    Dear John McKeon,


    My wife has been a high school educator for 28 years and has EARNED and accrued 180 sick days. She has been a faithful servant to her school district, rarely taking a sick day, and indeed, encouraged not to with the threat of being reprimanded.


    I urge you to not support the impending legislation (A1851)proposed by Senate President Sweeney as it will harm teachers financially when they retire. If an earnings cap is placed on accrued sick leave the teacher body will use their leave which will in turn harm the district and children’s learning capabilities. Imagine the quality of teaching if classrooms are filled with substitute teachers!


    Teachers have been vilified and financially hit over and over again. Please don’t let this be another time that this occurs.

    I work full time retail at REI in East Hanover. Please let me know where you stand with regard to the proposed legislation permitting fines to be levied on citizens who refuse to wear masks while in retail establishments. My 50 plus coworkers and I are very interested in this issue!

    Good Evening Assemblyman McKeon,


    I need your help solving a problem that I am having correcting an error that was made on my notary public commission that I recently renewed online. My commission number is 50022550. I never received a renewal in the mail and I renewed online to my disappointment. I have sent e-mails, faxed a letter to the Notary Unit explaining the error and, made several attempts to speak to someone from the Customer Service Unit to no avail. Additionally, my name should have been checked against the name on the commission number which would have indicated that the commission number was issued to me (Barbara A. Ambroise) and not Ed.


    To date, I have not heard from the Notary Public Unit with regard to this matter. I would appreciate it, if you would help me with having the error corrected.


    Respectfully,


    Barbara A. Ambroise

    Are you kidding with most NJ businesses forced to be closed you are raising the tax on health care! What world do you live in! You need to wake up to the reality of the current situation in our state. We have a incompetent governor who is doing everything he can to drive businesses out of the state and you are doing everything you can to help him. Where is the opposition to this stupid shutdown who speaks for the residence of this State apparently not you or the man from Massachusetts.

    Dear John,

    My name is Joe Sanders. I am a former West Orange resident, West Point ’76 graduate, and served during your Mayoral administration as a volunteer on the Oral History Project back in 1999 where you honored veterans after your inspiring trip to Normandy. (Sorry for the run on sentence.)

    The reason for this message is to belatedly thank you for your inspiring leadership and for offering me the opportunity to serve. I have a blog site at https://colonelskernals.blog and I will soon be posting a story about my experience serving as a volunteer while you were our West Orange mayor. The story will be posted before July 4, 2020 and I hope you can read it and enjoy it!

    Best wishes to you for continued health and success!

    Dear Assemblyman McKeon – i am extremely concerned with the way Governor Murphy has addressed the needs of small business reopening in this State , i am very dissatisfied with him and MOST OF ALL the Assembly bill No. 4175 , if those gets voted in you will most likely be losing a lifelong Essex county democratic voter

    Dear Assemblyman McKeon


    I am a small business owner and while the state’s shutdown of non-essential businesses has been economically disastrous to me and my family, I applaud and support Governor Murphy’s actions because no one can put a price on our health.
    However, I am concerned that my type of business does not seem to have a place in the plans to re-open our economy.
    I am the sole proprietor of a dog training business specializing in teaching competitive dog sports. When will I be allowed to re-open?
    My classes are small; I have a maximum of six students in a class. This type of business naturally lends itself to social distancing; I teach the steps to a skill and then step back and observe and coach as each of my students follow my directions. I have a COVID-19 plan that includes social distancing, face covering requirements, disinfectant procedures and more.


    When will I be allowed to re-open? How will I know when I will be allowed to re-open?


    Thank you for your time. Please don’t let my type of business fall through the cracks.


    Best regards,


    Linda Sperco

    I am extremely concerned that what started as a medical problem will lead to an death of communities and small businesses. Additionally, the amount of depression and addiction that is being stimulated by the lack of socialization is detrimental so many of our citizens. Please start to allow people to meet in small groups, especially addiction recovery meetings and support groups. The amount of people that will die from overdose and suicide will be due to immeasurable stress that has been inflicted due to these isolation orders. PLEASE start to open up socialization for people. Require masks and social distancing, but let people socialize for their sanity. As a mother of a recovering addict I see what this is doing to people, we must have a balanced approach. This is getting to be too much. Please.

    I am a supporter of you and of the Governor, but the shut down needs to wind down. Please show us a plan for when there will be enough testing and antibody testing to start opening back up. And a plan for what can open soon. For example county parks might be something that can be opened first. You have access to more and better opinions than mine about what exactly should open first, but please show us a plan.


