District Four Coalition for Change
Mission and Purpose
On behalf of all residents of New Jersey’s 4th Congressional District, local members of issue advocacy groups are mobilizing together with a common goal:
Get Congressman Chris Smith to become responsive to all his constituents so he can better act on our behalf in Washington.
Experience has shown that Congressman Smith fails to engage with NJ4 Citizens and other public interest groups on the issues that matter. Examples include:
Failure to hold Town Hall meetings
Refusal to debate his opponents
"Wait listing" individuals and groups that request meetings with him
Often not responding to press requests for statements on current issues
We demand an active, frequent, ongoing dialogue. Starting today, we request that Congressman Smith:
Hold local Town Hall meetings
Participate in public debates with other Congressional candidates
Move faster through the “wait list” of individuals and groups that request to meet with him
Increase communication with local press
Congressman Smith is positioned to speak for us, yet he doesn’t speak with us. We deserve a congressman who talks with residents and uses his status to advance policies that are aligned with our interests.
Residents of NJ-4 will no longer accept a congressperson who fails to interact with those people he is sworn to represent. We deserve better. We deserve our voices be heard and accurately represented on the federal level. FIND DISTRICT 4 COALITION FOR CHANGE ON FACEBOOK AND LIKE US.
