MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ — The Hugin for Senate campaign continued a statewide tour of roundtable events to discuss the affordability crisis gripping New Jersey and the impact of the proposed state budgets in Bayville yesterday afternoon.

Speaking to a group of seniors, Hugin discussed New Jersey’s high taxes and high cost of living, which have driven seniors and retirees to states like Florida, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina.

“I’ve lived in New Jersey my whole life, but when you’re a retiree living on a fixed income and the cost of living just keeps going up, you have to make a choice about whether you can afford to stay here,” said Berkeley resident Mike Hale. “Many of my friends and family members made the choice to move to states with lower taxes and a lower cost of living.”

“For seniors and retirees living on fixed incomes, the high tax burden and the high cost of living in New Jersey make it unaffordable to stay here,” said U.S. Senate candidate Bob Hugin. “We need policies that not only support a strong job market and make it affordable for people to build their lives here, but also ones that allow people to retire here as well.”

Hugin’s affordability tour continues today in Mercer County.

Bob Hugin, a Marine Corps Veteran and business leader who has created thousands of New Jersey jobs, is running for U.S. Senate against incumbent Senator Bob Menendez. For more information visit bobhugin.com.
