    I keep seeing pushes for solar and wind, but I don’t understand why we don’t focus on available tech. While I applaud the advancement of solar and wind, the tech isn’t there yet, and the batteries required are still awful.


    Is there some specific reason why NJ hasn’t looked at natural gas powered vehicles? I was just told that these guys offer trucks & buses that have 1/10th of the emissions of standard diesel and have renewable Nat Gas that can be done without the fear of fracking or any of the side effects

    Redeem, Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) – Clean Energy Fuels


    The world’s first renewable fuel made entirely from organic waste for commercial vehicles. Redeem, a biomethane …


    I’d very much like to hear your comments as to why we would block this type of thing in favor of much more expensive and destructive battery solutions to total electric.


    Thanks,

    Dear Assemblywoman Jasey,


    I read with great concern the NY Times article of Jan 9 on the proposed expansion of Liberty Golf Course onto public lands. I cannot express how wrong I feel this expansion is for both the environment and for New Jersey.


    Firstly, public lands, purchased with public dollars for the preservation of natural habitats should remain PUBLIC. Not fenced off behind huge fences requiring huge fees to enjoy.


    Second, a golf course is an entirely UNNATURAL public space. The chemicals and fertilizers required to keep that perfect grass all run off into the Hudson, no animals can nest or forage in its constantly mown grass, and they use massive amounts of water in the dry months.


    Lastly, beyond any environmental concerns, Golf is a dying sport. You can google this and find any number of articles on the topic. Liberty is hoping to stem this tide by expanding, but doing so is just throwing good money after bad. They will spend all this money to expand, and still find fewer and fewer people willing to pay the exorbitant fees, or even interested in playing at all.


    Thank you for doing the right thing for New Jersey, and the environment and voting NO to the Liberty State Park Protection Act, in its current form.

    Dear Assemblywoman Jasey,,


    Please stand up to Senator Sweeney and VOTE NO on Monday to the amended bill. Defend our Constitution and don’t segregate NJ. This is socio-economic segregation and a violation of our First Amendment rights.

    As I am sure you know, Catholic schools do not accept religious exemption and private schools are only an option for the wealthy. My special needs child has no where to go. Please do not take away his right to a free public education.

    The amendments make it clear that this is not about public health but about class and religion.

    Do the right thing!

    It is critical that we counter the influence of anti-science religious zealots, whose dangerous rhetoric has caused very serious and preventable infectious disease outbreaks in numerous states across the country. For example, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the reported individual cases of measles in the first five months of 2019 surpassed the total cases per year for the past 25 years. The states that see the highest incidences of the disease are those with the most relaxed exemption laws.

    Hi! Hopefully I’m speaking your language when it comes to disaster safety… you can never be too prepared.


    And with winter in full swing, it’s time to remind everyone how to stay safe.


    Would you be OK with me sending over a handful of resources on this topic for placement on your site?


    You can review each resource (and feel free to modify as you see fit) and then place the list of resources on your site.


    I hope you’ll take me up on the offer, but no worries if you feel like your site is good without this addition – just let me know either way when you get a chance.


    Thank you, and please stay safe!

    Dear Officials,

    As a parent and resident of New Jersey, I am appalled that the state thinks it’s acceptable to remove the constitutional rights of its citizens. On Thursday, December 12, the Senate Health Committee voted in favor of S2173/A3818, a draconian law that abolishes the state’s religious exemption to vaccination. This right has been in place in New Jersey for 45 years, and there is absolutely no reason to remove it—now or any time in the future. A handful of cases of measles out of a population of 8.9 million people does not constitute a public health crisis, and abolishing the religious rights of 2.6% of school children will do nothing to improve public health measures. As such, I urge you to vote “NO” to bills S2173/A3818 when they come up for vote.


    In short, S2173/A3818 discriminates against religious families. The US Constitution and the Constitution of New Jersey grants individuals the right to worship, observe, and express devotion to religious tenets in the manner of their choosing—without scrutiny or interference. If you abolish New Jersey’s religious exemption to vaccination, you will be infringing on my right to worship according to my sincerely held religious beliefs—and preventing thousands of other families from doing the same.


