    Assemblyman McKeon,

    I am writing to you as an educator and a school librarian. I am asking you to support Bill A4500 that was introduced in the NJ Legislature in January. It would require certain ratios of school library media specialists to students in public schools. In this age of information overload, media specialists have been specially trained to teach students how to find, evaluate and use information ethically and responsibly. Additionally, with so much technology in children’s lives, a librarian who is connected to the students in his/her school can be the person to place that one book in the hands of a child that lights the reading spark.

    Thank you.

    Hi, I am Herb Schwartz’s widow. Herb was the wonderful artist, teacher, Artist on the Lawn n Poster artist for The White House during the Clinton administration. He created the West Orange cows,; Yogi Berra cow, Washington Red Skins cow n NJ Devils cow. U honored him at the Manor during ur State of the Union address as “the secret jewel of NJ”. Herb also did the egg representing the State of NJ depicting Thomas Edison’s inventions, which is in the White House archives. He taught public school in Caldwell for 31 yrs n raised over $1,000,000 for charities. He ran an art school for 13 yrs in Caldwell n had a non profit that taught art n art history in the schools.

    Herb passed away five yrs ago on Xmas morning n the loss is terrible. We have been living in West Orange for over thirty yrs. I am moving the end of March. During the last few wks of his life, he said he would like to have a retrospective of his work. He is still loved by so many n touched the lives of children that have gone on successfully in the world of art. I would like to donate a piece of his artwork n possibly honor his memory w a show. It would be shameful to pack up his works of art n let him be forgotten. I can be reached by phone/text 973-493-8644 or I would be happy to email u pictures of his work n accomplishments. Thanks for reading this n all ur good work in government during this most difficult time! Tal Schwartz

    You want to make it so all future candidates running for President and Vide president have to release their tax returns, if you do that you must make it for all elected officials in the State of NJ, you can not discriminate against 2 people running for national office. Get your act together and find a way to lower NJ taxes and stop wasting time on this frivolous crap.

    Good morning,

    I’d like to know how much in campaign contributions Mr. McKeon received from bail bond companies? Since he attempted to roll back reforms in bail, I’m assuming he received money from them. Could you please explain this? I will be spreading the news of your proposed bill to Essex County voters.

    Thank you

    Dear Assemblyman McKeon,

    I’m concerned about an editorial I read in this morning’s Star-Ledger regarding the posting of legal advertisements on local government web sites. Now, more than ever, we need newspapers and a strong press to be watch dogs for the citizenry. Many newspapers will have to pull back if they lose this revenue.

    Furthermore, there continue to be many people who do not have access to the internet – the old and the poor- and depend on newspapers for their information. The bill will deprive these people of their ability to access information they have a right to.

    Please do what you can to stop the passing of this bill. Thank you.

    Disappointed that you voted YES to the gas hike. It’s sad that Democrats say they are for the middle class but would vote for an increase that would hurt so many middle class working people. This was not a fair compromise and you should have pushed back on Cristie for a fairer compromise. The only people this bill benefits are the wealthy and the poor.

    There can be no legitimate justification for some NJ schools to receive as much as $33,699 per pupil from the state. Where is the oversight, who accounts for these expenditures? This is a biased and obviously failed practice. There must be corruption/kickbacks involved since the funding isn’t connected to results! Stop this unjust and unfair waste of our tax money.

    Hey John,

    I’m Effie from Perspectivo, a startup with a new concept. I was intrigued by your online content and thought you might be interested in checking us out before everyone else does.

    At Perspectivo you’ll find goals with networks of people around these goals. A goal can be anything you need or want to do, from starting a new online business to planning the perfect first date. When you pick a goal you encounter insights from people who have “been there” and you’ll instantly have access to new people who want to do this goal, are doing it or have already done it. You can easily learn what you and they have in common and connect.

    I assume that you have a lot on your plate and time is short, I feel that way everyday… but that’s why Perspectivo is so great – you don’t need to invest time or make an effort to build a network that means to you. We do that for you!

