As elected officials, our main concerns center around the wellbeing of our constituents. Over the past four years, Congressman Josh Gottheimer has continually shown his capacity to care for and support Fair Lawn’s residents even as he effects change on a national level. Among many other things, Congressman Gottheimer has protected our seniors, advanced vital gun violence prevention legislation for the safety of our children, and supported our veterans and first responders.
We know our senior constituents worry about being able to continue their way of life in retirement if they stay in Fair Lawn. New Jersey has some of the highest property taxes in the country, making it very difficult for seniors to thrive in retirement. In early 2020, Congressman Gottheimer came to Fair Lawn to introduce a bipartisan bill that would lower taxes for seniors and help them better save for retirement.
Many of our constituents, but particularly those with children, have expressed their concerns about gun violence in America. Through his work demanding that Congress pass legislation to protect the schoolchildren of Fair Lawn and all of Bergen County from the perils of gun violence Congressman Gottheimer has earned the endorsement of EveryTown for Gun Safety.
A big part of our work as elected officials has been addressing our constituents' concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic we are all living through. Since day one of the COVID-19 pandemic, Josh has been fighting to get our district vital supplies and relief, and to support our first responders, essential workers, small business owners and our most vulnerable populations.
As voters, we know that Josh Gottheimer will continue to place the residents of northern New Jersey first when considering national policy for the entirety of his time in Congress.
