Meet New Jersey’s 2 most conservative lawmakers

The American Conservative Union has announced the 2018 recipients of its “Award for Conservative Excellence,” and the two top scorers represent Warren County.

That’s fitting, given Republicans outnumber Democrats in Warren County by a 2 to 1 margin, or 29,665 to 16,910 among registered voters as of the June 4 primary election.

The conservative group says it presented state Sen. Michael Doherty and Assemblyman Parker Space with its top ranking award for voting 90 to 100 percent on bills that focus on former President Ronald Reagan’s philosophy of the “three legged stool” of issues: 1, fiscal and economic: taxes, budgets, regulation, spending, healthcare and property; 2, social and cultural: Second Amendment, religion, life, welfare and education; and 3, government integrity: voting, individual liberty, privacy and transparency.

Republican Assemblymen for the 23rd District John DiMaio and Erik Peterson were presented with the second tier “Award for Conservative Achievement” for 80 to 89 percent voting records in the American Conservative Union’s scoring.

The union goes on, in its “2018 Winners Losers,” to single out 21 members of the state Senate and 44 members of the Assembly as part of a “Coalition of the Radical Left” for a ranking of 10 percent or less on the Reagan principles.

## ## As the New Jersey Senate highest rated conservative lawmaker for 2018, Doherty received a 96 percent ranking. Constitution,” Doherty said in a statement on the award. “If a bill may hamper citizens’ rights or heighten taxes, I will stand up and do what’s right for the people of New Jersey. My voting history speaks for itself I am proud to be a fiscally conservative leader in the great Garden State.”

The goals are to move the police department out of its mold infested space and avoid $7K a day in state penalties.

Space says he earned the highest grades of any legislator in the state, earning the ACU’s top award for a fifth consecutive year; he has been honored every year he served in the Legislature.

“The American Conservative Union has long been known across the country as the leading voice of the conservative movement and I am honored they have recognized our work to lower the cost of government and opposing liberal social policies,” Space said in a statement. “Our approach stands in stark contrast to the massive new increases in taxes and spending that the Democrat leadership in the governor’s office and legislature are imposing on beleaguered taxpayers.”

The American Conservative Union is described as the nation’s oldest conservative grassroots organization. It expanded its ACU Congressional Ratings program to the New Jersey State Legislature in 2013, grading members on their votes on key conservative issues.

“Our team will wear these uniforms every Friday home

Lehigh Valley IronPigs unveil new Friday night jerseys

These jerseys will be replacing the black “Molten” jerseys that previously were worn on Friday nights. This also is the first jersey unveiling since 2018, when the IronPigs introduced their maroon Sunday uniforms.

“These uniforms represent what we as an organization think of our fans the ‘gold standard’ in Minor League Baseball,” IronPigs President/General Manager Kurt Landes said in a statement. “Our team will wear these uniforms every Friday home game knowing that they have the best fans in Minor League Baseball behind them. Symbolically, these Gold Standard uniforms will be the epitome of what being an IronPigs fan is all about.”

The “Gold Standard” initiative was brought to life when the IronPigs were awarded the Larry MacPhail Award in October. The annual award acknowledges the top marketing and promotional Minor League Baseball team.

In addition to winning the industry’s most coveted award, the IronPigs have won more Golden Bobbleheads (5) than any other team in baseball. Golden Bobble awards are given to the year’s top promotions and events within Minor League Baseball. The “Gold Standard” uniforms are a direct tribute to IronPigs fans whose support has allowed for the organizations’ numerous successes since the franchise’s inception in 2008.

The uniforms will feature a gold base with “IronPigs” across the chest in metallic gold with black trim. A black stripe will be at the base of each sleeve with a “Gold Standard” patch, featuring five gold stars, on the left sleeve. The five stars represent the top rating of the IronPigs and their fans. The team will also be wearing all gold caps with a gold liquid chrome IronPigs logo on the front with five stars located on the side.
