As of June 13 Jason Scheurer and Derek DeMarco are officially on the ballot for U.S. Senate and U.S. Congress (District 8) in New Jersey. I want to thank everyone who got involved and gathered signatures on their behalf to make this happen. (See page 2 for the Honor Roll of petitioners and the initial press release for the campaign. – Editor) It was encouraging to see so many get involved.
Going forward we will need everyone's help to run the successful campaign we are planning. You can expect to be contacted shortly by me or one of our expanding staff to ask what you can do and the level of commitment you are willing to make. There will be a role for everyone who chooses to help make this campaign successful. We will need an enormous amount of help to man the events that are planned and are going to be planned for the coming months. The campaign is starting to fall into place. Thanks for all the help so far and I think we are going to make real progress this year.
Kevin Ferrizzi and I signed the lease on June 12 to have our first New Jersey Libertarian Party office right on the Atlantic City Boardwalk from now through at least November. The new Atlantic City office is located at South Sovereign and Boardwalk, between the Tropicana and Hilton Resorts. This is a high traffic area—certainly the highest traffic area in New Jersey during the summer season—and the office opened in time for the July 4th weekend. See the picture on page 4 and feel free to pass the photo around to your friends. You are all welcome to stop by and visit.
We are located right on the Boardwalk and the office is next to the 4th of July festivities at the beach bar which features the Beach Boys, Three Dog Night, and another group for the Independence Day weekend. We are also at center stage for the August sky show that had 500,000+ visitors last year. The Borgota Open (tapping into the poker enthusiasts) is every weekend starting July and continuing through September. The office offers us huge exposure and fundraising opportunities for the NJLP to build its membership for years to come.
Plus the office provides a southern location for the Barr/Root/Scheurer campaign as well. Currently we have taken booths at two events with many more to come: July 10-13 Club Fiat-Lancia Unlimited. Event speaks for itself! Bobb Raynor is the NJLP county coordinator for Camden and Gloucester Counties and he is President of the club. This appearance is coordinated with Pennsylvania LP.
September 13 Black/Latino Expo Philadelphia Convention Center, see http://www.blacklatinoexpo.com See press release following to see the impact of this event. This is a joint venture with National and Pennsylvania LPs. We want to hear from all of you about events going on in your communities this year and ones you would like us to attend or help support. We want to be involved in as many fairs, parades, and community affairs as is possible. So let us know. Our event calendar will be posted at njlp.org Remember there will be a role for everyone so please get involved. Feel free to contact me anytime and I will hopefully see all of you soon somewhere on the campaign trail.
