We must concentrate on the real issues facing our community and come up with solutions that make sense. Our main focus should be the economy, how to create jobs for our citizens, and what we can do to bring corporations back to New Jersey.
At no time in our history have we experienced such turmoil in our economy, government, and educational system. People are tired of the same old blame game that has defined politics for generations. These are serious times and I have a serious agenda for change that reflects our lives as they are actually lived. It is time for new leadership from an average citizen who is not out of touch. Someone that will not only “talk the talk”, but will “walk the walk”.
We have to find solutions to our problems quickly, in order to create the sustainable change that will have a positive impact on every town in our district and throughout New Jersey. We all know that property taxes are a direct result of government spending; creating a smaller, more efficient government structure will help to lessen the strain of property taxes throughout the county.
In order to bring about the change so desperately needed, we must work together. We all will have to sacrifice to help get through these tough times ahead for our district. This is why I am waiving my salary if elected. After all, serving the people should be an honor and a privilege, not a career.
