The Jaffe Briefing - September 18, 2020

BEDMINSTER – In this Trump era, the news is numbing. The President’s ethical lapses are met with seething outrage on one side, and dismissive shrugs on the other.  Still, reporters are trying to educate the masses, for those who still read blurbs with more than 280 characters. NJ.com, for example, is now reporting that Trump’s luxury properties have charged U.S. taxpayers ...

The Jaffe Briefing - September 17, 2020

NEW BRUNSWICK - OK, call us excited. Rutgers football is back! Yet we don't know the fall schedule, we don't know if any fans will be able to go to the “away” games, we don't know how, if and when the coronavirus will affect the season. Heck, we don't even know if Rutgers supports this, or if this team is even ready to play. We don't know if we can tailgate at the ...

Meanwhile, motorists pulled their cars to the side of the ...

The Jaffe Briefing - September 15, 2020

SUSSEX COUNTY – C’mon people. Those who claim mail-in voting does not work have yet another botched election in which to wag their fingers. Politico reports that nearly 1,700 mail-in ballots for the July primary went uncounted for two months, as they were apparently sitting in a mislabeled bin, collecting dust in some darkened corner. “AH-HA!,” shouts all the Trump ...

The Jaffe Briefing - September 14, 2020

STATEWIDE – When the very first Model T chugged down Route 27 in 1908, let’s assume the motorist was heading to the state’s very first MVC office. And let’s assume he was welcomed by an unexplainable line of impatient people and one overwhelmed employee, already surly and on a smoke break. Long, impenetrable lines at the MVC have been around since the invention of the ...

The Jaffe Briefing - September 11, 2020

NEW YORK – The pandemic is also affecting today’s solemn remembrance of the September 11 terrorist attacks, as there will be no live readings of victims’ names at the World Trade Center. But none of us can never forget, 19 years ago today. We continue to pay our respects.

STATEWIDE – Remember all those millennials snubbing the suburbs for life in denser locales, where ...

OPINION: Illicit Budget Raid of Clean Communities Fund Will Gut Litter Clean Up Programs in NJ

September 18, 2020

In my 40 years in Trenton as a business executive and President of the New Jersey Clean Communities Council (NJCCC), I recognize that these are difficult times for government leaders desperate to find revenue to plug state budget holes. 

But responsible revenue policy must stay within the legal boundaries of state law. 

Case in point: the recent proposal by the state Department of ...
