SOMERSET, NJ- January 5, 2017, Daryl J. Kipnis, Esq., who is seeking the Republican nomination for his candidacy for the New Jersey State Senate in New Jersey's 17th Legislative District, packed the room on Thursday at his Campaign Kickoff Reception event at The Imperia, 1714 Easton Avenue, Somerset, NJ 08873 from 6:30pm to 9:30pm. 

Kipnis spoke to the large crowd and streamed live on Facebook using social media to help spread his word to unite all residents of New Jersey. "The people of New Jersey are a remarkable people – we have a certain resilience, fortitude, and “hearts-on-our-sleeves” way of going about our lives that is apparent no matter where we go – We’re from Jersey!" Kipnis said. 

"There is a ponderous burden that is crushing our spirit that has multiplied by many orders of magnitude as of late. You read about it and hear about it all the time in the news, on social media, and in speaking with your friends, colleagues, and neighbors. You hear that New Jersey now leads the country in people leaving the State."

Kipnis further discussed recent events and reports of businesses leaving the State and or closing outright, the failure of the State to keep its promises to our teachers, police officers, and other public service employees with respect to the pension system, New Jersey having the highest rate of distressed mortgages in the nation at three times the national average, and leading the nation in the number of millennials living at home with their parents.

Kipnis expressed criticism of the Democratic Party majority currently controlling the State Legislature and described the recent passage of the gas tax legislation as a display of indifference to the people of New Jersey. He then gave the Philadelphia "Soda Tax" as an example of what can happen here in New Jersey if the people do not elect leaders who will serve their interests.

Kipnis vowed to become the "conscience of the Legislature" that will "take up both sword and shield against unconscionable taxation and over-regulation" and will "consider the impact of every decision not just on the next election cycle, but on the next generation of New Jerseyans." He set forth his pledge to advance his policy platform, which includes, but is not limited to: Repealing the 2016 gas tax legislation, reviewing State government processes to make improvements to efficiency, user-friendliness, and cost-effectiveness, investigating and creating opportunities to provide long-overdue property tax relief to New Jersey homeowners, drawing upon his experience as an attorney to take an active role in the vetting of State judicial appointments to ensure that skilled practitioners that are also principled Constitutionalists will join the Bench, working to provide our outstanding men and women of law enforcement with the resources they need to keep our communities safe, as well as end the “Narrative” against them and help them solidify excellent relationships with the communities they are sworn to serve, working to achieve new levels of excellence in ALL forms of education so that parents will be able to choose with great confidence the best course for their children, opening the lines of communication with major business entities to find out exactly what it would take to get them to invest or expand their existing investments in the Garden State and create jobs for our people, advancing legislation to eliminate the burdens on first-time business owners or those who wish to become franchisees of a franchise new to New Jersey, and honoring our State's commitments to our teachers, police officers, and other public service employees to fund and provide cost of living increases to the pension system. 

Beyond his policies, Kipnis proclaimed his commitment to exceed any and all expectations of the people of 17th Legislative District of what their State Senator could and should be. He pledged to deliver a level of transparency and accessibility "unparalleled by any of his predecessors," by keeping his constituents informed via social media and otherwise of issues before the Legislature coming up for a vote, and most importantly, how he intends to vote in any given instance, and the reasons why, while simultaneously giving constituents the opportunity to inform his position on any given issue. He pledged not just to be reactive, but also, proactive. He stated "these are things which I believe people are owed as of right from their State Senator, and unfortunately, the people of Franklin, Milltown, New Brunswick, North Brunswick, and Piscataway simply aren’t getting right now."

As the crowd cheered, Kipnis told everyone, "It’s all about RESPECT – to which EVERYONE is entitled - no matter what their views are, where they live, or how they voted in any previous election of any kind. I know what it is to raise a family here, and I want everyone to be able to afford to keep their kids under their roof, and eventually, for their kids to afford to move out and start families of their own. It is from the perspective of a rank-and-file citizen, husband and father that I will approach my duties as a State Senator."

Kipnis thanked everyone for their support and encouraged people to contact him on any matter, "I don’t want to be thought of or remembered as a politician, but rather, a statesman. That is the standard to which I will hold myself, and the only way I know how to be."

As Kipnis continues his campaign in the 17th Legislative District, there will be a strong social media presence. The Kipnis For State Senate page can be followed on Facebook where Daryl Kipnis will continues to post and use Facebook Live to interact with all residents. Kipnis is making his way through the neighborhoods on weekends, knocking on doors to meet residents in Franklin, North Brunswick, Milltown, Piscataway, and New Brunswick to hear any issues concerning residents and local businesses. If anyone sends their address to Kipnis on Facebook, he will happily visit them to talk about their concerns. Kipnis is always willing to discuss the future of New Jersey with anyone via phone.
