Issues

Campaign themes

In an interview with the Gloucester County Times, Levins listed his top priorities:

  • "Help our small businesses grow successful and put our unemployed residents back on the job. Lower government spending, eliminate waste in our state agencies and maximize shared services to reduce property taxes. Use saved tax dollars to pay for critical public obligations like education, infrastructure, public safety and debt reduction. Prospering businesses hire new employees and extra tax revenues from both add to our state’s treasury, allowing New Jersey to fulfill public obligations without raising taxes." [1]
