With your help, we have helped hold back the State Senate twice from rubber-stamping a Gov. Christie nominee who would replace a commissioner who is a staunch defender of the Pinelands with a close ally of pipeline supporters.

Tell the New Jersey State Senate to protect the Pinelands and block this nominee.