    This bill also makes bad sense from an economic perspective. New Jersey now highest cost of living indexes in the country. Forcing parents who refuse to go against their religious beliefs to homeschool puts an undue financial hardship on families—particularly those who are economically disadvantaged or who are already struggling to make ends meet. Parents who are dependent on one or both salaries could not take exercise this option, creating further economic inequities. Lastly, parents who cannot homeschool will be forced to completely uproot their lives and their children’s lives and move to a state that honors religious exemptions.


    What about the children with IEPs and those needing special services? How will the state provide for their education if they are not allowed in school? This legislation leaves many questions unanswered.


    The most successful public health policies are rooted in education and trust, not coercion. Removing New Jersey’s religious exemption will only create more skepticism about the vaccine program and the intentions of the legislators who are pushing it. The current system we have in place for exemptions is working; there is no public health emergency warranting this bill. State data shows that fewer than 3% of New Jersey students use the religious exemption, giving way to one of the highest student vaccination rates in the country—and surpassing targets for herd immunity.


    The constitutional rights of the citizens of New Jersey are non-negotiable. We have placed our trust in you as our elected official; please, in return, trust us as parents and allow us to worship in a manner agreeable to the dictates of our own conscience, without interference or scrutiny.


    On behalf of all New Jersey families, I implore you to protect our state’s religious freedoms and oppose S2173/ A3818. Thank you in advance for your consideration.


    Thank you,

    Kerri

    Dear Assemblywoman Jasey,

    I am writing to ask you to reverse your stance on S2173 and A3818. These bills are unconstitutional, unAmerican, foster religious discrimination and should be considered a hate crime. The corruption that ensued regarding Senator Sweeney switching the three “no” voting Democrat Legislators is corrupt and unethical. Clearly, it is the best interest of the insurance companies that is important to you and other NJ Democrats rather than our Constitution and our religious rights. I have always been a supporter of yours and I have voted Democrat since I was 18 years old. If this bill passes I will never vote for a NJ Democrat again. Please stop the corruption and underhanded games that are being played. Uphold the Constitution and protect the religious rights of your constituents.

    Good Afternoon,


    I am writing to ask you to pull the bill S2173 from the Health committee agenda. I know you co-sponsored the bill but it violates both a parents’ right to do what is in the best interest of their child as well as the religious rights of families protected under the United States Constitution. It violates the NJ Constitution that promises a free, public education for ALL children (vaccinated and unvaccinated). I ask that it be vetoed and even pulled from the agenda. The laws that are in place are working. There is no need to violate the NJ families like this. The children, in the middle of their school year, will be thrown out of school. The families will move out of NJ or be forced to homeschool. There is nothing good that can come of this.

    I would like to express my concern with bill A6010 regarding mandating the teaching of cursive handwriting. While this skill was once necessary in the past it is completely obsolete in today’s society. Most examples being pushed forth for the need of the cursive writing skill is for the signing of checks or the reading of documents that are written in cursive. If you look at most signatures they do not look like any correct form of cursive handwriting, they are more of a unique scribble that only the person signing can replicate. For legal purposes a signature must only match your legal signature that you created, and has nothing to do with cursive handwriting. The argument that cursive most be taught to read documents written Is cursive also holds little weight as virtually all documents once written in cursive are now instantly available in the printed form. True is the fact that if you wanted to read the Declaration of Independence in its true form you would have to read it in cursive, but is that a strong enough reason to take precious time out of a child’s school day to teach cursive handwriting. I would much rather my child learn Math, English, Science, and Computer Programming, than learning an obsolete form of handwriting. When decision makers are casting their vote regarding this bill I hope they consider the teaching time we will be taking away from new and emerging sciences and mathematics if this bill were to be passed.

    Dear Assemblywoman Jasey,


    Each year, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday, the Social Action Committee and Sisterhood of Temple B’nai Abraham in Livingston sponsors a Women’s Interfaith Forum, featuring a delicious vegetarian/dairy dinner prepared by our Sisterhood, followed by a discussion of a contemporary problem by four panelists, along with a Q & A. In the past, we have addressed food insecurity, opioids, women’s health and career problems, among many others.


    This year, our 26th anniversary event will be held on Wednesday, January 22 (snow date, January 23). We have chosen as our theme, “Diversity: Embrace It, Share It, Celebrate It/ What Local Communities Are Doing.”


