Press Release from Congressman Smith

In the days ahead, we will get everyone up to speed on reactions from all officials who were instrumental in supporting NOPE's grassroots effort to get the Navy to end its public housing plan for NWS Earle.

Here is a press release from Congressman Chris Smith, and, otherwise, we have heard from Senator Robert Menendez's office and anticipate some kind of announcement or event from his office very shortly. We would encourage all elected officials who backed NOPE to organize a joint press conference, for it was the collective bipartisan efforts of individuals on many levels of government who made NOPE a success.

Meanwhile, we are trying to track down the full story for a headline posted Sunday to, which reads Tinton Falls board seeks ruling on defunct Earle plan. At the moment, we can only speculate this pertains to the Board of Education's legal efforts to reverse a state law that some interpreted to suggest the borough's K-8 school district could have been obligated to educate Laurelwood civilian residents, but will follow up with officials on this today as time allows.
