The choices made by a select few impact the lives of all New Jerseyans even if it doesn't feel that way in the day to day lives of most. Politicians like it this way, a lack of accountability allows them to build long careers regardless of their performance. This is not the way our government was meant to operate. If elected I promise I will be transparent and accountable, and work tirelessly to make New Jersey a better place to live, to work, and to raise a family.
New Jersey's highest in the nation property tax rate is a burden on every homeowner, especially our seniors. These rates also prevent young people from purchasing their first home.
Cut New Jersey's highest in the nation property tax rate
Locate and implement cost savings through consolidation to lower administrative costs and data-driven solutions to optimize government spending efficiencies
Ensure new revenue streams, like legalized marijuana, are not treated as a blank check used to increase spending but rather go towards reducing the property tax burden on our residents
New Jersey's parents deserve the right to determine the best educational opportunity for their children. We need to put our children first and start measuring education in terms of outcomes achieved, not dollars spent.

Increase dual enrollments, enabling students to earn college credits or technical certifications in high school
