BURZICHELLI: SENIORS NOW LEARNING REALITY OF NEW BUDGET

Assemblyman John Burzichelli (D-Gloucester/Cumberland/Salem) released the following statement Wednesday as the administration began mailing Senior Freeze checks that will not include refunds for this year’s increase in property taxes:

“The reality of this budget is in the mail. New Jersey senior and disabled residents will soon get their first taste of the governor’s budget that favored the wealthy over their ability to keep their home, and they won’t like it. The governor has warned, ‘If you tax them, they will leave.’ Indeed he was right, but it will be the senior citizens who will be leaving our state.”
