Says Same Concerns Over Openness and Transparency That She Had with Reform Jersey Now, Center for a Better New Jersey Still Apply
TRENTON – In a letter to the individuals behind One New Jersey, a recent 501(c)(4) advocacy group that was started to voice opposition to Governor Christie’s policies which are negatively affecting New Jersey’s families, Senator Loretta Weinberg called on the organization to disclose its donors and comply with the spirit of openness and transparency.
“When Governor Christie and New Jersey Republicans used two separate tax-exempt non-profit organizations in thinly-veiled attempts to get around campaign finance and transparency rules, I raised objections,” wrote Senator Weinberg, D-Bergen. “Those same objections apply to ONENJ, regardless of whether or not I agree with the message or mission of the organization. We should be able to combat the Governor’s destructive policies and out-of-touch politics while still being true to our own convictions of open, accountable government.”
