Over the past few months we’ve been pushing hard to get out our message out about holding down taxes, expanding opportunities for our kids and making South Plainfield more beautiful.
We realize that during an election campaign, candidates will make all sorts of claims, and it’s difficult to cut through the rhetoric and get to the facts. Keeping that in mind, we thought we’d point to some independent reports that tell our story much better than we ever could.
• South Plainfield is More Affordable – Municipal taxes are up less than 1% over the last ten years and Sewer fees have been remained flat for seven years. This is why, in 2017, NJ.com named South Plainfield as one of the best tax bargains in the state!
• South Plainfield is Financially Stronger –When S&P global affirmed the borough’s “AA” rating they pointed to the borough’s “Strong management, strong budgetary performance and a very strong economy” when describing our finances. In addition, South Plainfield continues to have one of the lowest debt ratios in the County.
We want to have the opportunity to work with Mayor Anesh and continue getting these types of results. The results make our town a better place for you to live and raise your family. The two of us chose to raise our families in South Plainfield because of its affordability and small-town atmosphere. Because of this, we want to help maintain that atmosphere and make it even better.
We hope you will agree that, under Mayor Anesh, South Plainfield is heading in the right direction. If you do, we ask for your support on November 5th.
