Sign petitions

The task force for the siting of the USS New Jersey Battleship, 'Home Port Camden,' is busily preparing for the battleship commission's visit to Camden on July 31.

I would like to thank many people who have already shown their support for this South Jersey/Delaware Valley project. We have received more than 4,000 signatures on petitions from all over our region, and hundreds of letters, along with the C-P's coupons. We still need to do more to show the battleship commission our overwhelming support.

Copies of petitions are being circulated at all Camden County park events, the county stores in Echelon Mall and Winslow Township, the Camden County Library, and by veterans organizations, fraternal groups, as well as individual supporters and numerous others. Anyone can call my office (225-5305) for petitions, but we must have them back by July 29 so we can present them to the commission when it visits on July 31.

This has been a remarkable experience for me with everyone pulling together for a single purpose. However, it is still an uphill battle. We know we have the right spot for the USS New Jersey. Together, we must convince the commission.
