FROM BEING DISPLACED
BY OUR OWN
UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT
United States v. Antonelli Children
January 11th, 1999
To Whom it May Concern:
My name is Giovanni LoPresti and I am very proud to be a citizen of this country. I am a law abiding citizen with a grave concern for the safety and well being of innocent children. I was a former judicial volunteer for New Jersey Child Placement Review Board, for the displacement of children. I have family and many friends associated with law enforcement. I was a firm believer in our judicial process until I became actively involved in trying to protect 10 innocent children from being booted out in the street by our own government.
The story I am about to tell you has captured my heart and concern. I will not by any means attempt to distort any facts. I will allow you as a citizen to decide for yourself, whether booting 10 innocent children out in the street is justified. Quite frankly, I am outraged that our own government can displace innocent children without the slightest shame.
I made my first speaking appearance of my campaign and, more significantly, of my life, in Princeton on Thursday night.
The venue was the Unitarian Church (home turf). The audience was the Gay People of Princeton. The occasion was a Congressional candidates night that included yours truly and the Democratic contenders - Rush Holt and Carl Mayer. The Republican incumbent, Mike Pappas declined the invite. I wonder why?
I was invited by the distinguished Hunterdon LP organizer Rob Tannnen while our candidate for Princeton Town Council, Tom Abrams turned out to lend moral support. Thanks, guys.
