On Earth Day, Let's Work to Preserve our Open Spaces

Take a look at my op-ed in the Star Ledger today, where Senator Bob Smith and I celebrate Earth Day by renewing our commitment to preserving New Jersey's open space.DSC_0982new.jpg

Our bill will ensure that we are able to preserve our remaining open space, and allow future generations to enjoy our state's natural wonders.


"We are blessed in New Jersey with a beautiful and green state. Our family farms supply us with Jersey Fresh produce and encompass a big part of our economy. Our verdant forests provide us with places to wander and wonder and at the same time protect our aquifers so we have clean water to drink. Our urban parks offer us a safe place to play with our kids and help keep our communities healthy and vibrant.

New Jersey is the crossroads of the American Revolution and the Blueberry Capital of the World. We have coastlines that rival the best in the country and mountains that will take your breath away."
