To the Editor:
The swearing-in of Assemblywoman Donna M. Simon to the seat vacated by the late Peter J. Biondi now completes the delegation for the 16th Legislative District, which includes Princeton Borough and Princeton Township. With that, we would like to say we are honored to represent the citizens of Princeton Borough and Princeton Township in the state legislature.
As your state representatives, we are committed to providing leadership that is honest, independent, principled, and determined; we are committed to reforms that make our state government smaller, less expensive, and smarter; and we are committed to addressing the tax burdens New Jerseyans face, especially specific to property taxes. Not before our state government fulfills these commitments can we expect the private sector to create jobs, grow the economy, and return New Jersey to prosperity.
Nothing serves the public good more than an involved citizenry — we ask that our constituents publicly engage as we endeavor to provide them with the quality representation they deserve.
Senator Christopher “Kip” Bateman
Assemblyman Jack M. Ciattarelli
Assemblywoman Donna M. Simon
