    Mila, I was happy to support your recent event in South Orange with Ambassador Murphy. I am sorry I was unable to attend in person as I was returning from a meeting in south Jersey, and traffic was at a standstill in the downpour that evening. Good luck in the elections.

    I left a voicemail today but thought the contact form might be easier for you to respond to. Judy Levy, a common friend of mine and Mila’s, is trying to introduce my son for volunteer work. He’s a high school sophomore and was hoping to get involved with the program in some way. Judy gave me the address mjasey@aol.com, but Jake has emailed twice with no response, so I assume that email is no longer used.


    Is there someone he should speak to about getting involved?


    Thanks in advance.

    Dear Assemblywoman Jasey,

    I am writing you in support of A906, which establishes a pilot program in the Department of Children and Families that would provide animal-assisted therapy (dogs) to victims of childhood violence, trauma, or children with behavioral health care needs and appropriates $100,000 for this effort. The bill is co-sponsored by Assemblywomen Valerie Vainieri Huttle and Patricia Egan Jones. There has been significant research on the benefits pet therapy for victims of post-traumatic stress syndrome- primarily in military veterans- and these benefits extend to our most vulnerable population of children.

    I believe this bill will establish a valuable service for New Jersey children impacted by violence and trauma. They can heal through appropriate clinical interventions, including animal- assisted therapy. I have a great interest in this bill based on my current field placement as a social work student intern (Simmons College, Boston) at Families and Community Together, the Union County Care Management Organization under the New Jersey Children’s System of Care, my twelve years of experience working as a CASA in Essex County, and my role as the parent of a child who benefited from animal-assisted therapy as a result of spending time in an Eastern European orphanage as an infant. Dogs have a wonderful bond with children and can help them overcome trauma.

    The long term effects of trauma can be devastating. We have the chance to save children’s lives through supportive services such as animal-assisted therapy. These children, if provided this therapy, may stay in school longer, develop positive coping skills, and avoid the legal system.

    I know, Assemblywoman Jasey, that you have been a strong supporter over the years of children’s issues. As the former president (Laura Bencivenga is my married name) of the Millburn-Short Hills Special Education Parents Committee, we had the pleasure of you speaking to our group as well as several other parent groups in our town. I am hopeful that your ongoing support of these children who have been victims or witnesses to violence will extend to voting yes for A906.

    I would appreciate hearing your opinion on this bill, if you support it, and how New Jersey can continue to be a leader in children’s issues. If you would like to contact me, you are welcome to do so. Thank you for your anticipated response and thank you for all you do for our District.


    Sincerely yours,


    Laura Perry

    Dear Assemblywoman Mila M. Jasey,


    I wanted to reach out to you on behalf of my support for your sponsorship on Assembly Number 1016 in the 217th Legislature. The bill entitles, “Establishes task force to study issues related to the establishment of full-day kindergarten.” I support your bill for this task force because I am currently a teacher’s assistant in a private child care center in Norwood, NJ. As a teacher’s assistant I see the importance of having a full day of kindergarten. Children are constantly developing and growing everyday. They are extremely influential at this age. Having a full day kindergarten program at our child care center is important to the parents and the children’s education. However the costs are unattainable to parents with a lesser income. Most of our parents work full time and depend on the facility to educate their adolescents while providing them with a safe environment. A full day of kindergarten provides parents with more time to work while the teachers help them develop social skills. From the beginning of September to November their communication skills have matured as well as their ability to effectively play with others. Having the full day routine reinforces the lessons learned each day. At the start of the school year they were unable to read or write. Towards Thanksgiving they were able to write letters to their loved ones, veterans and read the posters around the room. Practicing with the children everyday and having a continuous routine strengthened their cognitive skills.


    Fortunately I was able to help raise my youngest brother who is currently in kindergarten and attending Brookside Elementary in Westwood, NJ. Over the last few months I have watched his social skills develop. Prior to the full day program he had a hard time sharing with his friends. Now he constantly asks to have playdates and he is sharing his toys when we visit the playground. Although the most positive impact the full day program had was on our family was the opportunity for my mother to go back to work full time. The advantage of my mom going back to work helped my family save money in order to place a deposit on a house. As we saved money the household dynamic became less stressful. The financial burden held our family back from strengthening together. This change in our school district gave my mom a chance to work full time and my brother an efficient education. I am hopefully this bill will be passed and give New Jersey an opportunity to have a full day kindergarten program and agree with my positive feedback. Again, thank you for your support on this bill.


