Blood donations are urgently needed.”

The centers will help students progress to postsecondary education and develop life skills necessary for them to find employment and live independently as adults.”

It’s bad enough the average property tax bill in New Jersey is more than $9,000, but it’s far higher in many areas of the state. Senator Kristin Corrado noted it is strange the Governor is bragging that the state’s worst-in-the-country property taxes have gotten worse.

“Residents have repeatedly cited property taxes as their top concern,” said Corrado. “Families living in average homes, with three bedrooms and a couple baths are paying almost $800 in property taxes every month — or more than $9,200 this year.  Boasting about that is delusional.”

I am seeking transparency and justification for the expenditure.”

This important information will assist law enforcement officials in identifying, and effectively communicating with, individuals with autism or autism spectrum disorder during vehicle stops.”
