Campaign themes


Lazare's campaign website highlighted the following campaign themes:[3]

  • Education:
Excerpt: "Jill LaZare believes that in order to give each child the best possible education, New Jersey needs to increase school choice for parents with children trapped in failing schools. However, Jill understands that education funding is multifaceted, and believes now is the time for Trenton to study alternative revenue streams, as well as tax providing credits for military families, and scholarships targeted for parents with special needs children."

  • Property Taxes:
Excerpt: "Jill understands that approaching our property tax crisis demands new approaches like shared services, locally imposed taxes dedicated property tax relief, and capping user fees, which further squeeze New Jersey families."
