“For New Jersey taxpayers, it’s always death by a thousand cuts with more and more tax hike proposals coming from our governor and the Democratic legislature in Trenton,” said the assemblyman in a statement. “We need to restore fiscal sanity to keep families and jobs here, rather than fleeing to other states.”

Bucco is a Rotarian and has been a member of the Boonton Fire Department for 39 years. He and his wife, Amy, have six children.

“From my legislation proposing tax relief for married couples, 401k retirement savings and addressing the harmful Trenton mandates on municipalities that drive up property taxes, I’m anxious to continue my work fighting for taxpayers, families and seniors in Trenton,” Bucco said in a statement.

Bucco was introduced at the kick-off by Bernardsville resident Christine Cerza, “who met him after years of fighting with health insurance companies on behalf of her daughter Carly who, because of a medical complication, requires around-the-clock care from private-duty nurses,” said the statement.

“Tony’s selfless work and dedication to our community, and in this instance, chronically ill community members, are a testament of his servant’s heart and his desire to institute change where others may think the status quo is just fine,” said Cerza in the statement.

The campaign also announced a new website at, in addition to Bucco's Facebook page at
