Christie: Go Write Your Own Story

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Flanked by fair weather legislative allies Steve Sweeney and Donald Norcross on a less-than-beautiful May day, Governor Chris Christie delivered the 2014 Rowan University commencement address on Friday and shared a simple but powerful message with graduates of South Jersey’s largest institution of higher learning… about his grandmother. Worth the share: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNfBmqqm-j4

When We Stood with the Laut

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Here’s another memory on the day of Frank Lautenberg’s passing: Save Jersey found itself in extraordinarily odd ideological company back in early 2012, Save Jerseyans, when we took a stand against the Rutgers-Rowan merger proposal spearheaded by Governor Christie and South Jersey Democrats and vociferously opposed by liberal North Jersey Democrats weary of the […]

A College Republican Reflection

By Matthew Gilson | The Save Jersey Blog Last week, I graduated from Seton Hall University with a degree in political science, Save Jerseyans, but like most people who read this website some of my fondest memories involve politics.

He Is Who He Is

Chris Christie is his own man, Save Jerseyans. Usually he’s “right” (figuratively and literally). Less often he’s wrong. But I’ve never doubted for one moment that this Governor does what he thinks is best for the people of New Jersey, and his good friends at Save Jersey will continue to try and nudge the Guv and his caucus in the […]

Save Rutgers: Christie to Sign Rut-Row ‘Collaboration’ Bill Today

Today is the day. After months of battling back and forth with students, faculty, and concerned citizens in South Jersey, Governor Christie will be signing a new Rutgers bill that is immensely watered down from the vision he outlined in January of this year.

Save Rutgers: Rut-Row Bill Passes Both Assembly and Senate

This afternoon the Rut-Row Bill passed the New Jersey Senate and Assembly by wide margins. In the Senate the vote was 29 – 10. Most of the Nays were Northern Democrats at war with the Norcross Machine. Senator Diane Allen (R-7) also voted no, for which I congratulate her on her courage to go against […]

Save Rutgers: They Took My Advice and Amended the Rut-Row Bill (UPDATE)

Because the amended bill has not yet been released on the New Jersey Legislature’s website (at least at the time of this writing), I was in the middle of writing a scathing article about how the Rutgers Board of Governors threw the Rutgers Camden campus under the bus at the last minute. However, I then […]

Save Rutgers: North Jersey Dems Will Derail Rut-Row Plan (For Now)

If one thing has always amazed me about politics in New Jersey, it is that you can always count on the respective parties to exert more energy on intra-party guerrilla warfare than they do on actual campaigns against each other. We see this on the GOP side for sure all of the time, exhibit A […]

Save Rutgers: The Devil is in the Details…Analysis Coming Soon

Today during my bar exam review class my phone started going crazy. After weeks of relative silence on the Rut-Row merger, news had finally broke. I kind of wish I had asked Senator Norcross to drop the bill on a Friday when I met with him a few weeks back, because this 87 page bill […]

Save Rutgers: Could Rob Andrews Be the Next Rowan President?

As we wait for the written draft of the bill that will eventually reorganize higher education in New Jersey yet again, I thought some fun speculation might be in order.
