Overdevelopment, Eminent Domain

Like others, I have grave concerns about Mr. Corzine and his actual commitment to issues that matter to me. I seem to recall him also being on the side of sprawl in the Edison mayoral race.

If Corzine came up with a plan to deal with overdevelopment and stop sprawl, (and spoke out against the eminent domain ruling) I would support his campaign strongly. Otherwise, I may not even vote for him.

From the Corzine for Governor web site:

Just a few years ago, New Jersey experienced one of the worst droughts in its history, reminding us that water is a scarce commodity in our state. Jon Corzine will focus on preserving key, undeveloped parcels of land surrounding New Jersey's drinking water sources - and keep fresh, clean drinking water available for all residents.

Stopping "Fast-Track" Decisions That Harm the Environment In recent years, New Jersey adopted a wrong-headed policy that 'fast-tracks' developers' permits without allowing for a smart review of environmental considerations. Jon Corzine believes this is bad for our natural environment and will only contribute to sprawl.

Jon Corzine has made clear that this 'fast-track' law can't stay the way it is. The law treats a permit for building next to a drinking water reservoir, and a permit for building in a downtown urban area, the same way.

Jon Corzine will replace this law - allowing a streamlined permitting process for urban areas, but guaranteeing discussion and fact-based review before we build on precious lands. With sprawl and pollution eroding the quality of life in our state, the environmental community and the public must have a seat at the table in these decisions about land use.

I encourage you to read the Corzine for Governor web site if you are interested in what he will do as Governor.  It's all there.

Thanks Matt

. . . but I can't seem to find anything about election reform on the site.  Perhaps you could provide a link.

By the way, election reform, including verified voting, was adopted as one of the top 3 goals for NJ DFA at our planning summit in April, attended by Meetup leaders from around the state.

Kind regards,

voting reform

Corzine doesn't have a proposal on that for the state; I believe that's Senate-side, but I'm not sure.  Regardless, I know voting is something he considers very seriously; Congressman Holt wouldn't have endorsed him otherwise.
