New Jersey residents views of the quality of life in the state have tumbled to an all-time low.  On Monday Monmouth University released a poll that shows residents rate their quality of life in New Jersey at a record low.  “This is a downward trend that should be very troubling to the folks in Trenton” according to Monmouth University Polling Director Patrick Murray.  “The fact that this number just goes down year after year after year to a 40-year low really tells you something” Murray said.

Pennsylvania’s state constitution bars convicted felons from holding elected office in the state.  Bruce Blunt the Democratic Mayor of Morton Pennsylvania was removed from office by a Common Pleas Judge on Wednesday due to a 1988 conviction for felony aggravated assault, simple assault, resisting arrest and related offenses.  It seems like a no brainier that those with felony convictions be barred from holding holding elected office.  Why does New Jersey not have a similar law?
