I’m runnning for NJ State Assembly in District 21, as a first-time candate. One of the reasons I decided to run was to do something about New Jersey’s rising cost of living. We must reduce residents’ financial burden.

I’d like the Garden State to be a place where my children can afford to one day settle down and raise their own families. But to accomplish that, we’d need solutions. We need to fully fund our school formula, which is something Governor Chris Christie has not done for eight years now. New Jersey’s property taxes reflect that the burden is on us to fund education town by town while following state mandates. But that doesn’t make sense.

We also need to consolidate services. One of the main reasons New Jersey’s cost of living is so high is that we don’t rely more on countywide systems. It’s wasteful, for example, for each municipality to own a street sweeping machine that costs more than a half million dollars, when it’s only used a couple of days each week. We also need to ensure that tax burdens are fairly shared. Property owners with non-conforming exemptions should not pay nonprofit rates for businesses. And farm-assessment rates should be for those who actually own a farm, not for investors owning hundreds of foreclosed properties.

Republicans campaign for this election on a vague promise they’ll make New Jersey “affordable,” while offering no explanations of how. Well-meaning voters may think my opponents have residents’ best interest at heart, but with no explanation, there’s no evidence for that belief.
