West Caldwell, NJ – The National Association of Realtors® Political Action Committee today announced its endorsement of Mikie Sherrill in the race to represent New Jersey’s 11th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representative.
“In her brief tenure on Capitol Hill, Mikie Sherrill has proven herself as someone who understands the importance of real estate, who will fight to defend the American Dream of homeownership, and who is willing to work across party lines to get things done on this country’s behalf,” said Angela Sicoli, NAR’s Federal Policy Coordinator for New Jersey’s 11th Congressional District. “Within her first several months in Congress, she authored key legislation eliminating SALT caps and continues her work to rectify numerous policies that impact her constituents and homeowners across the country.
“Rep. Sherrill has been recognized as a rising star in the freshman class, and she remains a true champion for Realtors® here in New Jersey and throughout the United States,” Sicoli concluded.
“All New Jerseyans would agree this is a great state to call home. But we need to do more to make New Jersey affordable, starting with lifting the state and local tax deduction cap that has disproportionately affected New Jersey homeowners,” said Representative Mikie Sherrill. “I have heard from Realtors® in my community about how the SALT cap has impacted home values and stifled New Jersey families. That’s why I worked hard to see three bills pass in the House to repeal this harmful cap. I will continue to fight until this legislation is signed into law and I am thankful for the support of RPAC.”