    New Jersey is one of the most (if not THE most) diverse states in the nation. That said, I would like to invite you to be part of a four-member panel, talking for about 10 minutes specifically about how, as a state (and/or your legislative district), New Jersey has handled its diversity.


    If you are available on the evening of January 22nd, we’d be pleased to have you join us. Dinner starts at 6 PM, and the program winds up at 9 PM.


    Please let me know if you can come and be part of this exciting event. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Best,

    Hello there,


    While I write about a lot of topics, one that is near and dear to me is the topic of driving safety. Specifically, driving safety during natural disasters. It’s true that you can’t predict every possible outcome, but you can absolutely take steps to be better prepared for a lot of them.


    For example: always have an extra phone battery, water and snacks, a fully stocked first aid kit, and emergency roadside markers. And what about auto insurance? What type should you have to cover any damage your car might sustain and how do you file a claim?


    Would an article on this topic be useful to you and your site visitors? If so, please let me know. I’d love the opportunity to write for you!


    Just send me a quick email to let me know; if you do want an article to post on your site, I will get started on it asap. (If you don’t, no worries – just promise me you’ll drive safely and have appropriate supplies in your car for ‘just in case’ situations!)

    Please Oppose A1991 / S941


    Dear Assemblywoman Jasey,


    It is very disheartening for me to see that Senate Higher Education Committee passed S941/A1991 and NO public testimony was permitted, which is a violation of the Rules of the Senate of the State of New Jersey – 22:2 Public Attendance, Comment; Notice, Recording. (attached) “Citizens present who wish to be heard on a matter under consideration by the committee must be afforded the opportunity to speak, subject to reasonable limitations as me be set by the chair.” Permitting NO comments at all is not a reasonable limitation.

    Today, the same bill was put on the agenda for tomorrow, 6/27, again deliberately being pushed forward without sufficient time for our representatives to look into the rationale, facts and figures, or for the public to get involved. The disregard for a transparent democratic process and lack of respect for the voting representatives is extremely concerning to me.


    This bill is a MANDATE for all current and future meningitis vaccines that are recommended by the ACIP for ALL NJ college students, which completely disregards individual medical needs and the doctor-patient relationship. It includes all students regardless of whether they live on-campus, off-campus, even those that take classes online or even if they are high school students taking college classes, subjecting thousands of youth to harmful side-effects for a disease so rare that the miniscule potential benefit cannot justify the mandate.


    To date, over 31,000 meningitis vaccine reactions have been reported to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System). Please see link below with data:


    http://www.medalerts.org/vaersdb/findfield.php?TABLE=ON&GROUP1=CAT&VAX=MNQHIB&VAXTYPES=Meningitis&fbclid=IwAR15RHfvV59Ewrk_jTlOEYwBtOY9hhiC60mr3D3xftymnV_qcRS3hYOTk8M


    This is a continued eroding of medical freedoms and turning over control of medical care to the Pharmaceutical industry. An industry that is riddled with corruption and ethical violations (Opioid crisis, Vioxx scandal, Thalidomide disaster). An industry that was provided blanket immunity for any vaccine reactions and deaths.


    I ask you whole-heartedly to research vaccine adverse events. This bill, if passed by the Senate, will injure thousands of innocent students, and the manufacturers will not be held liable.


    You can see the vaccine inserts and side effects for these vaccines here:


    2.1% for Bexsero(GlaxoSmithKlein)

    https://www.fda.gov/media/90996/download?fbclid=IwAR3cA7-aW-GrUr6X9Eg3loBhfvFY5Jm24f_xjKIUj2RWS2S-VROKnuEFVXA


    and 1.8% for Trumenba (Pfizer)

    https://www.fda.gov/media/89936/download?fbclid=IwAR3kt9b3imQD4mAD6pZKNKs_G08h6kDAfVVe4Ent1zJNCPDkN7ldJAGUN7c


    Bacterial meningitis is extremely rare. There is no emergency to warrant this policy. Current CDC protocols are present and working on campuses. The vaccine is available and being used by those who deem it necessary. This bill is a complete over-reach of government control for the benefit of corporations above citizens. It is not necessary and sets a very dangerous precedent. S941 Mandates all current and future meningitis recommendations with no oversight, or checks and balances.


