We are proud to run on a solid conservative platform and utilize our experience and accomplishments in the service of the residents of Morris County. Our platform includes-

Fiscal Responsibility- We will hold the line on county property taxes, as we achieved three years of zero county tax and reduced debt by over $50 million. 
Focus government on what counts- Preserve our parks and open spaces and invest in road and bridge repair.
Reform Government- We will enact a complete gift ban for Freeholders, and pledge not to take taxpayer funded health benefits.

We will also stand up to liberal Governor Phil Murphy and oppose his reckless plan to make New Jersey a Sanctuary State for criminal illegal immigrants. As Sheriff Jim Gannon has stated, “Deb, John, and Stephen all stand with me in opposing reckless Sanctuary City and State policies that would make our communities less safe. They understand that we can never put political correctness above public safety.”
