An ongoing discussion about conservatism in New Jersey.
Is there a mandate
Alan J. Steinberg  (November 4, 2009, 7:10 pm)

The message from the electorate is very ambiguous. It is the same age old conflict of wanting reduced taxes yet wishing to retain the products and services that high taxes obtain.

By electing Chris Christie, the electorate was sending a message that there is widespread discontent with high state income taxes and local property taxes. Yet simultaneously, the electorate was approving an open space bond act which will add expenditure to future budgets, potentially resulting in the same higher taxes the citizenry wish to avoid.
