Paul Ryan Comes to Short Hills

The nominee of the Republican party for vice president visits a Short Hills resident's house.

Paul Ryan, the Republican party vice presidential nominee, is attending a reception at a Millburn-Short Hills residence Saturday afternoon.

The Wisconsin Congressman plans to visits Judy and Bill Greenblatt's home on Stewart Road in Short Hills at 4:30 p.m. Vistors are asked to arrive at 4 p.m. for a security check. 

The Greenblatts run a non-profit organization, Greenblatt Family Charitable Tr, which provides private grants, according to fundraise.com.

The invitation suggests contributions of $1,000 to attend and $5,000 for a photo opportunity. 

Ryan's not the only GOP on the ticket to come to town. In April, The Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney visited Short Hills for a private fundraiser that hedge fund billionaire David Tepper and Clifford Sobe hosted, NJ.com reported.

Recently, Ryan stopped to campaign at Baldwin Wallace University in Berea, Ohio this past Wednesday. He was expected to visit the Cleveland Browns' nearby practice facility in Berea after the rally, according to the Mayfield-Hill Crest Patch.

Before that, on Tuesday, the VP candidate visited Fredericksburg and Lynchburg in Virginia, the Fredericksburg Patch reported.

Actually Stones tix @ the Rock, if you can get them, are $95-, a much better value than Ryan or Streisand!

Saw a guy wearing a Romney Ryan campaign cap and Reagan jumper at Alstede farms in Chester NJ yesterday. He was a family man and seemed like a loving father. From the hopeless campaign talk by Romney Ryan on TV, I wonder how those ideas would appeal to this family guy who otherwise seems no different than me. And he didn't look like a rich guy.

Actually, if you look at 2008, SH, which is part of Millburn township, went for Obama. Not all of us SHillians vote with our pocketbooks and a lot of us recognize the condescending, arrogant, empty suits that are the Romney/Ryan ticket (talking out of both sides of their mouths and insulting our intelligence by not providing us with the details of their so-called 5 point plan; even my 11-year old daughter recognizes that all they give us is empty rhetoric). There are some of us who understand that this country only becomes greater when all of our people have a fair shot at climbing up that ladder ... not just some of us!

Hope that whatever donation the foundation gives him comes with before-tax dollars. Otherwise, this donation to Ryan will, in essence, be made in partnership with the tax money we all pay to make up for spurious not-for-profit donations. There is not for profit and there is political. They can be both, but you can't use deduction-eligible dollars from a foundation to donate to a political campaign. Or can you?

Hi 20yearmiller, It is so nice to hear that the Republican Party, the party of Lincoln, the party that abolished slavery in the United States, is alive and well in Short Hills and supported by dedicated and involved citizens who believe in freedom.
