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 Toms River this morning.
Hugin and the group of young professional discussed taxes, job opportunities, and the high cost of living, which has driven millennials out of New Jersey at the highest rate in the nation.
“After car insurance, student loans, and other expenses, there’s not much left over to save for the future,” said David Scalese a licensed real estate agent with Keller Williams Realty. “If New Jersey continues to raise taxes, I’m not sure anyone will be able to afford to stay in this state and actually build a life.”
“Young professionals and millennials are the future of our state, which is why we need to consider the impact New Jersey’s high taxes and cost of living have on their ability to build productive lives,” said U.S. Senate candidate Bob Hugin. “I’m proud to have grown up in New Jersey and my wife Kathy and I wouldn’t have raised our kids any place else, but if we don’t address the affordability crisis facing our state, young professionals won’t have a choice but to look elsewhere.”
Hugin’s affordability tour will continue later today in Bayville where he will be meeting with seniors and tomorrow 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 to challenge incumbent Senator Bob Menendez. For more information visit bobhugin.com.
