  • 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.

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 […]

  • Atlantic Dems and Republicans Publicly Disagree with Mazzeo

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Vince Mazzeo needs some new advisers. The freshman Assemblyman offered a weak sauce defense against gaming expansion into North Jersey back in November, saying only that “that’s for another time, another day down the road. Hopefully, way down the road.” Not exactly a “no” right? But regardless of where you […]

  • In Wake of NYPD Assassinations, South Jersey Residents Rally Behind Police

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Update: Here’s video of Friday’s amazing event courtesy of Harry Hurley… Between 150 and 300+ (depending on whose count your trust) including dignitaries such as Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R, NJ-02) turned out on the Atlantic City Boardwalk today to rally in support of American law enforcement following the cold-blooded murder of two […]

  • Mazzeo Plan: Property Tax Increase Takes it From Wrong to Worse

    By Ed Sheppard | The Save Jersey Blog Just few days ago, Save Jerseyans, I posted about how bad Vince Mazzeo’s plan for Atlantic City was and that is was the wrong plan. Well, it just went from wrong to worse. One thing I noted at the time was that Vince Mazzeo neglected to include Atlantic County […]

  • 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 […]

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog You likely haven’t visited yet, Save Jerseyans, or maybe even heard about it, but it’s the portal for a statewide Republican Party function, hosted by Assembly Republican Victory (ARV), at the Borgota Hotel Casino in Atlantic City.  Details?

  • Bringing Jobs to South Jersey: Craft Beer

    By Ed Sheppard | The Save Jersey Blog Atlantic, Cumberland and Cape May Counties have, historically, had the highest unemployment in the state. And now things are likely going from bad to worse with casino closures in Atlantic City. That’s the situation on paper. On the ground, living here, it pains me, every time, when […]

  • OPINION: $50 Million for Camden High is Money Down the Toilet

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog I can point to many wasteful education expenditures in this state that Governor Chris Christie can’t circumvent thanks to a Democratic Senate-guaranteed liberal bent of New Jersey Supreme Court; they stubbornly continue to legislate education funding policy from the bench. Only a GOP-controlled State Senate is going to […]
