Tax Reform Update – Our Voices Were Heard! – NJ Rep. Chris Smith Voted No On The Tax Bill

Our efforts have paid off! Although the bill passed The House, we were able to convince NJ Republican Senator Chris Smith to Vote NO on the tax bill introduced by The Ways and Means Chairman, Rep. Kevin Brady. This sends a clear sign to other elected officials of NY and NJ. This proves that communicating our needs can impact how our elected officials vote. Let’s keep the pressure on.

Here is what I am writing to them.

Dear (elected official name), please make it known that you will oppose any legislation that attempts to remove the state income tax and real estate tax deductions. These changes will dramatically and negatively impact our families, many who are already struggling financially, and all of whom are voters. 

Here is the official letter Rep. Smith sent to my office.
