I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you seasons greetings and best wishes for a happy and safe holiday season! I also wanted to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude for your continued support, guidance and engagement as I try my best to represent the men and women of the 7th Legislative District. As 2014 and the blessings of a new year await, I’d like to take a moment to look back at some of the key legislative moments that with your help, we were able to accomplish together.
Whether it was our work to revise the law concerning disabled person identification cards and placards related to parking privileges, create the Helmets to Hardhats program within the New Jersey Turnpike Authority to provide real employment opportunities for returning veterans once they've left the battlefield and come home or through our efforts to create new jobs and keep businesses in New Jersey through the New Jersey Economic Opportunity Act, we did all these things and more by working together to make New Jersey a better place.
But, there is still more work to be done. I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and continuing the fight to bring meaningful tax relief, greater educational opportunity and enhanced economic growth to the residents of the 7th Legislative District. I thank you again....my bosses....for the honor and privilege to serve each of you as one of your Assemblymen. May the warmth and peace of this holiday season wrap itself around you and your families.
Assemblyman, 7th District
