libertarians are fiscally responsible and socially compassionate. We are New Jersey's third largest and fastest-growing party. We believe liberty is the foundation of justice and a peaceful, prosperous America. We reject initiating violence against innocent people. We believe the role of government is to protect life, liberty and property.

Education Reform

All of New Jersey’s children deserve the best possible education. It’s time to start putting kids before political special interests. Eliminate “Last in First Out” employment that forces schools to fire outstanding new teachers. Expand school choice to increase competition and parental choice. Each student deserves equal funding and an equal chance to succeed.

Cut Taxes and Eliminate Wasteful Spending

Eliminate the gas tax. New Jersey taxes are out of control leaving the middle-class struggling to survive. The only way to solve this crisis is to reduce wasteful spending. Public debt has exploded under both establishment parties.

Let’s give voters the option to voluntarily consolidate redundant school districts to make education more efficient.

Let’s reform prevailing wage laws to make public services competitive again. There’s no reason a project should cost more simply because taxpayers are footing the bill. The people of New Jersey are not an ATM for powerful special interests.

Let’s make the public pension system voluntary instead of forcing employees into a bankrupt system. Let’s abolish “double-dipping” that allows officials to take multiple pensions at taxpayer expense.

End Corporate Welfare and Bailouts

New Jersey doesn’t belong to special interests or the political insiders. New Jersey belongs to the people.

New Jersey is consistently ranked the worst place in America to start a business. But it’s our small businesses that employ the most workers and help pull them out of poverty. We need an equal playing field for everyone. Stop giving special treatment to the big guys at the expense of everyone else. Let’s prosecute white-collar criminals and corrupt politicians who take advantage of their positions of power.

Defend the 2nd Amendment

Every human being deserves the right to defend themselves. Let’s make New Jersey a concealed-carry state and stop putting law-abiding gun owners in jail. Instead let’s use our resources to prosecute violent offenders.

Legalize Marijuana and Enact Criminal Justice Reform

The War on Drugs is a failed public policy. Substance abuse is a personal, medical issue not a public crime. Immediately pardon all non-violent criminals in our state prisons. Treat addiction with compassion and rehabilitation instead of brutality and incarceration. Stop wasting taxpayer money on putting sick people in jail.
