StayNJ: “StayNJ is a historic tax relief program that will deliver much-needed financial relief to New Jersey seniors and their families. This program will cut property taxes for seniors by 50% and allow seniors to retire in New Jersey, within the communities they built for us.” 

ANCHOR: “There are far too many New Jersey residents still struggling to make ends meet in the aftermath of the worst days of the COVID 19 pandemic. The ANCHOR program promises timely relief to millions of homeowners and renters, putting money back into their pockets, and helping to keep our state affordable, and our economy strong and competitive in both the near- and short-term”

StayNJ: “The cost of living in New Jersey is high, we all know that. But our seniors deserve the chance to live comfortably near family and friends, and that’s what StayNJ will help them do. This legislation will significantly ease financial burdens and make day-to-day life more affordable for seniors and their families – providing up to $6,500 in tax credits to seniors across this state.”

ANCHOR: “Helping people keep up with their bills and giving them more breathing room has never been more important than it is right now. Two billion dollars in direct property tax relief to New Jersey residents is monumental. Taxpayers will see the impact of this kind of investment on their property tax bill and in their wallets.”

StayNJ: “I am proud to be running with two public servants who worked tirelessly to get StayNJ passed. As my parents age, I too am worried about the rising cost of living and their ability to stay afloat. I am grateful to the legislature for this action, and I am ready to continue the work to lower costs for families across this state when elected this November to the New Jersey General Assembly.” 

ANCHOR: “I am proud of the work our legislators have done to fight to lower costs for families through the ANCHOR Program – the largest property tax relief program in NJ state history. When elected this November, I will fight hard as your Assemblywoman to build on that work in Trenton.”
