After serving as Mayor of Long Hill Township, Gina founded Courage to Connect NJ. As Executive Director, Gina has worked with residents and elected officials across the state to address our stratospheric property taxes. Courage to Connect NJ is devoted to supporting the consolidation of New Jersey’s 565 municipalities to eliminate inefficiencies and unnecessary administrative costs which will reduce property taxes.

The reduction of property taxes is the foundation of Gina’s platform. Additionally, she supports the regionalization of all New Jersey school districts into pre-K-12 districts, building affordable housing for the working poor (currently 37% of households in the state), and improving our state’s infrastructure to keep New Jersey moving while protecting the environment.

Gina is taking no corporate donations or funding from PACs for her campaign. Her staff is mostly young people who want to get involved and see real change in their home state.

We hope you’ll be there on October 1st to meet the candidate and spread the word. RSVP on the Facebook event page here or email team@gina4njgovernor.com with the subject line “Oct 1 Meet and Greet” with name and number of people planning to attend. We will be accepting donations by check or credit card only. We hope to see you there, and we hope you’ll keep believing in New Jersey!