    You can also benefit from adding insights because every time you add an insight to a goal, you can link to your own online content. It’s a great way for you to add a link to your content in a place where people who really need it can use it. But equally important is the fact that you will help others who will put your experience to good use.

    I invite you to be a part of something meaningful. Check us out at

    Good Afternoon Assemblyman McKeon,

    I heard that A3876 was introduced in the Assembly about a week ago that would change the age for casino gambling to 18. I was wondering if you could help with this as it seems absurd that an adult of this age can serve in the armed forces and yet not be able to participate in a game of blackjack. California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Minnesota, Oklahoma, New York, Michigan, and Rhode Island have all done this. I also have here three links that appear to explain that senior citizens seem to have higher problem gambling rates than other segments of the population including young people. These take place in Canada where the age is 19 and in Rhode Island where the age is 18. This could serve as evidence against those who are concerned about problem gambling.

    I also found this online. According to this poll, an overwhelming majority of 91% think that it should be 18. Have a great day!😊😊😊👍👍👍

    Have a great day!!!😊😊😊

    I would like for New Jersey to pass the Companion Animal Protection Act or similar legislation.

    Would Assemblyman McKeon introduce this legislation to the Assembly and work actively to get it passed?

    John: several weeks ago I contacted you and asked if you would look into the long delay that the NJ State Board of Architects takes to investigate illegal practice of the profession. I have been told that this is a budget problem and since the Gov. is busy running for President and has no intention of raising taxes to fund regulating Boards, I am asking you to look into this not on my behalf, but on the behalf of over 7 million NJ Consumers.

    I received today from the NJ State Board of Architects (after 18 months) a Consent Order of suspension of License and a large fine issued to Albert Birch, Jr., RA who had signed and sealed drawings that were prepared by a Mr. Claude Jones who is not an architect. In fact the drawings that he prepared were incomplete and done so poorly that had the project been approved and gone ahead, most certainly there would have been a building collapse. After the drawings were deemed complete by the Zoning Officer, Mr. Jones then appeared before the West Orange ZBA, to offer up testimony on behalf of his client. He lied under oath that he was an architect since 1976 with a so called limited practice in several urban communities east and south of WO. The ZBA did not approve the project based on the fact that the Chairwoman at the time was suspicious of Mr. Jones’ credentials.

    Please look into why the NJ State Board of Architects took 18 months to investigate this case. There is something (besides just budget concerns) as to why

    a clear black and white issue of illegal practice that this was took as long as it did to be resolved.

    If you or one of your assistants need to reach me, I can be contacted on my cell at (973) 902-4900 or by E-mail at

    Thank you

    As a small business owner who has seen expenses rise, margins shrink and regulations skyrocket, I urge you not to pass the Sick Leave Mandate A-2354. My partner and I already sometimes skip paying ourselves and haven’t given ourselves a raise in about 8 years. Small business owners do not have the cash flow to afford another 9 days of pay without work for employees. Most are struggling to survive and this bill would result in many more going on unemployment as businesses close.

    Food Stamp (SNAP) Challenge feedback. 1) SNAP is supplemental – not meant to be the only purchasing source for food so $4.20 a day is testing the limits of reason. 2) Coffee is not a nutritional requirement, nor are tobacco products, liquor, beer, cell phones, cable TV, internet, etc. 3) Did you use coupons when making your purchases? 4) Taking a JOB, even part time, would provide you with more buying power, If in the food industry, you might qualify for a meal as well. 5) BEFORE you have children, you need to consider whether you can feed, shelter, and clothe them 6) You need to plan and save for your future self, not depend on the GOVERNMENT. 7) If GOVERNMENT taxes it’s working citizens less perhaps there would be more private sector jobs, money to donate to charity organizations – of my choice – and community support for the less fortunate. 8) Government has no money, does not create wealth or jobs, IT must TAKE that WEALTH from the Private Sector, thus depriving the private sector of resources needed to CREATE Wealth! Well intentions GOVERNMENT programs like this never fix the root cause of the problem. Examples – The War on Poverty, The War on Crime, The War on Drugs, The War on Hunger… GOVERNMENT can not fix these things and never will, so stop trying to find ways to spend other people’s money please.