    Thank you,

    Samantha Mancuso

    Dear Assemblywoman Jasey,

    I am writing you in regards to the bill up for vote, A4126/S2483. I urge you to please vote YES on this bill. Maybe this will have an effect on helping people who are victims of domestic abuse to not be further terrorized and killed by their partners. I believe that comprehensive gun reform such as this is the direction our state and country needs to move in order to protect our citizens from unnecessary violence and death.

    Thank you for your service,

    I’m am not an overly political person – but with this cynical, dirty and sickening tax vote that you just made… you can be certain that I will invest substantial personal effort to ensure you are not re-elected.


    How any working voter in NJ could forgive this is beyond me. We are not stupid. We know that the bill is a time-bomb that will trigger more increases as the funds are (surely) mismanaged in the future. Jersey voters aren’t stupid. I can assure you, we will remember.

    Thank you for the recent proposed legislation re: HESAA NJCLASS loan program. However, I am a bit disappointed in the following statement you made, “We must offer the NEXT generation the tools to be successful at our colleges and universities”— the NEXT generation? What about the generation of NJCLASS loans borrowers that were forced into default and bankruptcy because HESAA refused to offer any assistance. I am sorry, but my son’s loans were only in repayment 18 mths before HESAA defaulted and he made over $10,000 in payments to them—what kind of legislation are you proposing for those borrowers who did all they could to pay their loans? Since 2013, I have written to every single legislature of this State, including your office, requesting an investigation into HESAA. Yet, no one cared; everyone ignored me. It was I who provided Annie Waldman (journalist from ProPublica) with all the contact information for the borrowers featured in her article.


    I believe that an immediate investigation into HESAA’s default policy and an immediate investigation into the circumstances surrounding individual loan defaults must be conducted. My son, at age 26, was forced into a Chapter 13 bankruptcy just so he can make payments on his NJCLASS loans—how did this happen? In essence, the message I perceived from the current legislation being proposed, along with your comments and Assemblyman Schaer’s comments is it’s okay that past borrowers were forced into bankruptcy just to obtain a college education. That message is not okay with me and it’s not okay with hundreds of other NJCLASS loan borrowers forced into default/bankruptcy with no means to revert their loans into good standing.


    Today, I am asking you to propose immediate legislation that will allow defaulted borrowers and borrowers with default judgments to rehabilitate or restructure their NJCLASS loans. It is not fair that these borrowers, who were the borrowers who brought these issues to light, are being tossed aside and are not being provided with any way to get out of the financial ruin HESAA put them in.


    I would be more than happy to sit down with you to discuss this matter. Please feel free to contact me anytime. Thank you.

    Hi!


    It probably wouldn’t shock most people to learn that weather-related disasters have increased in frequency and intensity over the last several years (1). Indeed, the wrath of nature can be frightening — but the good news is that we aren’t powerless against it.

Please feel encouraged to add any (or all) these to your fantastic list of community resources. This list would be a nice fit on your website (especially if shared here: http://www.jaseyforassembly.org/?page=5).

    Dear Assemblywoman Jasey,

    I had previously written to you, asking for your support in getting the Assembly of Higher education to vote on Bills, A-1612 and A-1613. I implore you to call the vote now, as the Senate had already approved the Bills last June.

    I was reviewing comments of the signers of the petition that I drafted to garner support for the proposed legislation. (A-1612 & A-1613) The aforementioned petition now has approximately


    14,000 signatures. I felt obliged to share some of those statements below:

    Not to deter young people from Pershing an education, but to create a space in which they can complete their education, grow as a person and live to put their knowledge and wisdoms into action to better the world around them. I believe if colleges have to publicly put out the suicise rates of their students, they will work harder to provide an atmosphere in which those who may need help, encouragement or treatment will not feel afraid or ashamed to seek it, not give up on the process due to uncommitted, non compassionate leaders.


    Mental Health is VERY important and some colleges need a reminder of that. I work for a university as an RA and we see mental health issues being swept under the rug by students and it is so sad.


    I am a Junior at Marquette and i feel lost. I dont know what it is or why i feel this way. Everything going on in my life suggests that i should be nothing but happy, and yet, sometimes i am just not. Madison’s story speaks to me. Truth must be known. God Bless Madison and the Halloran family.


