Anna C. Little, 6th District Congressional Candidate, June 5th – NJ Primary Election Day

HIGHLANDS, NJ – June 5th is an important day for New Jersey Republicans. This primary election is one that will determine if New Jersey will move ahead in promoting transparency in government.

The citizens and voters in New Jersey – and across the United States — are tired of the exaggerated claims and negative attacks made in blogs and online postings against many candidates.

The citizens and voters are sick of political party monopoly control in selecting elected officials. The rise of the grassroots Tea Parties is based on educating voters and encouraging open, public meetings, where political candidates and elected officials must interact with the citizens and voters they are supposed to represent.

The Tea Parties are not beholden to any single political party, nor does it matter what political party their members are aligned with. The Tea Parties support candidates who best represent their views and promote open government.

The unsubstantiated attacks made against Herman Cain, a Tea Party favorite for President, earlier this year were nothing more than an orchestrated attack to remove a candidate who many people believed in supporting and voting for. The recent smears of the Jersey Shore Tea Party and Bayshore Tea Party Group are another example of how political insiders are trying to blind the voters and discourage them from having independent views and thoughts.

Likewise, Anna Little is being attacked merely for standing behind her convictions and daring to challenge the Monmouth County system, where the political party bosses and bloggers scheme to predetermine who will be the winning candidate. Three of the exaggerated and outright false attacks being made on Anna’s good record include:

1. The recent lawsuit detailed by the opponent in his exaggerated press release and by various blog entries is merely an example of a frivolous lawsuit against a small business owner. Anna’s personal experience in dealing with politically motivated attacks and lawsuits make her a strong proponent of Tort Reform, which would limit liability from frivolous lawsuits and allow small businesses to operate.

Tort Reform will also allow the courts to focus on prosecuting and punishing repeat violators. We all know that there are too many frivolous lawsuits that plague New Jersey, backlog the court system, and limit small businesses. A frivolous lawsuit is every small business owner’s greatest fear, where the legal defense fees could exceed their income. There are also those who file lawsuits, in the hope that the innocent business owner will settle for a smaller cash amount, rather than pay potentially larger legal fees in a court case.

In Anna’s situation, the person who filed suit against her was not even her client. Voters making a simple search of public records will uncover the truth of the case.

2. Another of the opponent’s exaggerated claims is that increased user-only fees created financial hardships for the residents of Highlands. With such important national issues as energy independence and health care, why does her opponent believe that raising the vital statistics service fee to $15 in the borough of Highlands is such a crisis, when Edison Township and Middletown both charge $25 for similar service?  

Once again, modern technology allows voters to perform their own research, since municipal governments publish their fee and penalty schedules online. Residents are able to compare their town’s fees with other towns to determine what is reasonable and fair; rather than rely on deceptive tactics, like those used by the producer of the Bowling for Columbine “documentary.”

As Mayor of the Borough of Highlands, Anna Little has been attacked as being disloyal to the Republican Party for negotiating a common-sense agreement with the police department and Democrats on the Highlands Borough Council. This practical solution reduced the police budget while retaining dedicated police officers while not reducing law enforcement services to the town. This is an example of Anna’s ability to put political party lines aside in order to ensure that her constituents receive the affordable services they elected her to provide.

To overturn the liberal agenda that threatens to weaken our Constitution, we need candidates who can put partisan political party bickering aside, so that they can make decisions that serve and protect the communities they have been elected to represent.

3. Anna’s opponent has proposed to have a debate where only the press — and not the general public — is allowed to attend. Closed-door sessions like these deny the voters their right to receive unedited information directly from their elected officials/candidates, in person. We all recall how Nancy Pelosi and Frank Pallone used closed-door sessions to pass the deplorable and flawed PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) health care bill.

Similarly, in Monmouth County, the Town Committee Chairs and Regular Republicans were denied their right and opportunity to nominate and vote for the candidate of their choice. A mere handful of political insiders made a closed-door decision to select a candidate for the party line, with no regard to their public service, professional experience, or prior voting record. This is a similar process used by Democrat Party bosses across NJ, where candidates must swear fealty to the party boss to be elected.

