Campaign themes

Beckelman's website lists the following issues:

  • "Help Create an Environment for 5% Economic Growth per year in New Jersey through more incentives to start-ups and entrepreneurs, as well as simplifying regulations for small business. New Jersey's economy only averaged 1% growth from 2004-09 which stagnated wage and job growth. The Governor needs more pro-growth legislators to assist in the New Jersey comeback."
  • "Reduce the Sales Tax back to 6%. Governor Corzine was wrong to raise the sales tax and we need to give consumers more incentive to spend."
  • "Support Elections for Supreme Court Judges. Judges often do not follow the spirit of the law or the will of the people and they need to be held accountable."
  • "Expand School Choice and Charter Schools. We need to educate our children for the 21st Century, with more specializations in technology and international culture, which our current public schools are lagging in. Jersey City parents should not have to move for children to get an affordable, quality education."