    As a struggling college student dealing with mental illness I believe that this law needs to be passed… Maybe then the countries universities will recognize how much pressure they put on their students no matter what the circumstances are. Rest in peace Madison


    As someone who lost a very close friend to suicide during my freshman year of college, and as someone who now struggles with depression and grief because of it, I think that this petition is an incredible start to solving a devastating problem.


    An awesome law to be passed! Depression is a big then when you’re at this age trying to figure out “whats next”. I’ve been through it, almost died from pills it would have been easier if people were aware of everything. Please make this a law!


    This law should have been created years ago. Rest in peace Madison <3


    Such an important topic as this disturbing trend, although ubiquitous, seems to be downplayed on campuses.


    I lost my son Nicholas two months ago, he was 17 and battling severe depression. Any effort to improve suicide prevention is worth supporting.


    We have lost too many young people to the tragedy of suicide. We need resources to help our children as they adjust to being away from home and colleges need to accurately assess the needs of their students in order to make those resources available.


    Something needs to give and we need to take a stand. Show the world that depression is more than being sad, that it is an illness that you live with! Let’s all take a stand together for Madison.


    The heartfelt statements above represent a small sampling of the comments rendered by the thousands of signers of the petition. Please pass those bills quickly, so that we can, in Madison Holleran’s memory, save some lives of potential suicide victims on college campuses. New Jersey is on the verge of making this happen. Please act sooner, rather than later.


    Sincerely,

    Ed Modica and Pam Philipp

    As a Doctor of Physical Therapy with my own practice in Brick NJ, Bill A1839 is very important to me. Please vote " yes " to this bill! Part of this bill addresses Intramuscular Manual Therapy more commonly known as “Dry needling (DN).” This is a skilled intervention used by physical therapists that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. Dry needling is a western medicine approach and is NOT the practice of Acupuncture or Chinese Medicine. Physical therapists have been safely performing dry needling in the United States for the past 25+ years, according to the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy. Dry needling is confirmed to be within PT scope in 25 states and Washington DC. In most other states this topic is “open”, like new Jersey. The United States Military permits only licensed physicians AND physical therapists to perform dry needling on our military personnel. In NJ, the 87th Medical Group Physical Therapy Clinic at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst offers dry needling as one of their services to active duty service members.

    A study published in 2010 in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine by an MD and a PhD concluded that “Its (dry needling) effectiveness has been confirmed in numerous studies and 2 comprehensive systematic reviews. Dry needling can be used as part of complex treatment for chronic musculoskeletal pain…”

    Dry needling is only part of a comprehensive physical therapy program which includes neuromuscular, re-education, manual therapy, therapeutic exercises, postural correction, movement re-education, etc.


    Our state needs to be modernized regarding this topic and keep pace with the rest of the country and the world.

    The great people of New Jersey deserve to have access to this intervention performed by Doctor’s of Physical Therapy.


    Please Vote yes to Bill A1839!


    Thank you for your support

    My name is Ed Modica. I am a retired fifth grade teacher from Totowa, New Jersey. I spent my thirty-seven year teaching career in Allendale, New Jersey, and I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed my tenure as a teacher.

    I would like to take this opportunity to explain the nature of my email. On January 17, 2014, Madison Holleran, a former student of mine, died of suicide. Madison was bright, beautiful, and an extremely talented athlete. Madison was a freshman, enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania. Her death left a tremendous void in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to have known her.

    Shortly after Madison’s passing, I began to research suicide on college campuses. Needless to say, I was shocked to learn that the numbers, in my humble opinion, had almost reached epidemic proportions. Unfortunately, it was too late for Madison, but I was determined to try and help future potential suicide victims in Madison’s honor. I then drafted two pieces of legislation in Madison’s name, and started a petition to gain support for said legislation. To date, 13,869 people have signed the petition, and it continues to draw support daily.

    Jim and Stacy Holleran, although completely devastated by the loss of their precious daughter, continue to speak openly about Madison’s suicide, in an effort to help others avoid the same fate. The parenting skills of the Hollerans are worthy of emulation by their peers.

