Keeping a 2017 campaign promise Governor Murphy signed Executive Order No. 91 on Wednesday creating a Public Bank Implementation Board. The Board is tasked with developing an implementation plan for a public bank within one year. The private bank would hold the millions of taxpayer funds that are normally kept in commercial banks and use them for low-interest loans to small businesses, student loans, affordable housing and infrastructure projects that may not qualify for traditional funding. Murphy signed the order at a ceremony at New Jersey Citizens Action’s offices in Newark. New Jersey Citizens Action has been pushing the idea of a public bank for years.

My Name is Tricia Flanagan, and I’m the Republican candidate running to represent the People of New Jersey in the United States Senate.
The New Jersey Legislature began its lame-duck session yesterday. It’s expected that the Legislature will be busy trying to bring forward controversial bills that they didn’t want to move forward before the 2019 election to not damage Democratic candidates and before the new session begins in January in hopes the voters will forget by the 2020 election. Those bills will most likely include driver licenses for illegal immigrants, “legalized” marijuana (marijuana cannot be legalized on a state level while remaining federally illegal), and banning single use plastics. Expect Murphy to move his radical agenda forward knowing that voters have short memories and will forget before the 2020 election and before he is up for re-election in 2021.
A press release posted this morning on Insider NJ referred to Hirsh Singh as the “front-runner for U.S. Senate in 2020”. The release also called Singh “the” Republican candidate clearly forgetting that there are at least 3 other candidates in the race. The release left me wondering what Singh is the front-runner in? Front-runner in living in his parent’s basement? Front-runner in losing multiple prior elections? Front-runner in hiding from the voters (I’ve rarely heard him speak publicly nor have I heard him speak on issues important to New Jerseyans)? I’m wondering if in his next release Singh will simply skip the 2020 election and declare himself Senator?
While Democrats still hold a majority in New Jersey Republicans had reason to celebrate on Tuesday night and Democrat State Senate President Steve Sweeney slammed Democrat Governor Phil Murphy. After Murphy told reporters that Democrat wins in lower-tier races and tight races in competitive State Assembly districts amounted to a successful night for Democrats saying “the party is stronger than before without question” Sweeney replied “Are you kidding me?” . Sweeney told NJ Advance Media “Really? How do you spin that? It wasn’t a good day. This is the first net loss in the Senate in a decade. You can spin it however you want. We lost”.
In March of 2017 the Egg Harbor Township School Board voted down a transgender student policy. Tuesday night the School Board introduced a new policy which was approved on its first reading. The policy will be up for a final vote at the November Egg Harbor Township School Board meeting.
Democratic Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders told CNN’s Climate Town Hall in September that he supports a woman’s right to an abortion in part because it helps combat the effects of climate change. The revelation was in response to a question asking if he supports population growth as a way to address climate catastrophe.
#JEXIT is a national movement dedicated to educating and encouraging American Jews who are currently members of the Democrat Party to EXIT the Democrat Party and join President Trump who is a great friend to Jewish people and the state of Israel.

Democratic Activist and Chair of the Morris County Democratic Party Building Task Force Bob Grant wrote an opinion piece that was published on NJ.com yesterday. Bob gave his opinions on why Democrats are losing power apparently forgetting to mention that the Democratic party is losing ground because it has become radicalized and no longer resonates with the average middle class American family. Bob then says;
