BEDMINSTER, NJ – Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli (R-16th) has signed on as a primary sponsor of a resolution seeking reimbursements for President Donald Trump’s frequent visits to New Jersey and his estate and golf club in Bedminster.

Ciattarelli's resolution urges the federal government to compensate municipalities, counties and the state for police overtime and administrative assistance each time the president arrives in the state.

“Security in the current environment is incredibly complicated and costly,” said Ciattarelli. “The federal government is ultimately responsible for safeguarding the president and the first family, and we’re urging Washington to assist New Jersey towns and counties with the financial responsibility.”

The bipartisan resolution notes that for the president’s visit to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster in November, the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office spent almost $18,000 for 208 hours of overtime. More than 100 hours of overtime for the Bedminster Police cost close to $4,000.

Trump returned to the golf club for a one-day visit last weekend and is expected to return to New Jersey several times during the summer months.

Uneducated Educators Interfere with Students’ Choice

To the editor:

I commend high school students around Hunterdon County for planning 17-minute walk-outs on March 14 in support of the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida.
