[img align=left][/img] [size=large][color=0000FF]THE 5TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT: AN AMERICAN LANDSCAPE[/color][/size] The 5th Congressional District epitomizes the distinctiveness of the State of New Jersey and it is recognized as one of the most desirable places in the country to work and raise a family. In the east, from Bergen to Passaic counties it is made up of thriving cities and vigorous suburban communities. In the west, it is comprised of the beautiful terrain of the Appalachian Mountains and the fertile farmland that helps give New Jersey its recognition as the Garden State. From the northeast to the southwest, the 5th District is characterized by the majestic highlands region, stretching from New Milford, Mahwah and Newton across portions of Warren, Sussex and Bergen counties to Phillipsburg. The 5th District supplies much of the state with its water supply and boasts pristine lakes, ponds, streams, reservoirs and forestland that are home to a variety of wildlife and many endangered species. Visiting this natural treasure and taking advantage of the recreational activities and natural beauty is an exciting and rejuvenating experience. It is the heart of the people who reside in its borders and a favored destination to tens of thousands of people per year. From east to west, the dynamic 5th District is a link to New Jersey's rich past of small, strong municipalities but it is also a window to the future through its vital community development and its critical transportation links. Our healthy communities help foster the regions prosperity and attract professionals who work in the economically viable metropolitan area. Our nation's business leaders, your neighbors and our friends commute from the 5th District to corporations and businesses throughout New York and New Jersey to make a living for our families and ensure economic vitality throughout the region. As a constituency, we are all concerned with sustaining a way of life that will support the stable democratic ideals which founded this country and we demand our leaders to provide an excellent education for our children, exemplary family values, homeland security, fiscal responsibility and protection for our environment.