    I am almost certain that I contracted COVID19 on a flight from Miami to Newark several weeks before the acknowledged first case in NJ and have repeatedly been told by doctors that in NJ there is no way to get antibody testing to find out if I really had it. In NY the governor announced expansion on antibody testing. Could we get that on our side of the river please.
    Also the emergency unemployment for gig workers is taking forever with very little information on status of claims.

    Regarding Governor Murphy’s recent freeze of expenditures in the state budget, I am dismayed that the “Senior Freeze” Property Tax Reimbursement program has been included in the list of spending cuts. I am a senior citizen of limited means and found this benefit most helpful. I am hoping the decision to remove this benefit might be rescinded, and am asking for your assistance.

    Dear Legislators,


    I am contacting you to request a positive modification of the New Jersey Affordable Housing Act which was strongly suggested by Judge Mary C. Jacobson. I do not believe that my town should be forced to build High-Density Housing in Hanover Township.


    It is time to take Affordable Housing decisions out of the State Judges roll and put it back in the hands of the New Jersey State Legislature. Since the passage of the Affordable Housing Act in 1975, many things have changed, and many decisions have been quietly made without the input of New Jersey Municipalities and its citizens. One major point of the Act stated that the citizens of New Jersey would not be affected financially by this law. However, as we have all witnessed, the citizens of New Jersey have certainly been financially impacted. Another part of the Act quietly came into effect with the “Builders Remedy” allowing the developers to override the zoning of virtually every municipality in New Jersey. The developer could build 20% affordable housing units, as small as a one-bedroom apartment, and then build 80% market-rate homes. This too greatly affected the taxpayers of New Jersey through an increase in the need for more public schools, teachers, school administrators, school maintenance costs, public works employees, fire, and police. Another important impact was the fact that many municipalities did not have the appropriate infrastructure that included critical public water and sewer systems. Municipalities without appropriate infrastructure were forced to negotiate with other municipalities for these items which also greatly increased the financial costs to the New Jersey taxpayers.


    We agree that there should be an Affordable Housing Act in New Jersey. We also feel that in order to do this the New Jersey State Legislature should work very closely with each of the 565

    municipalities in New Jersey and organizations such as Citizens Improving Affordable Housing to make this advantageous to all citizens of New Jersey.


    Please respond to me about how you plan to address these issues. The following dormant bills would improve the Affordable Housing. Bills A5137, A1650/ACR79, A4333, ACR188, and A1648 must be moved forward in the New Jersey State Legislature. The persons who have initiated these bills will certainly agree to work with other political parties to make it acceptable to all.


    I look forward to your response as soon as possible.


    Sincerely,

    I hope that you both realize that the League of Humane Voters of NJ not only endorses you both because of your strong support for animal protective legislation, but notes that Extraordinary legislators (a designation which they also apply to you both!) are listed in bold type!

    Your votes mean a lot and people do care and vote accordingly. I’ll be going to the polls on Tuesday and am proud to be voting for, and represented by you.

    With thanks,

    What is your position on the Constitutional Amendment to give veterans tax benefits to vets living in continuing care facilities?

    Would this reduce the cost for these veterans or only benefit the facility?

    If favorable, can’t this be done via legislation instead of a Constitutional Amendment?

    Thank you so much for sending a letter to remind me of the Senior Tax Freeze program. Although I did not qualify in past years, I decided to look at the eligibility requirements again this year. I was happy to see that the income limit has been raised, so now I will be freezing my taxes. Every little bit helps us retired teachers! My friends who live in different districts said that they did not get a letter from their assemblymen. I have always felt that you and Assemblywoman Jasey really look out for your constituents and here is more proof. Thank you again!

    Hello Assemblyman McKeon,
    I saw that you are not in favor of the New Jersey tax on those making over 1 million dollars a year. I am asking you to please support this tax. Our state needs revenue to pay for infrastructure, schools, and property tax relief. I don’t understand why you are backpedaling. If you still supports it, please bring it up as a single issue bill and be the legislator we know and need you to be.

    Please do anything you can to move the bills “up the ladder” A4520/A4814 concerning the NJ rental Tax…I have been renting to the same tenant for 20 years. It is so unfair for me have him to go to a realtor and pay a commission or for me to pay the tax and then charge him. Having the Governor sign the bill (combined with the Senate bills) before the summer season would be great !!
