We were overwhelmed by the support of colleagues, family, and friends last night at Dawn's fundraiser. Special thanks to Senator Steven Oroho and Assemblyman Hal Wirths for your kind words, to all members of the Host Committee and generous sponsors, and to all who came from near and far to rally around our Hometown Conservative Team. We appreciate you, and our hearts are full. Time to take our fight for northwest New Jersey to Trenton.
Mike Speaks in Vernon
Tonight Mayor Mike Inganamort spoke to the Vernon Republican Club about why Parker Space, Dawn Fantasia, and he are running to represent New Jersey’s 24th District. Great conversation on how to fight the State’s out of control mandates… and fun to relive shared memories of Vernon over the years. Thank you, Jill, Bunny, Denise, and Vera!
Thank you, volunteers!
Amazing night at the Frankford Republican Club’s Candidates Night. Those attending heard why Parker Space, Dawn Fantasia, Mike Inganamort & Gary Chiusano are running together on the same conservative values. Thank you for organizing, John Dalmas! And for hosting, Branchville Fire Department!
Full House in Hardyston
Full house at the Hardyston Republican Club tonight, where the group hosted Senator Steven Oroho and Assemblyman Parker Space. Dawn also was afforded the opportunity to share additional information regarding our campaign for LD24. Thank you to Ellis Marples, local elected officials, and all members. A great group of people with common, conservative values. We appreciate you!
Parker & Mike Speak in Hopatcong
Tonight Parker and Mike gave a campaign update to the Hopatcong Republican Club and reiterated our team’s priorities:
-Repeal the radical 'woke' school curriculum and protect our children
-Fight for election integrity by mandating Voter ID at the polls
-End the liberal Sanctuary State policies that attract illegal immigrants to New Jersey
-Defend our 2A rights and vote to protect the lives of unborn babies
-Oppose wasteful spending and get our fair share from Trenton
-Crack down on crime and illegal drugs, and stand with our police
There was only one problem: the twenty yard signs we brought weren’t enough!
The New Jersey Outdoor Alliance (NJOA) has endorsed Parker Space for Senate, and Dawn Fantasia and Mike Inganamort for Assembly in this year’s GOP Primary Election.
NJOA represents the 1.2 million New Jersey sportsmen and sportswomen by supporting outdoor-minded legislation and legislators who support hunting, fishing, trapping and the conservation of our natural resources in New Jersey.
"Assemblyman Parker Space has been a leader on our issues from Day One, and we are proud to endorse him for State Senate, as well as his team for State Assembly, Sussex County Commissioner Dawn Fantasia and Chester Township Mayor Mike Inganamort,” said John Rogalo, NJOA President and Sussex County resident. “The Space, Fantasia and Inganamort team have impressed us with their steadfast commitment – in word and deed – to conservation and to the overall health of our natural resources. Moreover, they are all active outdoors people who truly care about our mission and will promote it in Trenton.”
Rogalo also noted that the Space-Fantasia-Inganamort team’s commitment to sound bear management, including a bear hunt, and their strong support for law-abiding gun owners, were both critical to earning NJOA’s support.
“Outdoor activities like hunting, fishing, and trapping are all part of growing up in Sussex County and the northwest corner of the state,” said Fantasia. “Our unique and special way of life depends on preserving these traditions and taking wildlife management seriously. To earn the NJOA’s support as the legislative ticket that they believe is best suited to lead this fight in Trenton, is an honor and privilege I take very seriously.”
Fantasia is a freshwater and saltwater sportswoman who bow fishes, crabs and clams.
"Having grown up hunting in Sussex County and beyond, it means a lot to earn the support of fellow hunters," said Inganamort, who previously served at the U.S. Department of the Interior during the Bush Administration. "I know firsthand that hunting is not only a proud tradition and economic boon for northwest New Jersey, but also an effective and ethical way to manage imbalanced wildlife populations, especially white-tailed deer and black bear."
As the Assembly Republican Co-Chairman of the New Jersey Angling, Hunting, and Conservation Caucus, a lifelong hunter who preaches responsible gun ownership and promotes sound wildlife policies through educational programs at his zoo, Parker Space is widely seen as the conservative conscience of the legislature on outdoor issues.
“As a life member of the National Rifle Association, member of the Assembly Agriculture Committee, and member of the NJ Farm Bureau, the sanctity of the 2nd Amendment and the critical importance of conservation are true passions of mine,” said Space, who is unopposed in the GOP Primary Election. “In making my decision to run with Dawn and Mike, I knew we were all aligned on these critical issues and I am confident they will take the reins from Hal Wirths and me in the State Assembly and be leaders on these issues in the lower house.”
Space, along with his former running mates Steve Oroho and Hal Wirths – who have heartily endorsed the Space-Fantasia-Inganamort ticket – championed legislation to clarify that the Fish and Game Council have the sole authority to regulate freshwater fishing, hunting, and trapping (S1685 and A114); provide for no net loss of DEP lands for fishing, hunting, and trapping purposes (S1686 and A110); authorizing Sunday firearm and bow hunting for deer on certain lands (S3582 and A5203); and a constitutional amendment ensuring the rights of New Jersey residents to fish and hunt (SCR72 and ACR15).
The Space-Fantasia-Inganamort team were against Governor Murphy’s attempt to indefinitely close state lands such as parks, forests, and wildlife management areas, shooting ranges, and prevent firearm sales during the early days of the pandemic and oppose all of Governor Murphy’s new gun control laws.
Earlier this month, Chester Township and 27 other municipalities were on the receiving end of a notice of violation from the New Jersey Attorney General's office for an outdated website link that took visitors to a marriage application form that included the genders "male" and "female". The reason for the complaint? The State of New Jersey now uses a form that includes the "non-binary" gender option.
In swooped New Jersey's Attorney General with some serious grandstanding and outrageous threats of monetary fines and absurd hoops for Chester Township to jump through, including diversity training for employees and a non-discrimination policy.
In response to the notice of violation, Mayor Inganamort advised the State that they are engaging in performative theater and the matter was closed.
Inganamort told the Observer-Tribune, "it is the epitome of grandstanding [...] It’s unproductive particularly in light of the 22 percent increase they are foisting upon us for our health premiums and the 19 percent increase in pension costs. I think to contemplate an additional monetary penalty to the township for an outdated website link is egregious.’’
Inganamort also advised residents that Chester Township would once again decline to fly any flags other than the American flag and New Jersey flag.
"The American flag flies for everyone," Inganamort stated at the meeting.

The weaponization of the Soros-backed Manhattan DA's office against President Trump is an outrageous abuse of power. Make no mistake, this isn't just an attack on President Trump, it's an attack on all Americans who deserve a system of justice that is equal, free, and fair. This unprecedented political persecution will backfire.