    No other state REQUIRES this vaccine. If this bill passes, you’re effectively allowing NJ to become the post-licensing testing ground.


    A Yes vote will be responsible for the thousands of young students that will be damaged by this completely unnecessary mandate.


    YOU HAVE THE POWER to change this trajectory and protect our children. Please vote NO to this bill and do not let it move forward.


    I will be in Trenton tomorrow, and I would love a chance to meet you in person and introduce myself. Please let me know if you have any availability in the morning. I am also happy to come back another time during the summer to meet with you.

    Dear Assemblyman Casey,


    I am a dance/movement therapist, and I am writing to you regarding the importance of licensing dance/movement therapists and drama therapists in New Jersey. I am a resident of Livingston, NJ.


    It is my hope that you will vote YES when the Drama Therapists and Dance/Movement Therapists Licensing Act (A1220/S675) comes up for a vote on Monday June 10th. Drama therapists and dance/movement therapists are all Master’s level clinicians trained through graduate level academic courses, practicums, and clinical internships. Drama therapists and Dance/Movement therapists work with a wide range of populations, in a wide range of settings, including: Veteran’s facilities, psychiatric and medical hospitals, substance abuse and addiction recovery programs, rehabilitation facilities, schools for children with special needs, hospice care, and nursing homes.


    This bill will license Drama Therapy and Dance/Movement Therapy in NJ. It will regulate these highly effective professions, in order to protect the public from untrained and unlicensed practitioners who might potentially do harm to consumers, many of whom are the most vulnerable citizens in the state.


    Thank you, in advance, for supporting the Drama Therapists and Dance/Movement Therapists Licensing Act (A1220/S675), by voting YES, on June 10, 2019.

    Hi Mila,


    Knowing that we’re in the final days of the Primary Election, we want to see you win your race, and I hoped to set up a quick call to discuss our 1:1 voter hypertargeting technology. We are the postal service of the internet. If you provide us with a list of physical mailing addresses (voter file), instead of the home receiving a post card they would receive banner ads as they surf the internet, and we can deliver 30-50 banner ads to a household for the price of one direct mail piece. For 1-to-1 voter contact, we are by far the most efficient spend of your budgets.


    We invented and patented this technology, we’re the fastest growing Ad Tech in the world right now, and we’re the only company in the world that can do this. In the last three years, over 85% of the 3,000+ candidates that have used our tech have won their seats.


    Please Note – we are a technology, not an agency nor consultants. We work with hundreds of political agencies who act as resellers, many of whom whitelabel our technology, but we handle all of the delivery.


    Let’s chat for 10 minutes to discuss our tech and how we can help you win in the general. Are you available today after 12pm ET?

    Hey.


    I was looking over your site, and I have to commend you. It’s full of great info. I didn’t see much about being prepared for winter weather though. This winter is supposed to be colder than usual in many parts of the country, and you know how dangerous and costly winter weather can be if you aren’t ready for it.


    So, I thought I’d pass along some of these resources in case you want to add them to your site. I chose visual guides because people are visual learners (see my source below). They’re also more shareable and easier to print, which is always a plus. ;)


    Winter Storm Emergency Kit (https://www.economical.com/en/blog/economical-blog/february-2017/before-during-and-after-a-winter-power-outage) – This visual guide, and the article that accompanies it, outlines how to prepare for one of winter’s most common problems: power outages. A winter storm kit can keep your family safe and warm and keep an inconvenience from turning into a true emergency.


    Home Winterization Checklist (https://www.homeadvisor.com/r/home-winterization-checklist/) – Many people think of home weatherization as a complicated, expensive task. In actuality, just taking the easy, DIY steps outlined in this visual guide will keep your home protected from the weather and probably save you some money on your electric bills as well.


    What’s Your Winter Weather Scenario? (https://weather.com/safety/winter/news/winter-scenario-damage) – Whether you’re expecting freezing temperatures, winter weather, or strong winds, this flow chart helps you figure out what damage your home might suffer — and what steps you can take to prevent it.


    Winter Weather Flood Risks (https://disastersafety.org/freezing-weather/winter-infographics/) – Most people don’t think of floods as a winter emergency, but melting snow and frozen soil can easily cause the water to rise outside and inside your home. Follow the tips in this graphic to reduce your chances of experiencing a disaster.