In comparison, Middlesex County Republicans have an open convention that allows Republican voters and all committee members to nominate their choice of candidate. At the Middlesex County Screening Committee meeting in March 2012, the municipal committee chairs overwhelmingly voted in favor of nominating Anna Little 25 to 3. At the Middlesex County Republican Convention later that month, the delegates reinforced this decision, with Anna receiving 74% of the vote.

Since her last run for Congress, Anna Little has volunteered her time and money to travel to Washington, DC, to work with and support Conservative think tank projects. She took these actions to help ensure that Nancy Pelosi does not regain a majority in the House, that Harry Reid is replaced in the Senate, and that a new President is elected in 2012.

Frank Pallone understands all this and is hoping that Anna Little will not be his Republican challenger in 2012. If the Republican Party and Tea Party stand united, the liberal agenda can – and will — be stopped. There are simply too many hardcore Democrat voters in NJ for any single conservative group to overcome alone.

Your vote for Anna Little on June 5th will send a message to Washington, DC: that New Jersey will no longer tolerate closed-door sessions; that we want an end to the political patronage system used by political party bosses like former Democrat Party County Chairmen Sheriff Joe Spicuzzo and Senator John Lynch; that voters will no longer tolerate exaggerated and outright false claims in negative campaigns ads; and that candidates must have previously voted in the District they reside in and wish to represent.

A high turnout of voters in this year’s Republican Primary will show the nation, the President, and the Senate and House leaders that New Jersey will not meekly stand by and allow our rights and freedoms to be trampled on any longer. Anna Little is the best candidate to end the corruption and needless lawsuits that are hindering our nation.

Please take a stand and vote for Anna Little for US Congressional District 6 (Column E in Middlesex County / Column 5 in Monmouth County) this coming Tuesday, June 5th.

    There is just SO SO SO SO much wrong with this statement! By all the information coming out, Little thinks nothing of backlogging the court system. She has cases going for 10-11 years!

    Anna stands on conviction?
    Congress, Senate, Congress. Why? She made a back room deal with Sam T in Middlesex to get on the ballot. Almost lost all her pro-life endorsements in 2010 after comments on NJN. (Also see above) Cost the voters of highlands thousands by voting with Democrats, and by having a NO SHOW Mayors job.

    Traveled to DC to work for Conservative Causes?
    You mean to raise money for her campaigns. Not that she got that much, but then again she canceled her Congressional account and now there is missing money. (Also goes with above)

    Voters denied the right to pick a Candidate?
    I guess Anna doesn’t agree with the Electoral College either. The voters voted for the Committee People and Elected Officials that in turn voted to keep her off the line.
    If anything the problem is the Middlesex Convention. They let anyone that wants vote. Let’s ponder, if anyone can register and vote at the Convention, what is the point of even having a Republican Committee anyway? It just doesn’t make sense.

    Remember, Anna went to school for acting and she does a great job. She talks the talk, but doesn’t walk the walk. Look at her record. She is the worst possible candidate.

    No one but Anna Little could have lost to Frank Pallone, the Author of Obama-care, in a Republican wave year.

  2. John McClott said at 7:19 pm on June 1st, 2012:

    If they elected garbage collectors Anna Little wouldn’t be fit for the job. Maybe she can work on a farm spreading manure because she is full of sh**.

    Btw Little.. You did raise my taxes when you were the mayor of Highlands. Shame… Shame on you.

  3. GoErnesto said at 7:26 pm on June 1st, 2012:

    Anna Little’s signs say to “vote November 2.” So on Novemebr 2, I will vote for Little, but on Tuesday, I AM VOTING ERNESTO!

  4. @youhavegottobekiddin' said at 9:42 pm on June 1st, 2012:

    Kelly is that you??

    You guys are sooo used to lying… it is becoming a habit. You know that story about the boy who cry’s wolf… well your credibility is going down the toilet.

    Those two repubs in Highlands are both democrats, they voted with the democrates, made democrate appointments. O’Neil even betrayed Art when he ran.

