Bergen County, New Jersey. Elections. 2011. District 38. Bob Gordon. Connie Wagner. Message from the League of Humane Voters of New Jersey.

Hello Fellow Animal Lovers,

I met many of you during our successful fight to help save the future of Bergen County geese and/or our battle to save the deer of Garret Mountain. It is a pleasure to know you all, who take the time out of your busy lives to help animals. Now, I'd like to ask you to do something important. I know it's easy to be cynical about politics, but, in this case, you CAN make a difference! There is less than 1 1/2 weeks until election day and it could mean something BIG for our animals!

Because of re-districting, the most competitive race in the state is right here! - District 38 - our LOCAL district....

District 38 includes Bergenfield, Fair Lawn, Glen Rock, Hasbrouck Heights, Hawthorne (Passaic County), Lodi, Maywood, New Milford, Oradell, Paramus, River Edge, Rochelle Park and Saddle Brook.

League of Humane Voters of NJ (LOHVNJ) has endorsed State Senator Bob Gordon and Assemblywoman Connie Wagner because of their ON-RECORD VOTES to help NJ animals, including deer. (Details on bills they supported & opposed can be supplied.) At times, they went against their own party-leadership to help animals.
They need our help now. This year will be a low turn out election (which benefits their rivals) and EVERY VOTE will matter. Get your friends & family out to the polls & PLEASE, give a little volunteer time before Nov. 8th. (You don't have to live in district to volunteer.) The campaign office for the District 38 team is located at 338 President Street, Saddle Brook, NJ 07663. The campaign office phone number is 973-928-3545 website: Please speak to Adam, the volunteer coordinator. They need help in everything from dropping campaign literature in doors to making phone calls. Please give some time. ***Don't forget: When you volunteer, say you are voting in favor of animals and you are a proud member of the League of Humane Voters of NJ! Let them know that we helped :)

Don't forget to support Bergen County Freeholder David Ganz who wrote the Bergen County anti-bear hunt resolution, as well as the prohibition of geese gassing resolution, as well as fellow-Freeholder Candidate Joan Voss who, as an Assemblywoman, was a strident animal supporter.

We can start to turn the tide for NJ animals by keeping their friends in office. LOHVNJ is NON-PARTISAN. We are only supporting people who have a record of helping animals. Please act on this email. Animals can't vote, but we can - be their voice!
