This recent Alert by the Pinelands Preservation Alliance
may teach you a lot about what is proposed
at the Stafford Landfill and why it is a problem.

>>> Read Mayor Carl Block’s rebuttal and Save Barnegat Bay’s reaction to it. See what you think.

Over 150 citizens concerned with overdevelopment in Stafford Township and with the huge development proposed just southwest of Exit 63 of the Garden State Parkway attended.

Read about the meeting in Press of Atlantic City.
Among the topics of this rally and educational session were:

► The Huge Development planned for the Stafford Landfill, just west of GSP and just south of Route 72. The proposed 500 + homes and 680,000 sq. ft. of commercial/retail/office space; how it will diminish your quality of life; and what you can do. The township is pushing for Walters Homes to develop the site.

► Rampant Overdevelopment throughout Stafford. What further development is proposed and how you can reduce it. Today’s population = 24,000. Projected 2025 population = 30,000. Stafford’s proposed town “center”, and the “hamlet” and golf course proposed for Mayetta. And more.

► A discussion of how political money may be a root cause of overdevelopment in Stafford Township and in Ocean County. Did you know that Walters Homes, the proposed developer of the Stafford Landfill area, is a major contributor to the Ocean County Republican party?

WATCH THE POLITICAL MONEY FLOW:

1Walters Management gives $7,200 to to Ocean County Republican Chairman’s PAC

2Walters Management gives $32,700 to Ocean County Republican Finance Committee

3The Stafford Republican Club receives $34,660 BUT DOES NOT REPORT WHERE THEY GOT THE MONEY, as required by New Jersey’s Election Law Enforcement Commision.

4 – Also, have a look at who has been paying the freight for “The Block Team“. (Page four includes $1,250 from Walters & Sons.) (This file may take a little longer to open.)

5 – Walters Homes, in 2005 alone, gave $32,700 to the Ocean County Republican Finance Committee (#2 above). Take a look at where Carl Block got ALMOST ALL his money in his 2003 campaign for County Clerk.