    GO!! Anna!!! GO!!

  5. Thin skinned supporters said at 6:21 am on June 2nd, 2012:

    I really find it amusing sitting back reading a lot of these comments. This is simply what elections are all about. Voters of the 6th District have a right to know everything about the people who are asking for their vote. Anna was ignored in the primary 2 years ago (which is how she got in) and ignored in the general election, because (and this is probably the only time I will agree with Frank Pallone) she was a joke. The make up of the old 6 could have easily been won if the candidate running wasn’t an opportunist.

    She was never fully vetted. Now that she is a seasoned, career politician, she is now being held to task and all you hear from her Tea Party supporters is that the Cullari campaogn is “making stuff up”. The fact of the matter is, look at what a mess Highlands is in. Anna didn’t create it, but she sure as hell didn’t help it either!

    The Bayshore Tea Party has once again proved that they do not vet candidates well at all. They just want to “make a statement” that they don’t support the candidate with “the line” because God forbid the Tea Party and the “establishment” endorsed the same people.

    As a political junkie like myself, I find what’s going on here locally much more entertaining than watching the Presidential Race right now. Thank you Bayshore Tea Party for the laughs!!!

  6. But she had no problem.......... said at 6:38 am on June 2nd, 2012:

    going to the Monmouth County Gala with her little basket handing out her 2010 palm cards, pencils, and pins? This for starters is the longest press release ever. I stopped reading after the 4th paragraph. But what I found interesting is what she said about Herman Cain.

    Now say what you want about Herman Cain, he was simply a candidate running for President who got vetted and failed the vetting test. He had good ideas no doubt, but he was not President material. But what I found very interesting is that she sounds like a huge supporter of him around this time http://www.moremonmouthmusings.net/2011/09/02/little-positioning-herself-to-join-perry-campaign/

    She’s an opportunist! Plain as simple!

  7. Vote for Bennett, said at 11:09 am on June 2nd, 2012:

    and one of these contentious issues may be laid to rest: he says at the group-vettings, and in writing, that he will return to the convention method of candidate- selection by the party voters..this has to be a step in the right direction, look at what is going on in this Dist.6 Primary, this year!… the more I learn about the guy, and see how he’s managed to coalesce a formerly- antagonistic bunch of party leaders and supporters behind him, in just a couple of weeks, to me bodes very well-for the process, and for all those who want “in,” and want a voice and a chance to be heard!!.. at the risk of unleashing a self-righteous tirade from his opponents, I honestly believe John will be the right leader for this point in time: hey, he has said he won’t hang on forever, as did a couple of chairs in the past: many people around today simply need more good and bad political experiences under their belts, before taking over!..

  8. Bob English said at 12:45 pm on June 2nd, 2012:

    The attacks agains Herman Cain were very substantiated which is the reason why he dropped out. Republican voters apparently felt the same which is why his support after being the flovor of the week dropped like a rock.

  9. @Vote For Bennett said at 10:19 pm on June 2nd, 2012:

    So, you want to continue with the “Good Old Boys” Network & reward the kind of baggage that Bennett has?

    Christine will continue to build our grass roots organization and turn out huge vote totals for Monmouth County, like she did for Chris Christie.

  10. not a clue said at 4:43 am on June 3rd, 2012:

    To rational human gops….
    that letter was batshit crazy

    Last time her treasurer stabbed someone with a pen, but her computer guy, sloth, edited it to look like she was assaulted.

    This year the veterans wrote her an open letter to not disrespect memorial day parades like last time

    Her gang thinks public policy is sandwiching other peoples signs….

    Her plastic joker smile doesnt fool anyone who knows her (which is why she couldnt win her own town)

    Please dont waste your money or time on anna litter… this is a failed money making scheme – running for office

  11. @@youvegot to bekidding said at 12:59 pm on June 4th, 2012:

    Of course that is Kelly. She has the moral fiber of a leper. Anyone who really KNOWS her (Ernesto doesnt as he obviously didnt do a background check) realizes this about her. Mr Cullari has done himself a real diservice.
