Waste committee chairman speaks in favor of New Jersey issue
TRENTON, New Jersey: John F. McKeon, Assembly Environment and Solid Waste Committee chairman, spoke at a voter awareness campaign about the New Jersey Open Space Bond Issue on September 29, 2009. The campaign, sponsored by the Keep It Green Coalition and held in Trenton, saw the assemblyman urge citizens to vote yes on the issue on November 3, 2009.
McKeon stated: "We are in a race against time to protect and preserve our natural resources including our pristine watersheds, valuable farmland, historic sites and flood-prone areas. The loss of land is permanent and irreversible and there are a finite number of undeveloped acres in our state, the most densely populated in the nation."