    Winter Car Emergency Kit Checklist (https://www.taylorautoglass.com/car-winter-safety-kit/) – From hazardous driving conditions to freezing temperatures, winter is a tough time of year for drivers and their vehicles. This printable checklist tells you what to pack in your trunk so you’ll be prepared for car trouble, an accident, or any other emergency.


    If you can use these, great. If not, no worries. Thanks for all you do to keep people safe and healthy.


    To preparedness!

    Dear Assemblywoman Jasey,

    After years of voting for you since moving to West Orange, NJ, I am sad to say that you have lost my support. Today, I received a mailer paid for in part by you, along with Assemblyman McKeon, and Sen. Codey, that endorses West Orange Mayor Robert Parisi, Victor Cirilo, Susan McCartney, Cheryl Merkilinger, and Terry Trigg-Scales. I have not felt such disappointment in the democratic system since Donald Trump was elected president, and quite frankly feel nauseous that my NJEA dues help to support candidates who would so openly embrace candidates who represent what is wrong with politics today.

    I am proud to stand with Terry Trigg-Scales who is running for Board of Education, but am baffled at why you would support Cheryl Merklinger who is a GOP member, and supports Trump, Pence, and the NRA. (And since when do elected state representatives provide funding through endorsements to BOE candidates?) Please look up Cindy Matute-Brown for Town Council, and see the bright, progressive future your endorsement is attempting to squash by endorsing “establishment players” who have no new visions for the future of West Orange.

    With regards to your endorsement of Robert Parisi for mayor, I wish you would have done some more investigative research to see who exactly you are supporting. Again, an individual who is a part of the problem as we work to help make West Orange more affordable, safe, senior-friendly, and environmentally viable.

    I have reached out to the campaign chairs of the progressive candidates running against Victor Cirilo, Susan McCartney, and Cheryl Merklinger, and must share that they are very disappointed with your endorsement. (And in fact are quite disgusted.)

    Thank you for your commitment and service, but this time you made a very poor choice that may have devastating effects on myself, my family, my community, and the future of progressive change at the municipal level.

    With sincerity,

    Dear Assemblywoman Jasey,

    The Christie administration did its best to destroy NJ Transit. Now it is on the Democrats to fix it. We need more communication, and more pressure on the agency. In addition, we need to end the practice of replacing as many managers as possible with political appointees which change every few years. Of course, the top posts need to be appointed, but from very close to the top on down we need professional transit people to run this agency. Recruit the best and pay them. Too much or our regional economy depends on our bus and train service to downplay this problem.

    Thank you,

    Dan Dietrich

    As a constituent and someone whose family history includes breast cancer, Alzheimer’s and high cholesterol, which has taken tolls on numerous loved ones, I urge you to sponsor a Comprehensive Health Care Billing Transparency Act, modeled after a similar measure proposed in Colorado. This bill would simply require that all healthcare providers, be they hospitals, clinics, physicians practices, etc. must

    Publish their fee schedules or other lists of charges the facilities bill for specific health care services before applying any discounts, rebates, or other charge adjustment mechanisms;

    Include in every bill sent to a patient an itemized detail of each health care service provided, the charge for the service, how any payment or adjustment by the patient’s health insurer was applied to each line item in the bill, and, for hospitals, the amount of the healthcare affordability and sustainability fee the hospital is charged;

    and In situations where an individual provides health insurance information to the facility or a provider in a facility setting, disclose whether the facility or provider participates in the individual’s health insurance plan; whether the services the facility or provider will render will be covered as an in-network or out-of-network benefit; and whether the individual will receive a service from an out-of-network provider at an in-network facility.

    These regulations are neither onerous not arbitrary for healthcare providers, and could be enforced at a small cost to the state regulatory body.

    Without price transparency, patients and insurance providers lack the ability to search around for the most affordable options for their care. This means people who are uninsured or have high-deductible insurance can be financially devastated by a single health emergency (Medical bills are actually the largest cause of bankruptcy in America). Alternatively, people will forego care if they don’t know if they will be able to afford it, and making themselves sicker in the process. In my community, I have seen modern medicine save lives, such as when my grandmother had breast cancer, and I would wish any obstacle to care, like a lack of transparent pricing, be eliminated. Thank you for your consideration and please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss this issue further.
