Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick (R-21) said he wants to know when Democrats will address the most important issues facing New Jersey. “New Jerseyans cannot possibly believe the Democrats’ agenda are New Jersey’s highest priorities,” said Bramnick. “The legislature didn’t have a voting session in six months. And when we returned the Democrats posted bills giving criminals voting rights and financial aid, driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants, and make independent contracts jobless.”
Bramnick said he and fellow Republicans have continually advocated for addressing the top concerns in New Jersey, such as lowering property taxes, improving New Jersey’s business environment, stopping high-density housing mandates, and making the state affordable.
“The question is whether Democrats in Trenton are addressing the most important issues,” said Bramnick. “I don’t think they are, and the majority of New Jersey doesn’t either.”
A Monmouth University poll found most respondents name property taxes as the most important issue facing New Jersey, along with income taxes, taxes and the cost of living in general. An NJBIA-Rutgers poll had similar results, with approximately 80 percent of respondents saying they pay more in taxes than they get in return, and listing property taxes as the main problem. The same amount of people believe the government is not doing enough to solve that problem; their biggest concern.
