Peters implores Addiego to vote against borrowing bill

By Nikita Biryukov, July 14 2020 10:24 am

Assemblyman Ryan Peters (R-Hainesport) called on his former runningmate, State Sen. Dawn Addiego (D-Evesham) to vote against a borrowing bill coming before the Senate Budget Committee Tuesday.

“In the 8th Legislative District, Assemblywoman Jean Stanfield and I will stand with the taxpayers and vote against this bill that will undoubtedly lead to high property tax increases. I demand 8th District Senator Dawn Marie Addiego stand with taxpayers as well,” he said. “This is a politician that spent her entire career talking about lower property taxes. It will be a very telling vote for her today on the Budget Committee. Anything but a no is a direct attack on all taxpayers in New Jersey.”

Addiego was elected as a Republican but defected to the Democratic Party last January.

Since then, she has kept a relatively moderate voting record that is unlikely to offend voters in the moderate eighth legislative district.

The bonding bill would authorize the state to borrow up to $10 billion to plug budget holes caused by the pandemic, though each instance of borrowing will have to be approved by a panel chosen by Democratic legislative leaders.
