I thought it was time that New Jersey has its own group; while I love the people I've met from New York City kossacks and PhillyKos, New Jersey is so much more than just a bridge between the two locations. New Jersey has the open farmland in the South, mountains in the North and West, and of course our wonderful shore on our East coast, and of course our own wonderful brand of Jersey politics! It may be a small state, but there's a lot packed into it.
We also know how important local connections and grassroots organizing are, and having our own state group makes sense on that level. Besides, we need more Jersey meetups! :-D
So, while I thank Philly Kos & New York City kossacks for hosting us NJ folks, New Jersey Kossacks is now open for business! Send me a kosmail to join & I'll try to figure out how adding people to a group works. :-)
Edit - I figured out how to invite people, so you can just drop a note in the comments if you want an invite.
