For District 21, Trump's tax proposal is giving residents twenty thousand reasons to vote Democratic next month.
Trump's tax bill wants to eliminate the State and Local Tax (SALT) deduction on Federal taxes. Of all the voting districts in the country, ours will be among the worst hit as residents here on average get $20,000 a year in deductions directly from SALT.
This tax proposal goes beyond party lines. It's a direct assault on the state of New Jersey, voters, the local economy, and home values. We need to send a message to Trump and the Republican Party that this is unacceptable. November 7th will be the first opportunity voters have to tell Trump and Republicans who aren't standing up to him that this calculated attack on our state will not stand.
Our district went to Clinton and rejected Trump in November by 10 points. Snugly ensconced in New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District, the election on November 7th could be a bellwether for things to come in 2018.
I’m ready to fight for New Jersey families in Trenton, opposing such delusional policies every opportunity possible.
Please, vote Democratic on November 7th so that we can #TakeBackOurDemocracy from this insanity.
Jill LaZare is the Democratic candidate for New Jersey Senate, District 21.
