National Political Awareness Test

Rumpf's answers to the New Jersey State Legislative Election 2007 National Political Awareness Test are available. In the test, he lists his top priorities:

We are strongly committed to reforming New Jersey's system of property taxation. One of the most direct methods toward achieving this goal would be to reduce state spending and take a more fiscally responsible approach to the use of taxpayer dollars. Furthermore, stronger ethic reform measures must be instituted such as closing loopholes within existing law to end the practice of using government contracts to obtain campaign contributions, more commonly known as "pay-to-play." Additionally, stronger sentences must be established for corrupt politicians who misplace the public trust.[9]
