Christie expected at Sportsmen's rally in Jefferson

JEFFERSON — Sportsmen from across the state will hold a rally with Gov. Chris Christie expected to attend, on Sunday afternoon at the Camp Jefferson Amphitheatre on Weldon Road.
The 4:30 p.m. rally is to show the governor “that we appreciate the accomplishments made on our behalf during the past four years,” said Anthony P. Mauro Sr., who heads the New Jersey Outdoor Alliance, a political action committee focused on hunting, fishing and conservation issues. Among issues to be discussed are the state Marine Fisheries Bureau which, NJOA believes needs more attention and funding to support and sustain recreational and commercial fishing, a $2 billion industry for the state.

Also to be brought up are issues such as improved forest habitat and implementation of forest management methods.

The Sportsmen’s group announced the rally to its members in an email that includes the statement “Meet Governor Christie.”
The governor’s campaign office said Sunday’s appearance is part of a scheduled bus tour of the state which begins Wednesday and will include Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno or the governor or both at various stops over the seven days of the tour.

The Sportsmen’s Rally began in 2007 with gatherings in Mullica Hill and Clarksburg, followed by the Rescue Our Outdoors Rally in New Egypt.

The NJOA grew out of those rallies and, according to Mauro, “helped to change the political landscape of New Jersey while highlighting the important contributions made by the nearly one million sportsmen and women” of the state.

When Christie ran four years ago against then-Gov. Jon Corzine, returning a bear hunt to the fall hunting calendar was a major campaign issues with the rallies held to show support for Christie’s position that he would allow the hunts to go ahead.

Corzine had stopped implementation of the state’s black bear management plan and, the courts said, without a management plan in place, there could be no hunt.
Beginning in early December 2010, the state has held a successful six-day bear hunt to coincide with the annual shotgun deer season. This year’s hunt is scheduled for Dec. 9-14.
Christie is running for re-election this year as a Republican, facing the Democrat candidate, Barbara Buono. Minor party candidates in the race include: William Araulo, independent; Jeff Boss independent; Kenneth R. Kaplan, New Jersey Libertarian Party; Diane Sare, Glass-Steagall Now; Hand Schroeder, independent; and Steve Welzer, Green Party of New Jersey.

Mauro said Christie “has recognized the importance of protecting and advancing our freedoms to fish and hunt in New Jersey,” and said among those efforts were naming an NJOA officer to his transition team; signing the 150-foot safety perimeter bill for bow hunting, signed the Hooked on Fishing ,Not on Drugs bill; and prioritized the importance of the Division of Fish and Wildlife.
He said the governor has also helped develop a plan to resolve the fixed gear issue on state reefs and asked the federal government to do the same on federal reefs.

The issue had been that fixed gear, or semi-permanent fishing lines and pots, used mostly by commercial fishermen, were allowed on and near state-created fishing reefs in saltwater areas of the state. The gear is considered by recreational anglers to interfere with their ability to catch fish.

More than 24 organizations, ranging from fishing and hunting groups to forestry organizations and dive clubs are members of the NJOA, which officially endorsed Christie’s candidacy in late September.

NJOA: A mother's story you must read
 

"I want to share a story I heard from my mother that underscores how closely Governor Christie will be paying attention to the upcoming Sportsmen's Rally. This afternoon my mother had the opportunity to meet Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno when she stopped by to thank some local campaign workers. My mother said to her, "Did you know that the sportsmen are having a rally for Governor Christie this Sunday?" and Lt. Gov. Guadagno said with a smile, "Yes, he talked for days about the sportsmen's rally held for him 4 years ago in New Egypt." [name witheld for privacy]

Governor Christie appreciates sportsmen and women. Let's return the appreciation by attending the rally!
