An Open Letter to NJ State Senator Ray Lesniak
Posted 3/16/2014 12:39:00 PM

Dear Seantor Lesniak,

I'm writing you this Open Letter at this time to express my concerns over your current proposal to increase New Jersey's gasoline tax. At a time when New Jersey's working familes can barely afford to keep their children fed and clothed, this increase of 4 cents-per-gallon per year over a 6 year period would create an undue hardship. For the wealthiest state residents, this tax will have little or no impact; but for the hard-working and honest middle class residents of our beloved state, this will once again force our families to make major adjustments in their lifestyles. Too many families are already put in positions of having to choose what bills to pay first, and what else they need to sacrifice to keep food on the table, and a roof over their heads. I am proud to say that New Jersey has one of the lowest per-gallon taxes on gasoline in the country, and your proposal would strip our state of something very unique; something that separates us from our neighboring states. 

I salute you for your military service to our great country, and for all of the great work you have done in representing the state's 20th district. But Senator Lesniak, I implore you to please reconsider this tax increase.


Very truly yours,

Bert Baron

A lifelong New Jersey resident

    Mr. Baron, I like your letter. I wonder if it would help to look at how the state's funds are already being spent and working to cut out waste and fraud? Does it seem reasonable to assume that there's probably other ways to generate funds for infrastructure repair and upgrades?
