District 38 was one of only three districts that the ''Asbury Park Press'' identified as competitive in 2011. The other two were Districts 2 and 14. Districts 2 and 38 may lean more Republican after [[Redistricting in New Jersey|2011 redistricting]], and District 14 could still favor Democrats. As evidence, they cited a drop in registered Democrats in Districts 2 and 38, and only a small decrease in registered Democrats in District 14. History has shown, argued ''APP'', that districts where Democrats hold less than a 10,000 registered voter advantage typically favor the GOP. The Democratic registration advantage in District 38 is roughly 12,000, (down from 22,000).<ref>[http://www.app.com/article/20110925/NJOPINION06/309250012/Race-for-Legislature-is-on ''Asbury Park Press,'' "Race for Legislature is on," September 23, 2011]</ref>

Issues

  • A1068 Requires NJT to purchase alternative fuel vehicles.
  • A1325 Requires labeling of food containing any product from a cloned animal or its progeny.
  • A2362 The "Animal Cruelty Recodification and Modernization Act."

Pensions

Double dipping is a term used to describe the practice of allowing government employees to “retire,” start collecting a pension and then return to work for the state while continuing to receive pension benefits. It is currently permitted in New Jersey. Banning or limiting double dipping is among the proposals in New Jersey to reduce the state pension obligation. Two companion bills, S601 and A860, were introduced in the 2012-2013 legislative session. As of August 2014 neither has reached the floor for a vote. In July 2013 New Jersey Watchdog published an article focusing on double dipping by New Jersey state legislators. The report identified 18 state lawmakers who receive retirement checks totaling $782,000 a year in addition to their legislative salaries. The roster includes leaders of each party in both the Senate and Assembly.[5]
Wagner was included on the list of legislators currently receiving pension benefits and a legislative salary. According to the 2013 report, Wagner receives a $46,368 pension per year. The employer at retirement was Paramus Board of Education.[5]

Speculation

Asbury Park Press

District 38 was one of only three districts that the Asbury Park Press identified as competitive in 2011. The other two were Districts 2 and 14. Districts 2 and 38 may lean more Republican after 2011 redistricting, and District 14 could still favor Democrats. As evidence, they cited a drop in registered Democrats in Districts 2 and 38, and only a small decrease in registered Democrats in District 14. History has shown, argued APP, that districts where Democrats hold less than a 10,000 registered voter advantage typically favor the GOP. The Democratic registration advantage in District 38 is roughly 12,000, (down from 22,000).[8]
