One year ago today, I participated in a Candidates Forum for New Jersey State Senate. This year I’m looking forward to participating in the Candidates Forum for the 5th congressional district, which will be held Wednesday, October 24 at 7:30 PM in the Westwood Regional High School. Hope to see you there.
Last night I spoke at a District 5 Candidate Forum, hosted by a coalition of Independent Living organizations. I answered questions and told them how Libertarian proposals in employment, housing, and transportation can address challenges their constituents face each day.
From October 19th until the end of the year, the US Federal Government is spending money it doesn’t have to the tune of about $11 billion per day. It will need to be paid back, with interest, by our children. I will work to end this.

The graveyard of empires. We can't impose a liberal, democratic government on a country unable/unwilling to accept it. Trillions of dollars spent. $43 billion continuing each year. $100B spent so far on building their infrastructure (double what our highway trust fund spends each year). I will work with Rep. Massie to bring our involvement to an end.
Great turnout today at the 9th Annual Fall Festival in Township of Washington. Pleased to see so many potential voters, as I continue my campaign.
Just received the latest attack mailer from one of the old-party candidates in the fifth congressional district. This one has a cartoon of his opponent with ice cream on his face. What is this, middle school? What’s next, an actual food fight? If you’re truly sick of the two old parties, they’ll never change as long as you keep voting for either of them. If you keep saying you’d like a third choice, you have one. Your move.
Stopped by the "Coffee With A Cop" event this morning in my home town, Twp. of Washington. Had an opportunity to speak with Chief of Police Glenn Hooper and his fellow officers about the relationship between local, county, state, and Federal law enforcement. And to let them know they have a third choice for Congress in November.
Enjoyed speaking with voters this evening at a meeting of the Harrington Park Historical Society. We were also treated to a lecture on the Baylor Massacre, which occurred in Bergen County during the American Revolution.
Enjoyed campaigning Saturday with Murray Sabrin for U.S. Senate at BaronFest, hosted by the Bergen County Historical Society. I am a proud supporter of the Society which, like the Libertarian Party, is dedicated to the founding principles of our country.
The United States Library of Congress has selected this website for inclusion in the Library's historic collection of Internet materials related to the United States Election 2018. They wrote: "We consider your website to be an important part of this collection and the historical record." (They have a one year embargo, meaning that the site won’t be available in their archives until the end of 2019.) But please continue to visit the actual site.
This is great news for choice and competition in education. And, based on our daughter's personal experience in a Montessori pre- / K-8 school, he has picked the best student-centered learning curriculum, which will prepare students well for the opportunities and challenges of the 21st century.
The J&B Duo (Bob DeVito, guitar/vocals) and Jim Tosone (Bass) enjoyed performing yesterday for the residents of Longview at Christian Health Care Center in Wyckoff.
Bergen County voters: this November, please vote column 3 - Murray Sabrin for Senate and James Tosone for House of Representatives.
Based on my policy positions on spending, taxes, debt, education, healthcare, and infrastructure, the Conservative Party of New Jersey has endorsed me as their candidate for Congress in NJ-5. I will continue to work with all organizations on issues where we have common cause in advancing liberty and limiting government.
Rather than speculate on why Ms. Wright failed to include me in her article, I will merely inform the registered voters in the fifth congressional district (42% of them registered Unaffiliated) that I am the Libertarian Party candidate for Congress. While the media continues to act as a free publicity machine for the two old parties, I will continue to work to get my message out. In the meantime, I challenge Ms. Wright to visit my website or interview me.
Ballotpedia is the encyclopedia of American Politics. They create pages for the candidates and ask them to respond to their survey questions. Scroll down to the Campaign Themes section of my page to see my responses.
I filled out the League of Women Voters' Candidate Questionnaire. Here is my answer to Q5 (of 5):
What measures do you support to improve and secure elections and voting in our country?
To secure and improve elections, I will work to:
• Require that all electronic voting machines produce a paper receipt, which can then be verified by the voter and given to a poll worker
• Institute Ranked Choice Voting, which will ensure all elected candidates receive a majority (as opposed to a plurality) of the votes cast
• Eliminate election laws and regulations that disadvantage third-party and independent candidates (e.g., taxpayer-funded primaries and favored ballot position for the two major parties)
Once the Democratic and Republican Senators have finished their speeches, let's hope they ask these important questions relating to Constitutional interpretation: Congressional Power, Executive Power, Unenumerated Rights, Judicial Engagement, and Searches/Seizures.
The League of Women Voters of Bergen County is planning a candidates forum for Congressional District 5 on Wednesday, October 24. I have accepted the invitation to participate. Location, time, and further information will be forthcoming at a later date.
