    Here is the article on the slogan and the latest episode on what I like to call Slogangate ...

    N.J. cans new slogan after learning it’s used
    ASSOCIATED PRESS

    New Jersey officials said the new state slogan — ‘‘Come See for Yourself’’ — would highlight the Garden State’s true beauty.

    However, it turns out that at least one other state already had the same idea.
    State tourism officials say they have canned the slogan after it was unable to pass legal muster because some states, including West Virginia, have used it in the past.

    "‘We are proceeding without the slogan. We will revisit the next steps at the end of the year,’’ Karen Wolfe, a spokeswoman for the state Commerce, Economic Growth and Tourism Commission, told the Press of Atlantic City.

    Former Gov. Richard J. Codey unveiled the slogan with great fanfare at a January news conference, just days before he left office.

    Codey, who remains state Senate president, said at the time that the state’s catch phrase ‘‘should hint at our true beauty.’’

    The slogan was the top choice among 11,227 telephone and online votes cast by residents for five final entrees in a statewide contest.

    But at an annual tourism conference in Cape May County more than a week ago, the slogan was absent from all state promotional materials. The slogan is also incognito in this year’s tourism television commercials, featuring a song by rocker Jon Bon Jovi, a Sayreville native.

    Tourism officials say West Virginia already used phrase in some previous promotions, but now uses ‘‘West Virginia: Wild and Wonderful.’’
    New Jersey is the only state honored by two resorts at Walt Disney World. The Beach Club Resort, modeled after Historic Cape May and The Boardwalk Resort, after Atlantic City. If the Jersey Shore is good enough for Walt Disney to recreate, isn't the REAL Jersey Shore even better for you and your family?

    Hi Dave, I know you were and I am aware that the state has shut down but that does not mean it is not a beautiful state. Hopefully this situation is only temporary. Everyones nerves are on edge. with good reason. Marianita

    Hi Jersey Warren, That is absolutely awesome. It is the best I have seen yet. It pretty well sums it up and gives people an idea of what New Jersey is like. Marianita

    Default Thanks!

    Thanks, Marianita! I appreciate your compliment. Though I write for a living, slogan writing is an art all it's own. I used to work with a man who was an ad copywriter at a New Orleans ad agency years ago and I wish I could think them up like he did. I can come up with something after lots and lots of thought, but he'd spout slogans and clever lines off the top of his head as easy as breathing.

    You are so very welcome Jersey Warren. I should have figured you write for living. It is funny about these things. Sometimes you have to think and think. It is like my writing poetry. Strangely I write the best after midnight. lol. At any rate no one is going to come up with anything better then your slogan so it may as well be used. That guy in New Orleans probably was used to coming up with slogans. I too have to give these things plenty of thought. Take care. Marianita