    I enlisted the services of a very dear friend of mine, Pamela Sinforosa Philipp, who arranged for a meeting with representatives of the 40th Legislative District, where Madison was a resident. Pam collected the information I had gathered, and she forwarded all of the materials to the offices of Senator Kevin O’Toole and Assemblyman Scott Rumana, prior to our meeting on December 3, 2014. When we arrived the representatives of the district had already seen the merit of the proposed legislation.

    Pam and I have worked diligently and tirelessly to bring this vital legislation to fruition. We have received a great deal of support from many individuals in New Jersey, and also from concerned people from across the United States. As you are aware, the Senate of the Higher Education Committee has already voted unanimously in favor of The Madison Hollleran Acts, as they are now called. That action transpired this past June. We are very concerned that the Assembly of the Higher Education Committee has yet to act.

    Please encourage your colleagues to vote now on this vital legislation. Thank you very much for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

    If you have any questions and/or comments please feel free to contact Pam Philipp at 862-571-1168, or Ed Modica at 973-572-7196.

    Dear Assemblywoman: I am David Alston, a senior at Drew University. The Tri-City Branch of the NAACP suggested that I contact you along with John McKeon concerning my case that actually warrants national media attention, David V. Alston v. Kean University, et. al.


    My case concerns how our very own Supreme Court of the United States has committed illegal discrimination against me, empirically based on race and gender, in the conscious deprivation of three civil liberties on behalf of Kean University. The Supreme Court refuses to adhere to their very own Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 60(b)(4), Relief from Void Judgments in total disregard of federal common law and especially United Student Aid Funds v. Espinosa (2008).


    I would like to ask whether there is any legislation that you can devise that will be applicable whenever the Supreme Court of the United States refuses to adhere to its only mandate under Title 28, which is to grant a party relief from a judgment rendered under Rule 12(b)(1) with a total want of jurisdiction that is mandatory and not discretionary, after the judgment has been collaterally attacked as void under Rule 60(b)(4) and both the trial and appellate courts refuse to vacate and remand?


    Kean University violated my procedural due process on May 28, 2012 by wrongfully suspending me for two years based on 10 pages of defamation over Sarah Blood, a white female. I filed suit against Kean under 42 U.S.C. Section 1983, which generated a Rule 12(b)(1) defense for Lack of Subject Matter Jurisdiction due to 11th Amendment sovereign immunity. And so, because all of the facts would declare me the winner in this case if I refiled under the 14th Amendment under which public school students are an affirmed protected property interest, the District Court, on behalf of Kean, dismissed me with prejudice with a total want of jurisdiction to defeat this constitutional justice under the 14th Amendment.


    I eventually motioned for relief under Rule 60(b)(4) and the motion was denied without any determination of jurisdiction, as is required whenever a motion under Rule 60(b)(4) is ever denied. I appealed to the 3rd Circuit and the Court affirmed, seeing to it in the Opinion never to indicate the number 12 followed by paragraph (b), subsection (1) as the federal rule under which I was dismissed with prejudice. I am persecuted and lied on by the 3rd Circuit in the Opinion when there is no discretion for the District Court or the Appellate Court to refuse to vacate a void judgment, specifically a dismissal with prejudice under Rule 12(b)(1) when the Court explicitly determines a total want of jurisdiction.


    I petitioned the Supreme Court for a Writ of Certiorari under Case No. 15-6158 and they copped out in an unconstitutional denial of my petition in the face of United Student Aid Funds v. Espinosa (2008) where Justice Thomas gave the opinion and laid out the qualifications for relief under Rule 60(b)(4) that the Court knew that I met in flying colors. They had no discretion to vote on whether or not they were going to perform the normal standard of review under Rule 60

    (b)(4) if they were going to go as far as to refuse to grant relief that is mandatory and not discretionary. I filed a petition for a rehearing and informed the Court that I have contacted Congress and have filed a racial discrimination complaint against them with the NAACP.


    Rather, there should have been an Opinion of dissent. But then all of the Circuits and the world would have seen illegal discrimination and the deprivation of civil liberties being committed by the Supreme Court of the United States. Such an Opinion would adversely affect common law. The world would see the breaching of three constitutional provisions: The 14th Ament; Rule 12(b)(1); and Rule 60(b)(4).


    I declared that the Supreme Court copped out because, for purposes of Rule 60(b)(4), under which the District Court’s judgment was being attacked as void, the Supreme Court should never have denied my petition if they were going to go so far as to refuse to grant my mandatory relief
