NJOA Endorses Chris Christie for Governor
It’s Simply the Right Thing to Do!
Belmar, NJ --(AmmoLand.com)-The trustees of the New Jersey Outdoor Alliance are excited to announce that we are endorsing Mr. Chris Christie for Governor of New Jersey.
Mr. Christie has pledged his commitment to our state’s conservation efforts and environmental stewardship. In return, it is imperative that the outdoor community provide their full support to Mr. Christie.
During the past two years the outdoor community has made great strides in advancing legislation in New Jersey. In doing so we have reached out to both sides of the political aisle and the majority of democrats and republicans have responded. Of course, it is always important to build relationships with any legislator interested in conservation, regardless of political affiliation.
However, anglers, hunters, trappers, foresters and ocean ecologists are presented with a greater challenge than moving legislation – the agencies charged with environmental stewardship are being gutted, financially raided and the science needed to properly manage our natural resources is being influenced by political agendas. In fact, we are witnessing the use of animal rights initiatives as the basis for establishing policy in the name of natural resource management. These initiatives are an abdication of our government’s role to ensure environmental stewardship and public safety. This must be immediately reversed.
The trustees of the NJOA strongly believe that initiating change at the top will best address the greater challenges that face all of us. There is risk, but it is the type of risk that we must be willing to accept if we are to return natural resource management to the capable hands of those committed to the precepts of conservation.
The NJOA endorsement of Mr. Christie is an act of leadership by the outdoor community; a message that states we are unwavering in our commitment to conservation, and that we are ready to rebuild the framework of a healthy ecosystem. To this end, Mr. Christie has personally pledged his commitment to work together with the outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen of New Jersey.
The future you want for your outdoor enjoyment depends on your involvement. Please join us and “get out the vote” for Chris Christie.
It is simply the right thing to do.
Thank you,Anthony P. Mauro, Sr.
