Brief NOPE update from political liaison Elaine Mann

Elaine informs the NOPE community that Senator Beck will be a guest of Anita Velardo this Sunday morning at 8a on "The Breeze Knows" (107.1 and 99.7 FM) to discuss a range of topics, including S762--legislation in the Senate that would order the NJ Treasurer to conduct and issue a cost-benefits analysis of proposed civilian housing at NWS Earle before the DEP or DOT could issue permits to the Navy for construction of an unimpeded access road to Laurelwood homes.

Also on that front, the Colts Neck Town Committee passed a resolution last night in support of S762, on the heels of a similar move by Tinton Falls Borough Council. NOPE continues to appreciate the unwavering support of our elected town/borough officials in fighting the Department of Navy's plan to expose NWS Earle as the next Ground Zero and in the process stick us with a $300-$500 million unfunded mandate.
