Schundler Radio Ad Focuses on Tax Relief
Spot says Schundler has The
Courage to Reduce Taxes
ORANGE, APRIL 4) – As the deadline for filing state income taxes
approaches, Jersey City Mayor Bret Schundler is hitting the airwaves
with his latest radio advertisement – one that addresses his
commitment to reduce the tax burden on New Jersey families.
60-second radio advertisement contrasts his commitment to lower taxes
for New Jersey families with DiFrancesco’s inaction on the
issue. It is airing statewide and in the Philadelphia and New York media
can lower your income and your property taxes – we can lower those
darn toll taxes – if a leader would just have the courage to fight for
that,” Schundler says in the advertisement.
ad also details Schundler’s record of success in Jersey City –
something he accomplished while holding the line on taxes. As mayor of
Jersey City Schundler has cut taxes three times and over his eight years
in office he has held increases in the city’s total tax levy below the
rate of inflation despite significant reductions in state aid.
contrast, property taxes statewide have continued to soar during
DiFrancesco’s tenure as Senate President, and the percentage of income
that residents pay to the state through income taxes has also increased
as a result of bracket creep.
following is the text of the radio spot:
Schundler for Governor “The Courage To Cut Taxes”
DiFrancesco has been in the State Senate for 25 years . . .
controlled Trenton for the last ten . . .
in all those years, our property taxes have skyrocketed out of control,
and he’s done nothing to stop it . . .
will take courage to cut taxes – it will take Bret Schundler . .
“We can lower your income taxes and your property taxes – we can
lower those darn tolls – if a leader would just have the courage to
fight for that.”
He got rid of corruption in City Hall, he cut
taxes, created hundreds of thousands of new jobs, and built great new
schools without costing taxpayer’s one dollar . . .
Bret will beat the Trenton political machine.
Governor, he’ll stand up to the special interests and he’ll cut
property taxes, income taxes, and toll taxes, because Bret Schundler has
the courage to lead . . .
and win . . .
