Don’t let $20 million in NJ tax dollars be handed to a private developer!

    1. Petition by

      Edison Wetlands Association

A politically connected, ultra-wealthy developer is using New Jersey hard-earned tax dollars to construct a huge housing development atop a 425-acre radioactive toxic waste site on the Raritan River in Sayreville, New Jersey.   

Please tell your New Jersey elected officials to withdraw this absurd waste of scarce tax dollars, and call for an immediate investigation into potential penalties surrounding this fraudulent funding through New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, New Jersey Economic Development Authority and State Attorney General.  With schools, hospitals and roads and bridges falling apart due to difficult economic times, it would be ridiculous to allow – and encourage – a developer to get away with misusing funds and misleading New Jersey on a multi-million dollarwaste of taxpayer dollars that the developer was never eligible to receive.

Act now to put an end to this fraudulent spending!

      This could help the poor and keep more and more people from going poor. The recession we're facing now could go worse than the great depression or be just as bad.

      This is to help with the economic downturn. I have a petition below that’s for the economy and ridiculous gas prices and other things affecting us. Let’s sign mine. I need 1,000 signatures in total.

      We should also take a stand against greed. I blamed it all on high gas prices for driving schools on waiting lists. It's common sense for first time learners for driving to have behind the wheel for car insurance reduction and most important safety of learning.

      We are taking stands against greed as well. You people who signed this petition should sign mine if you haven't. The author of this petition should sign mine on the link as well if haven’t.

      There’s also a petition on sign on. Here’s that link below as it’s for the reshaping the world to improve our lives.

      Deforestation and unsustainable development aren't worth the money.

      Anytime there is privitazation of public or toxic lands, there is always a caviot for what they assume the cost will be. My first question will be, where are they planing to put all this radioactive waste? We have a sludge site like this in the Fl. town I live in that is fenced off and they are still testing the residence for long term affects of exposure.
