. .......Stein, who mounted an independent challenge to Ventnor resident LoBiondo in 2008 and in 2009 ran for governor in a field of outsider candidates, has used his campaigns to call for closing the U.S.-Mexico border and taking steps to fight Mexican corruption.
Having run as a Republican in the 2009 gubernatorial race, Stein confirmed he had changed his registration to Democrat a month ago.
"I had a feeling I might be the only one," he said Monday evening.

Gary Stein XPN, the best NPR station by far! I'm the Democrat facing very long odds against an entrenched Congressman who probably doesn't give two hoots about public radio! On a completely different "note," here's a musical sampling from my web site. Guess where I first heard the song???????????
George, I'm the Dem. running against LoBiondo. Aren't you sick of the local union in Atlantic City telling you to do things for his re-election all the time?. Get behind the Dem. where you belong! What did the guy do for the auto workers? ZIP
June 5, 2010 Add Lynne as a friendLynne, I'm the Democrat running against Frank LoBiondo. I'd make a fine Republican too. I've got it all covered except for the public speaking, fund raising, networking etc. Please check me out thoroughly. I got LoBiondo beat on facebook due diligence. Please add.

I didn’t spend precious time bugging average folks for 854 signatures to get on the ballot, just to.... .......And neither is my pitch to blather on and on like the other 8 independents will about broken government, or two bad nominees. I’ve got other fish to fry, something important to say. If you’ve noticed, the 8 are rather short on specifics anyway, and I for one, rather like Chris Christie. Follow his lead and slash the payroll, cut a few departments and we’ll all be better off. That’s that in a nutshell.........

operative, “Leslie,” sends us a couple of scans and writes, “My father just called me and asked if I had read the 500 word essay on the NJ Governor’s Sample Ballot. I just did, and it is such beautiful madness, I had to share it with you.” It is a completely great essay from petition candidate Gary Stein, who is running with his wife on the “Fools Rush In” Party ticket. Let’s see what he has to say, about politics. ------------------------------------------------ New Jersey

“…… three of the 12 gubernatorial candidates in Tuesday's election returned questionnaires from Project Vote Smart soliciting their views on issues, further demonstrating the contempt incumbents and challengers alike have for the voter.”
Question: Health care Answer:[Greatly Increase]
Expanded Answer: In other "venues," where "we," were invited to go "mano y mano" with the elite establishment "favorites", I've said w/flourish and great fanfare- kill a few unimportant state agencies that were created in fat times when the taxpayer was snoozing. Take some of that saved money and "greatly increase" health care. Here's what's important about that idea. Conservatives might be so impressed that some government entity, might actually cease to exist, they'd possibly go along with Democrats attempts to transform health care; because even some Republican's have a heart. I'm Republican.

Closing Statement of Hall’s Virtual Debate ....But if I was leading the revolution here, I wouldn’t be cowed by the idea of shutting the
state government down for a while; and there certainly are endless opportunities to push the right buttons! It might give the public sector a chance to reflect. Unfortunately it’s more likely the legislature would call for my impeachment, and union pickets all over Trenton would scream and curse my name- but we’d know finally, if we the over looked and taken for granted citizens, are as mad as we say we are.

Gary Stein (Independent, multiple slogans) – Mrs. Stein did me a big favor running for the position of NJ’s- first- lieutenant governor. If we win, she can either submit her resignation on Nov. 4th, the day after, or she can focus on animal rights and health care. The former being her passion, the latter her new cause because she’s so grateful to finally have excellent coverage, and remembers those that don’t.

Here's News !!!!
While separating and sorting the cut and paste mess I made moving questions, and answers from the Project Vote Smart questionnaire I'd filled out last fall, over to here- navigation button "Since You Asked" -I came across this response (k).... I'd forgotten about it, and it's nice to see again, because the other night, on the nightly news there was a segment on Harvard University's new program to recruit school principals, and teach them managerial skills. The course is free. There's a huge waiting list.
Question about Education, and my answer
Educationk) Other or expanded principles [Answer]: Rather then go the merit pay route with teachers- and battle their union, how about merit pay for principals and
superintendents? How about giving superintendents a chance to cover two districts? No? So don't take a lesson from GM! They axed divisions and cut costs...they did it kicking and screaming ( that's the private sector, good luck with public one).
Stein, 53, who lives in Mullica, seems OK with that. “I’m probably the one candidate who knows better that we’re going to get 1 percent, half a percent, a tenth of a percent,” he said. But what bugs him is that nobody’s taken his candidacy seriously enough to focus on the actual matter that has driven him to start running for office as an independent — the corruption in Mexico that he says is going ignored.Stein acknowledges that he’s running mostly to try to compel the media, and specifically the New York Times, to his concerns about Mexico.
