I have lived in Westfield, NJ with my family since the early 1990s. In that time there has been a lot of change and mostly for the better. I have always watched politics from the national to local levels. As a constitutional conservative I have always tried to look at any issue through the lens of country/state/municipality and not party. Essentially, what is best for the people and not any given party. This seems to make sense…common sense.

In the election for New Jersey State Assembly coming up on Tuesday, Nov. 5, the question again comes up related to what makes sense for us, the people. The answer I have concluded is the team of Jon Bramnick and Nancy Munoz.

Jon Bramnick and Nancy Munoz have an overall governing track record of clear common sense for what is best for the people they represent. They have been at the forefront of the fight to end court mandated high density housing in our communities. They have a plan to return development decisions back to local governments instead of appointed judges. They are taking on insurance companies to make sure treatment prescribed by our doctors is covered and that any pre-existing conditions don’t disqualify us from coverage. In my opinion, these actions are that of common sense and will help all of us.

Jon and Nancy have also been leading the charge to make New Jersey more affordable. Not for a given party or select group but for all the people they represent. They have a plan to cap state spending and cut income taxes by 10 percent to make sure more of our hard-earned money remains with us, so we decide how that money can best serve ourselves, families and the charities we care about.

Essentially, Jon Bramnick and Nancy Munoz have been fighting to improve our community, cut taxes and keep us safe.  All of us. Their common sense approach to governing continues to be needed.

While I think highly of others seeking to win the New Jersey State Assembly, I am troubled by how far the Democratic Party has moved in a direction that is more about party and not about us and the people they represent. This is not true of every member but certainly too many members of the party. Party must never be valued over country. That simply does not make common sense.

On Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019, I will be voting for Jon Bramnick and Nancy Munoz for New Jersey State Assembly and I urge you to do the same. Not for party but for us. All of us. It just makes sense.
