The place where Chris Christie did his Townhall was packed so I didn't go to it (lots of security). I received an e-mail from his office and was able to listen to his plans on a flash movie. Money that was supposed to be for schools went to just a few, and left the other schools out. Governor Christie pointed out how our property taxes have been going up for 30 years. He's found corruption in the state financials that need to be changed. A lot of money went to the Municiples instead of students and home owners. Essentially he found corruption in the New Jersey system. The plan he described would help us steadily lower our property taxes each year and also ensure all students get a good education, and can fulfill their dreams. I liked his consideration for the kid's dreams.
Hoping we won't have the highest taxes in the USA for long. I'm also hoping we can get another good governor after ours leaves office in a few months. I'm grateful for his ability to speak his mind and think he's done a great job! Like all politics we'll never all think alike. Maybe that's how our Founding Fathers wanted it to be. So lots of people can contribute.
It's called, "The Fairness Formula"

As far as this blog goes, I'm still deciding what I want to do with it.
