Americans are hurting. Unemployment is rising. We need leaders who care about the challenges we face as a country, and not about winning their next election. That's why I was troubled to read about your objection to a resolution that I supported, which would allow voters to decide whether our state judges should pay the same amount as other state employees toward their health and pension benefits. This resolution would save our State a lot of money that could go towards other worthwhile investments like improving education and protecting our environment. New Jerseryans deserve an explanation as to why you oppose such a commonsense reform. On behalf of all of them I will ask you, Why? We await your response.
