A new Tea Party caucus has formed in New Jersey. Tea Party activists hope that the major parties will pay attention and listen to them.
What is the Tea Party caucus made of?
According to their press release, the Tea Party caucus includes several active Tea Party and “like-minded” organizations in New Jersey. But a person can join the Tea Party caucus apart from any other organization. Furthermore, the Tea Party caucus looks forward to recruiting other people and organizations.
RoseAnn Salanitri, founder of Sussex County Tea Party Patriots, is also the head of the new Tea Party caucus. She said that she wants “average citizens of New Jersey to become a force to be reckoned with.”
We are tired of being manipulated by career politicians and frustrated by do-gooders who mean well but accomplish nothing of any significance.
Is the Tea Party caucus Republican only?
No. Mark Falzon, the Vice-President of the Tea Party Caucus, is a registered Democrat.
As citizens of NJ, we will not go quietly into that good night while our state is ravaged by an out-of-control judicial system and unresponsive representatives. Many of us have stood together to voice our objections to numerous issues only to be ignored or lied to. As we join forces with others throughout the state, they will not be able to ignore us any longer.
What does the Tea Party caucus plan to concentrate on?
Their press release listed four issues:
- Judicial reform,
- School reform,
- Permanent repeal of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, and
- Abolition of the Council on Affordable Housing.
Except for RGGI, these issues are interlocking, because court decisions are the reason for COAH, and for the current complex (some would say insane) system of school funding.
The two Tea Party Caucus leaders suggest that people contact them at:
- RoseAnn Salanitri at 862.266.3952, or email at email@example.com
- Mark Falzon at 732.865.1102, or email at: VicePresident@JerseyShoreTeaParty.org
