Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-Wyckoff) continued his campaign against moocher states on Saturday, encouraging first responders to claw back federal tax dollars by seeking federal funding, like the Assistance to Firefighters Grant.

The two-term congressman visited the newly-built Newton Firehouse No. 2 station, along with Mayor Sandra Diglio and local officials.

“The Newton Fire Department does an incredible job keeping the community safe and, with this beautiful new station, our brave first responders are going to be able to serve the people of Newton even better,” Gottheimer said.  “I want to thank Mayor Diglio, Fire Chief  (Scott) Verkon, Lieutenant (Jason) Mill, and all our first responders for all they do for our community.”

Gottheimer pledged to continue to “focus on ensuring North Jersey’s first responder and law enforcement departments get the equipment and resources they need to keep them and us safe during emergencies — and to help our communities cut local property taxes.”
