Torricelli blogs about GSPT, making perfection the enemy of good
Former NJ Sen. Bob Torricelli blogs on PolitickerNJ.com about the present compromise legislation to put a $600 million, three year bond to replenish the Garden State Preservation Trust, and NJ Historic Trust, on the November ballot.
“Every legislative action involves compromise. Effective leadership means doing the best that you can to get the best result. Freshman legislators often make the mistake of demanding too much and being left out of the final product. By wanting perfection, they become the enemy of the good and the final result can be failure.”
“It’s time for everybody to unite behind Sen. Bob Smith and (Keep it Green). Let’s get voter approval for this new open space bond issue and pledge ourselves to create a permanent funding source when the recession ends. Good people shouldn’t be divided in fighting for a good cause.”
