FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE APRIL 11, 2016
The Board of Directors of Building A Better New Jersey Together today formally announced the formation of the organization, which will be an issues-based entity focused on developing policy solutions to secure prosperity for New Jersey’s families. Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno will serve as Honorary Chair of the organization.
Building A Better New Jersey Together (BBNJT) has been registered and incorporated with the State Treasurer as a 501c4, defined by the IRS as “an organization not organized for profit but operated exclusively for the promotion of social welfare.”
“I am excited to serve as Honorary Chair of Building A Better New Jersey Together because we can overcome any challenge facing our state if we harness the passion, diversity and power of our people’s ideas,” said Guadagno. “Too many elected officials think that every good idea is their own. I know that the best solutions to our state’s challenges will come not from Trenton, but rather by bringing together the brightest minds from all around our state.”
BBNJT’s founding Board of Directors is Jerry Langer, Lisa Camooso-Miller, and Jennifer Krimko. Bill Stepien will serve as an advisor and as the organization’s Executive Director.
“Too many New Jerseyans are scared for their future, and they have grown tired of seeing politicians running around the state trying to score political points instead of focusing on tackling the issues affecting our state’s families,” noted Guadagno. “We owe it to the residents of our state to focus on developing the policies that will fix our state, not the politics that too often doom it.”
BBNJT’s mission statement is defined as: Decades of political divisiveness in Trenton has left our state at a crisis point that threatens New Jersey’s hard-working families. The causes of our state’s crisis are so deep-rooted and complex that input and contributions from all New Jerseyans are required to solve these pressing problems once and for all. Building A Better New Jersey Together will strive to unite New Jerseyans around the shared goal of a smaller, more efficient government that fights for our middle class families and protects our most vulnerable, all while opening opportunities for the residents of our state to enjoy a more prosperous future.
