A couple of weeks ago a study showed that New Jersey is the #1 state in the country that people leave. New Jersey just came in first again and again in a category that is not good for New Jerseyans. Yesterday NJ 101.5 radio reported on an ATTOM Data Solutions study showing New Jersey’s rate of foreclosure was the highest among all 50 states and D.C. in 2018.
This week we began the rebranding of the blog to The Informed Conservative. A new web site is being developed and our Facebook page was created. This week we discussed Cory Booker’s potential run for President in 2020, Democratic leadership in NJ rushing through a constitutional amendment that will rig the legislative redistricting process, an Asbury Park Press editorial regarding marijuana legalization, Vincent Squire’s “Season of Giving”, Murphy accomplishing his dream of making New Jersey a sanctuary state, a discussion about leaving NJ or staying and fighting Murphy’s destructive agenda, hundreds of jobs and millions in tax revenues leaving with Honeywell and Murphy focusing his time outside of New Jersey.
New Jersey Governor Murphy has been chosen to serve as Vice Chair for 2019 and Chair-Elect for for 2020 by the Democratic Governor’s Association. In his new roles Murphy will help lead the charge to unseat President Trump in 2020 and help Democratic Governors keep their seats and the Democratic party gain additional state houses. I couldn’t be more thrilled. This means Murphy will spend his time traveling and focused outside of New Jersey. While traditional wisdom will say that we want our Governor in New Jersey and focused on our state I’m looking forward to a break from Murphy’s destructive vision for New Jersey.
