Default NJ State slogan

The New Jersey State government has finally given up the ghost trying to convince tourists that we live in a 'Garden' and went to the people for a new slogan, amongst some of the less serious suggestions were:

New Jersey: It Always Smells Like This

New Jersey: Come Glow With Us

Bada Bing! Choose New Jersey

New Jersey: You Got a Problem With That?

NJ: How You Doin’?!

Most of Our Elected Officials Have Not Been Indicted.



Quote:The program began last month after Codey rejected a consultant’s recommendation — "New Jersey: We’ll Win You Over" — as too negative. That slogan, developed as part of a $260,000 contract by global image consultants Lippincott Mercer, was shelved a day before it was to be unveiled.

They finally went with "New Jersey- come see for yourself"

although "New Jersey-don't bother" would have been more appropriate.

I think NJ is a lovely state.... now I don't have to live there anymore

Great slogans though, they could all work. I personally call it the armpit of the US And I know there are worse places to live, but I'm glad I am where I am, for now at least.
