Supporters of Liberty State Park,

Liberty State Park, enjoyed by people of all backgrounds - a "symphony of brotherhood"- to use Martin Luther King's phrase, is in major danger of commercialization and privatization.

I urge people to call Governor Christie at 609-292-6000 and urge him to conditionally veto A3969, the Meadowlands bill, until the Liberty State Park language is removed. Hopefully, the Governor will do the right thing and not dishonor Lady Liberty and desecrate park, a national treasure.

Assembly bill 3969, on Governor Christie?s desk, had last minute language - shamefully inserted with no public discussion - which gives blank check power to a Meadowlands development commission, whose members include the NJ Sports and Exposition Authority, ?to evaluate, approve and implement any plan for Liberty State Park?.

For news stories and editorials and the JC Parks Coalition sign on letter for organizations (almost 50 so far), please go to

If Governor Christie signs this bill, he will be facilitating the ramrodding of unpopular and wrong-headed development plans into this priceless American public space, a sacred park as it is scarce urban open space and sacred as it is the neighbor of Lady Liberty and Ellis Island. The overwhelming majority has always wanted a free and green urban state park.

Sam Pesin, president of The Friends of LSP and the son of Morris Pesin, LSP's "father"
