LaZare: Trump Tax Worst Thing for District 21

For District 21, Trump's tax proposal is giving residents twenty thousand reasons to vote Democratic next month.

Trump's tax bill wants to eliminate the State and Local Tax (SALT) deduction on Federal taxes. Of all the voting districts in the country, ours will be among the worst hit as residents here on average get $20,000 a year in deductions directly from SALT.

This tax proposal goes beyond party lines. It's a direct assault on the state of New Jersey, voters, the local economy, and home values. We need to send a message to Trump and the Republican Party that this is unacceptable. November 7th will be the first opportunity voters have to tell Trump and Republicans who aren't standing up to him that this calculated attack on our state will not stand.

Our district went to Clinton and rejected Trump in November by 10 points. Snugly ensconced in New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District, the election on November 7th could be a bellwether for things to come in 2018.

I’m ready to fight for New Jersey families in Trenton, opposing such delusional policies every opportunity possible.

Please, vote Democratic on November 7th so that we can #TakeBackOurDemocracy from this insanity.

Jill LaZare is running for New Jersey Senate to represent District 21. A lifelong resident of New Jersey, she was born and raised down the shore. She, her husband, and children have called Union County home for nearly 20 years. Jill attended the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston for piano and studied abroad in Vienna. She received her law degree from Rutgers University, and currently practices in Summit. 

Jill is a passionate and independent-minded lifelong Democrat. In January, Jill was among the thousands of women who gathered in New York City to protest the Trump Administration, and remains a vocal opponent of the disastrous Trump agenda today.

More Traffic, No Solution – Letter to Governor Phil Murphy

July 17, 2018

Dear Governor Phil Murphy,

In fact, on Wednesday, September 29, 1976, the local newspaper ran an article with a photo showing my mother and her protest placard. The memory of ...
