Pennacchio & Webber on Financial State of the States Report
MONTVILLE — Senator Joe Pennacchio and Assemblyman Jay Webber, running mates in the campaign for District 26 State legislative seats in the November 7th general election, today responded to the just-released annual report Financial State of the States from the nonpartisan think tank Truth in Accounting.  The report shows that New Jersey has the worst taxpayer burden of all the states in the entire nation, receiving an F grade.  Despite this worst-in-the-nation tax burden, New Jersey Democrats have announced plans to make the State’s problems worse by hiking taxes more than $1.3 billion next year to fund even more new spending programs.

Senator Pennacchio stated, “The State’s average property tax bill stands at $8,549. Pledging higher taxes is unconscionable and an insult to the families we serve. Democrats have controlled the legislature for 16 years – a child in kindergarten then is now a college graduate. It’s time for action. Our constituents deserve to be represented by true fiscal conservatives who will stop the reckless spending of their hard-earned taxpayer dollars. ”

Assemblyman Webber stated, “Not one of my constituents has contacted me to complain that New Jersey’s taxes are too low.  They tell me the opposite, and what everyone knows – our taxes are too high.  That’s the fundamental issue in the campaign this year – if you think New Jersey needs higher taxes and more government spending, vote Democrat.  If you think we need to lower taxes and lower spending, vote Pennacchio and Webber.”

Senator Pennacchio and Assemblyman Webber concluded, “We will continue to partner together to represent the values of our constituents in this campaign and beyond.  That includes fighting against attempts to pile more taxes on the backs of the most overtaxed people in the nation.”

Their pro-taxpayer public records have earned Senator Pennacchio and Assemblyman Webber repeated recognition.  Senator Pennacchio has earned the Taxpayer Champion award from the New Jersey Taxpayer Alliance, and Assemblyman Webber has earned the Taxpayer Hero award from Americans for Prosperity-NJ.  Both have earned the Award for Conservative Excellence from the American Conservative Union.
