NJGOP Launches Digital Campaign To Stop Redistricting Amendment
For Immediate Release
Trenton, NJ - The New Jersey Republican State Committee has launched a paid digital advertising campaign to stop the controversial redistricting amendment being pushed through the legislature.
The campaign aims to raise awareness to the dangers of the amendment and continue to grow the coalition opposing the measure.
NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt said, "A handful of politicians have demonstrated an alarming willingness to forsake the delicate fabric of the State’s democracy by advancing a redistricting amendment that benefits them and them alone. We're standing with a diverse group of over 50 organizations from around the state that oppose this measure and we are making an early investment to stop this in its tracks. Only in New Jersey, in an era of one party rule, would government grind to halt, along with NJ Transit, so we can ignore issues like pensions and healthcare while we debate debasing the State’s Constitution.”
Chairman Steinhardt published an op-ed expanding on the pitfalls of the legislation that can be read here.
NJGOP Executive Director Theresa Winegar will be testifying in today's public hearing.
