  • Why the Mazzeo as Patton TV ad is the best of the season

    By Ed Sheppard | The Save Jersey Blog So two nights ago, I was out having some drinks with a lovely young woman I have been on a few dates with. She lives in the 2nd district, is a Republican, but isn’t a political junkie. She’s well informed, stays up on the news, she even asked […]

  • Sweeney’s North Jersey casino plan is a complete fantasy

    By Ed Sheppard | The Save Jersey Blog State Senate President Steve Sweeney gave an interview to PolitickerNJ last week, Save Jerseyans, and his comments about Atlantic City and gambling have me questioning the man’s state of mind. “Look, it’s not the most popular thing to talk about casinos in Northern New Jersey, but the […]

  • I Told AC to Land a Comic Con! And it’s coming in May…

    By Ed Sheppard | The Save Jersey Blog Save Jerseyans, since I started writing about South Jersey job creation, and jobs for Atlantic City in particular, there has been one thing I’ve consistently said the beleaguered Boardwalk Empire needs to pursue: landing a Comic Con. Atlantic City wants to expand its convention business, and has been doing a […]

  • I swear, I’m not a Democratic consultant!

    By Ed Sheppard | The Save Jersey Blog Save Jerseyans, I feel the need to clear something up: I’m not a Democratic consultant. Our savvier readers may’ve noticed how, on a regular basis, ideas or approaches suggested by our Save Jersey contributors are ultimately adopted… …by Democrats. It happened again this week. On January 20th, as part of Save […]

  • See You at the Borgata!

    By Ed Sheppard | The Save Jersey Blog Save Jerseyans, you may recall that I am looking forward to attending Assemblyman Jon Bramnick’s Republican event at the Borgata on Monday. If you don’t, guess what, I’m looking forward to it. And if you’re going to be there, AND you want to see the GOP pick […]

  • My Jobs Ideas Weren’t Crazy, Naysayers

    By Ed Sheppard | The Save Jersey Blog Save Jerseyans, when I did my series on ideas for job creation, predictably, some naysayers came out to say “never gonna happen.” Now, I’m no stranger to criticism; in fact, with this series, I would be glad to see meaningful criticism, as I admitted I am not […]

  • NJGOP Needs to Make Gas Tax a Major 2015 Issue

    By Ed Sheppard | The Save Jersey Blog In case you missed it over the weekend, Save Jerseyans, Matt Rooney wrote about how Jon Bramnick stopped in Bergen County, flanked by GOP legislators, and urged residents to “don’t move” in favor of voting for Republicans this November. This message was in response to Mercedes leaving New Jersey […]

  • Our Rights Up in Smoke? Please Help This Woman Get a Common Sense Ruling

    By Ed Sheppard | The Save Jersey Blog Save Jerseyans: something was brought to my attention last night. If this woman loses her court fight, it will open the door to further (and dramatic) infringements upon citizen’s property rights; the potential negative impact for thousands of hard working New Jerseyans is hard to fathom. Here are the […]

  • Things I’m Looking Forward to for South Jersey’s 2015

    By Ed Sheppard | The Save Jersey Blog Save Jerseyans, it’s easy to look at the negative. It really is. So I am going to take a moment to only look at the positive and tell you some of the (political) things I am looking forward to this year. Helping Re-Elect Assemblyman Sam Fiocchi in […]

  • Brown Package: Much Better for Atlantic City than Mazzeo’s Plan

    By Ed Sheppard | The Save Jersey Blog In response to Assemblyman Vince Mazzeo’s (really bad) proposal for Atlantic City, Save Jerseyans, Assemblyman Chris Brown has come up with a competing, comprehensive plan to save Atlantic City. So much like I analyzed Mazzeo’s plan, I will analyze Brown’s plan. And I can say this with […]

  • Mazzeo’s Package: Wrong for Atlantic City

    By Ed Sheppard | The Save Jersey Blog Assemblyman Vince Mazzeo put his name on the Assembly version of Steve Sweeney’s Atlantic City aid bills which just cleared the Appropriations panel on a strict 6-3 party line vote. And after taking a look at this plan and its 5 main points, in my opinion it […]
