Americans for Prosperity Foundation Launches “Courts Gone Wild” Educational Effort
State’s Leading Free-Market Group to Inform Citizens about the Destructive Impact of New Jersey’s Out-of-Control Supreme Court
BOGOTA, NJ – Americans for Prosperity Foundation is launching a statewide effort today to educate citizens about the destructive role the state’s activist Supreme Court has had on New Jersey’s economy and dismal tax climate.
The “Courts Gone Wild” educational campaign will include a series of more than twenty seminars on the Supreme Court to be held across the state throughout fall. The first seminar will take place on Tuesday evening, September 13 at 7:00pm, with the West Bergen Tea Party at the Larkin House located at 380 Godwin Ave. in Wyckoff, NJ.
Americans for Prosperity state director Steve Lonegan explained the impetus for the “Courts Gone Wild” program.
“Over the course of the past four decades, New Jersey has gone from an economic powerhouse to an economic basket case,” said Lonegan.
“New Jersey now has the highest tax burden in the entire nation, including the worst property taxes, the most progressive income tax, and the second highest sales tax — and our state debt has exploded into the tens of billions of dollars.
“Yet many New Jersey taxpayers are unaware that the driving force behind our suffocating tax climate, soaring debt and economic decline is an out-of-control state Supreme Court which has overstepped its constitutional authority through decades of activist rulings and mandates that have destroyed our state’s finances.”
“The time has come for New Jersey voters to learn about the court’s destructive impact and AFP Foundation intends to do that through our ‘Courts Gone Wild’ effort,” concluded Lonegan.
