Letter from Sen. Jen Beck announcing meeting

Sen. Jen Beck is the elected representative to the Senate from my area. She sent an e-mail about an upcoming meeting the governor is holding in Marlboro. I never used to get these kinds of notices from Sen. Karcher. I find this informative and refreshing -- my elected representative communicating with all her constituents. There can't be enough of this in government.


Dear Constituent,

Governor Corzine will be holding a town hall meeting on February 4th from 7-9pm Marlboro High School to discuss his plan to borrow $40 billion and pay for it with an exorbitant road tax. We strongly urge you to attend this meeting and let the Governor know how you feel about this public policy which will dramatically affect so many of us in this district. This plan will increase the cost of living for everyone in the state, but the largest burden will unfairly fall on the hardworking people of Monmouth and Mercer Counties .

During our recently completed election campaign we opposed this idea and as your elected state legislators we continue to oppose it. At a time when people are leaving New Jersey in droves because it is unaffordable, the last thing we need to do is make it even more unaffordable with this massive road tax.

(For those of you in Mercer County , a date for that town hall meeting has not been announced. When it is, we will let you know.)

If you have any questions, you can email us at SenBeck@njleg.org.


Senator Jennifer Beck

Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande

Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon
