As of 2pm on February 12, 2020 Facebook has removed our private group. No explanation, just gone.
We are now up and running on a new platform called MeWe. Very similar to Facebook, free to join and easy to find our page, please join us. https://mewe.com/p/riseupoceancounty .
When you follow the link you will need to sign up. Unlike Facebook MeWe requires very little information about yourself, when you have arrived please drop us a message or comment to let us know.
Thank you for your patience during this time, we're almost back where we need and want to be!
Rise Up Ocean County was founded on the simple belief that the continued, unchecked growth in Lakewood is contributing to diminished quality of life in the surrounding communities of Toms River, Jackson, Brick and Howell. Our efforts emphasize strict compliance with local zoning ordinances and we fight our battles in front of Zoning Boards, Planning Boards, in the courts when necessary and of course here on our website as well as on our social media platforms. Furthermore we see eradicating corruption at all levels as a primary goal and as such believe that sunlight is the best disinfectant. We do NOT target people in our efforts, we target bad behavior and the people responsible for it.
We are happy to respond to requests from the media.
All media inquiries should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org, you may expect a reply within 24 hours.
