"If you are fed up with the broken promises of our elected officials and you are sick and tired of seeing your property taxes go up year after year with no end in sight, this is your chance to do something about it."
Our mission is to bring fairness to our property taxes in New Jersey. As of April 2018, our organization has been in existence for two years and during those two years, we have tried to make a change. We asked, begged, pleaded and implored the legislators to do something about property taxes. Most legislators are either incompetent, corrupt or unwilling to stand up to special interests. Only few are willing to do something about it. Property taxes have been our number one problem in New Jersey for the past 40 years. Things are guaranteed to get worse unless we, homeowners and taxpayers, take direct control over how our taxes are spent. Change won't happen if we keep electing the same politicians.
As of April 2018, this is the summary of our findings from the past 2 years: It's a Sad Reality!
Proposed reforms as constitutional amendments to be approved by the voters.
1. Freeze all property taxes and all public sector employees’ salaries until the public votes on our reforms.
2. Public employees benefits reforms: Bring them in line with the private sector. These reforms will apply to new hires only. The current system will continue unchanged for current employees, since it was promised to them. So we don’t see any reason why public unions would object to our reforms. In fact, current public employees, especially teachers, are encouraged to support our reforms, for the simple reason that their pension fund is expected to become insolvent in 2027. Once insolvent, the ax will fall on everybody, including their own current benefits. So our advice to public employees and public teachers: Support our reforms to protect your own current benefits.
3. Labor reform:
4. Property Tax Reform and School funding.
It does not matter if you don’t agree with every reform we are suggesting. Remember, YOU the voter will decide what reform becomes part of our constitution when it's time to vote on these amendments. Our mission is to win enough seats in the Legislature to tip the balance towards the homeowners and taxpayers, and along with other taxpayers friendly lawmakers, to give you the chance to vote on these constitutional amendments.
Once you vote on these amendments, they will be cemented in the Constitution and no future Legislature can change that. Homeowners and Taxpayers in New Jersey will be protected and our mission will be accomplished!
Soon we will start the process of assembling our candidates, so if you or someone you know are interested in running on our platform, please let us know.
What’s the alternative to our plan?
Do nothing and watch your property taxes go up every single year, like they've done in the past 40 years. Do nothing and you will have only yourself to blame for you higher property taxes in the future.
It’s all in your hands. But remember, that’s exactly what the N.J.E.A. (Teachers unions) and the public unions want you to do: DO NOTHING AND KEEP PAYING!
