CNB Political News: Claire Gustafson Campaign Signs

I’m Claire Gustafson, I was the Republican Party’s 2020 nominee for Congress in New Jersey’s First District. I’m proud of our race against the political cartel that rules South Jersey. With the help of the greatest volunteers any campaign has ever had we earned more votes than any Republican to run in New Jersey’s First Congressional District. We outperformed President Trump and our party’s nominee for US Senate. We earned the votes of more than 45,000 voters who are not registered Republicans. These are just a few reasons I have decided to run for Congress again in 2022. Unfortunately, South Jersey is ruled by a powerful political cartel. Our congressman is part of the cartel. When your big brother is the political boss, you do as you are told. Perhaps that is why Donald Norcross, by his own admission, as state Senator, led the charge on getting the Economic Opportunity...

Who Pays the Most in School Taxes, Gloucester City Residents or Haddonfield Residents?

GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (CNBNewsnet) released a study that explains how much taxpayers in each city pay to fund their schools. For example, the stats show that Gloucester City residents are paying 10 percent in local taxes to support the school district's spending plan, which totals $65,756,263. In the nearby affluent community of Haddonfield, residents pay 75.3% of the $54,701,722 total spending. Gloucester City school taxes are much lower than most communities because it is one of 31 "Abbott districts" in the state, which is now referred to as SDA Districts because the Schools Development Authority supervises them. Since the original ruling in 1985, New Jersey increased spending such that Abbott district students received 22% more per pupil (at $20,859) vs. non-Abbott districts (at $17,051) in 2011.[3] 60% of New Jersey's education aid goes to the Abbotts.[4 According to DATA USA, the population in Gloucester City in 2019 was 11,248; the...
