The Jaffe Briefing - September 24, 2018

STATEWIDE - In this era of social media, we've all lost our minds. Yes, we freely give away any and all personal information about ourselves, with the desperate hopes of getting a "Like." But even more shocking is what we are doing with our kids, who hide away in the basement to play Fortnite, Minecraft or any other game in which they have free and easy contact with the ...

EAST ORANGE - Another day, another school bus driver about to be fired. This one works in East Orange or Orange, where apparently he was driving Tuesday morning "under the influence," slamming into five cars in the two towns, as well as a fire hydrant and two traffic poles, on this very bumpy bus ride to school. To add to this, NJ.com reports the 52-year-old driver had a ...

TRENTON - So, if New Jersey lights up for legal weed, what will it all mean? New Jersey lawmakers have emerged from the fog with a proposed bill - not yet fully baked - suggesting the lowest marijuana taxes in the nation, at just 10 percent (for starters.) There would be set-asides for minorities, small businesses and women to get retail licenses, as well as preferences given to ...

The Jaffe Briefing - September 18, 2018

TRENTON - If, one day, New Jersey becomes a shining example for miraculously digging itself out of debt, perhaps historians will dig up this little story. Gov. Phil Murphy and the public sector labor unions seem to be on the same page - for this fleeting moment - to save $500 million in health care benefits from 800,000 current and retired teachers. Retired teachers will be moved to ...

The Jaffe Briefing - September 17, 2018

CHATSWORTH - Lot of chatting this morning in New Jersey's cranberry bogs, with word of a new bill in Trenton that would officially deem blueberry as the official state muffin. Politico reports that Assemblywoman Carol Murphy (D-Burlington) has introduced this controversial legislation, at the request of well-intended children involved in a non-profit. These kids clearly ...

The Jaffe Briefing - September 14, 2018

STATEWIDE - Are you happy? Like, really, really happy? Well, you should damn well be, according to one of those clickbait websites that churns out "studies." The site has declared that New Jersey is the 13th happiest state, based on 31 "key indicators." Even though taxes are high, traffic is heavy and the state is drowning in debt, the typical New Jerseyan seems to ...
