SUPPORTING LAW ENFORCEMENT
Vin, Margie, and Luanne understand that in order to keep Monmouth County families safe, law enforcement must be prioritized. Local police departments need to be given the tools and resources necessary to protect our community. They will push for increased funding for local departments, and fight for policies that support law enforcement officers throughout Monmouth County. Recently, Vin worked closely with law enforcement and legislators on both sides of the aisle to pass a bill package aimed at combating the surge in auto thefts in New Jersey in the past two years.
FIGHTING FOR SCHOOL FUNDING
New Jersey has the best public education in the country, and making sure school districts are properly funded is paramount. That is why Vin jumped into action to restore the majority of funding that was lost in Monmouth County due to the S2 formula. Vin also created legislation to create a task force to reevaluate S2 so issues can be addressed in an effective manner. Our team will work across the aisle to pass more common-sense solutions to school funding issues, so that schools receive the resources needed for our kids to achieve success.
PROTECTING HEALTHCARE FREEDOM
Across the country, state legislatures are stripping women of their basic rights. Vin, Margie and Luanne will always fight for women to maintain reproductive freedom and make sure the right to choose is always protected in New Jersey.
LOWERING PRESCRIPTION DRUG COSTS
Vin, Margie, and Luanne know that insurance companies shouldn’t have a monopoly on prices for prescription drugs, especially for our seniors. Vin was the co-sponsor of recent legislation that will expand access to affordable prescriptions for seniors through the “Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled Program” and the “Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program.” Together, Vin, Margie and Luanne will work to break up insurance companies’ hold on prices with legislation similar to StayNJ, which caps prescription costs for seniors and creates competition within the healthcare system.
CUTTING PROPERTY TAXES
Property taxes have increased greatly over the last few years, heightened by increased demand and housing shortages. Too many families are being priced out of their homes or are unable to buy their first home. Vin, Margie, and Luanne will work across the aisle to lower the property tax rate, just like Margie did in Ocean Twp. where she lowered the municipal tax rate four years in a row. They will prioritize legislation to create shared services agreements to make it easier for local governments to participate in joint contracts and support investing in new housing construction.
