For workers: If you lost your job during the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal government has let you down. Now it’s time for the people of Morris county to pick up the slack. No one should be forced to use a food bank in the best of times, but now that people are relying on these services more than ever, we can’t drop the ball. It is up to us to provide groceries, necessities, and direct relief to anyone out of work through no fault of their own.
Looking after our front line workers: Our doctors, nurses, and staff at Morristown Memorial and St. Clare’s are heroes. But, it’s not enough to just say that they should be rewarded. We need to put our money where our mouths are. That means directing funds towards supporting these brave men and woman. Cutting the budget is no way to say thank you.
For Tenants: I prioritize people over property companies, and workers over developers any day. We’re in the middle of a global pandemic, and you shouldn’t be worried about your rent, you should be focused on taking care of yourself and your loved ones.
For small businesses: No entrepreneur should have to choose between the health of their employees and shutting down. Safety is the priority. Our county government must prioritize small businesses and working people over big corporations and interests, and that’s what we’re going to do. We need a bi-partisan, cross government approach that will get relief to the businesses hit hardest by this crisis, not the ones with the most money to burn.
