Is there a Ron Paul revolution afoot in Jersey City?
According to two local Republican leaders, the answer is yes.
A recent lawsuit involving the Jersey City Republican Committee is linked, at least in part, to a handful of young Ron Paul supporters who have taken
his grassroots approach to political
“These young bloods, they’re all new to the city. They’re very enthusiastic. Many of them are Ron Paul people,” said Connelly. “I guess
because of the [Republican] presidential primary, a lot of them were looking to run for [the] committee. They came to me. I got them the necessary
paperwork and said, ‘You’re on your own. Get your petitions done. If you’re elected, you’re elected.’ And they won. I guess it was about 50
or 60 of them.”

This is great news! I've been a part of this mini Ron Paul Revolution in Jersey City since May/June. (Was elected in JUNE as a committeeman)
We had a lawsuit filed in July/August due to the local Republican parties violating their own party bylaws. They were supposed to inform all committee
members 48 hours prior to the re-organization vote, but they never informed anyone and held a secret committee meeting leaving almost everyone in
jersey city out. Once we found out, we brought our heads together and pushed this lawsuit through. A few days ago the judge ruled in our favor and
ousted the JC chairman, treasurer, and secretary. This is the first time in JC history where a judge removed a sitting chair. (EPIC WIN!)
I am sorry I've kept this a bit of a secret until now. We had to get all our ducks in a row before we showed our hands. (I've used a lot of self
control to not make a thread on this all summer!)
The revolution is alive and well. Although RP isn't at the helm, that doesn't mean anything. Our generation has to step up and take control. we
couldn't of done it without the RP campaign but we can also do this on our own as we've proven.
we're up for a new vote soon (Based off the judges decision) we don't have a tentative date yet but we have majority support to take over the party in
Jersey city. If we take jersey city then that means we take the county. If we take the county then... well guess what guys, we'll be able to influence
the whole party in the state of NJ.
