Dear Mr. Norcross,

As we continue to fight back against the COVID-19 outbreak and do our part in flattening the curve by social-distancing, we must not neglect our small businesses. Small businesses employ and support countless families and play a crucial role in the economic, social and cultural fabric of our community. We must do everything we can to help them get through this difficult time and back on their feet once we have weathered this storm. Answering Your Questions Earlier today, I went live on Facebook with the New Jersey Small Business Administration District Director Alfred Titone, the Southern New Jersey Development... Read more →


Letters to the Editor: Lambertville's City Council Sets The Record Straight

A recent press release by the Sierra Club of NJ regarding the City of Lambertville included a number of serious inaccuracies that called into question the trustworthiness of the administration and City Council. We are endeavoring to correct the record by laying out the facts below. To say we are using the pandemic emergency as a way to expedite any plan or process is simply not true. Here are the facts: (1) Lambertville City Council is scheduled to consider a resolution endorsing an amended affordable housing settlement agreement with Fair Share Housing at its April 23rd meeting after the resolution...

Letters to the Editor: Love and Gratitude

Dear Colleague and Friend, We’re facing challenging times right now — every single one of us. And our industry is being greatly impacted. But in these toughest of times, we also recognize that we have a lot to be grateful for – including the people who will lead us to the brighter days ahead. GIVING THANKS “Last week, I asked VISIT PHILADELPHIA to develop a series of public service announcements, on behalf of our city, to thank the extraordinary Philadelphians on the front lines of this pandemic — the men and women working hard every day to heal, protect and...

Seniors Beat Up Line Jumper

I was in a long line at 7:45 AM today at the grocery store that opened at 8 AM for seniors only. A young man came from the parking lot and tried to cut in at the front of the line, but an old lady beat him back into the parking lot with her cane. He returned and tried to cut in again but an old man punched him in the gut, then kicked him to the ground and rolled him away. As he approached the line for the 3rd time he said, "If you don't let me unlock the... Read more →

Guest Opinion: Let's Not Panic

Well, I'd have to say that 2020 is off to a hell of a start. From giant fires ravaging the country of Australia, the death of NBA icon Kobe Bryant, the Coronavirus, stock market volatility and of all things, Prince Harry wants out of the royal family! Here's what I know; I'm grateful for today and I'll take it as it comes. I'm not going to play into the fear-mongering on social media when it comes to stock market declines or Coronavirus. My solution is pretty simple; diversify, buy real estate for cash flow, wash my hands frequently and keep... Read more →


Dear Parents and Friends of Gloucester Catholic:

Your Voice Matters to the Future of Catholic Schools! Attached please find the first two ACTION ALERTS for the Governor's 2020-2021 state budget. The nonpublic school community has two major "ASKS" this budget season. They are: 1. To increase the per pupil allotment for Compensatory Ed (Chapter 192) from $995.00 per service to $1100.00 per service. This allotment has not been increased in over 10 years. 2. To increase the per pupil allotment for transportation/aid in lieu from $1000.00 to $1050.00. Although the increase to $1000 two years ago was a big help, there are still many students not receiving... Read more →


Letters to the Editor: Luck of NJ Lottery Retailers May Be Running Out

The new Jack pocket lottery app allowing consumers to purchase tickets on their phones isn’t a win for everyone. With the app’s availability, the luck of New Jersey’s lottery retailers may be running out. The NJ lottery helps almost 7,500 lottery retailers keep their small businesses afloat. Responsible for $189 million in lottery ticket sales commissions for retail chains and many small family-owned businesses across the state, the survival of these retailers is heavily dependent on lottery income. On average, stores receive $25,600 in commissions annually and for many who already running on tight margins, that income means the difference... Read more →


Stealing California from Bernie — again?

by Greg Palast My dear Californians, I know you filled out that registration form at the DMV. Well, you know what? I’ll bet you that your name is not going to be there because there’s a 45% chance in California when you sign up to register to vote on a piece of paper, your name is never entered on the voter rolls. Guess what? California has one of the worst voting systems in the entire nation. I checked out my own registration. I took my own advice. I went to the office of the Secretary of State. I typed in...

Letters to the Editor: The State of Our Union Can Start with School Lunch

Tomorrow President Trump will deliver his State of the Union address in front of Congress, outlining his policy priorities and executive vision for the country. Over the past three years, President Trump has spoken to a domestic agenda focusing on health care, education, farmers and the working class. It’s worth recognizing, however, that his Administration’s proposals have failed to meet, and many times even undermined the health, education, and well-being of our nation’s families and children. At FoodCorps, we believe that a healthy, prosperous future relies on a strong education system -- and that the students that education system serves... Read more →


Letter of Disappointment To Jersey City Council From Jersey City Educator

January 11, 2020, 8:52 am | in Franky Maldonado – McNair Educator JCEA – 1600 Kennedy Blvd. Jersey City NJ 07305 I am writing this email as a taxpayer, voter, educator, and parent. When Mayor Fulop announced that he was presenting a resolution for a Mayor-Appointed School Board, I immediately thought of Mayor Frank Hague’s consolidation of power in Jersey City from 1917-1947. As Mayor of Jersey City, Mayor Hague created a system of political patronage and cronyism, turning Jersey City into a “Nefarious Political Machine.” According to a NJ historian, “you couldn’t attain any job in that city unless...

NJBIA Calls for Re-authorization of Tax Incentive Program in Support of Film Credit Expansion Bill

The New Jersey Business & Industry Association testified in support of a bill that extends the film tax credit, while calling for the urgent need to re-authorize a comprehensive tax incentive program. New Jersey has been without a tax incentive program, a fundamental tool in most states' economic development strategies, since July 1. NJBIA Vice President of Government Affairs Chris Emigholz said that bill S-3842 (Weinberg, D-37; Sarlo, D-36), which was released by the Senate and Budget Appropriations Committee today, could ultimately be included in a broader tax incentive program. "It has now been more than half a year that... Read more →


Letters to the Editor: A new DECADE of possibilities

John F. Kennedy once said “We choose to go to the moon in this decade!” So We the People stepped up — and we went to the moon. Ronald Reagan once said “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction!” So We the People stepped up — and freedom rang throughout our nation. Donald Trump once said “Let’s Make America Great Again!” And once again, We the People are stepping up. 2020 marks the beginning of a new decade of American ingenuity, progress and innovation. As we move forward into the new year together, I hope you will... Read more →


Letters to the Editor: Proud to be a Republican

I'm Jeff Van Drew. I met with President Trump last week in the Oval Office; and with his blessing and endorsement, I'm proud to say that I'm now a member of the Republican Party representing South Jersey in Congress. Since my announcement, a ton of folks have asked, "Why did you leave the Democratic Party?" My answer is simple: "I didn't leave the Democrats, the Democrats left me." You see, I've always been for fiscal responsibility and supported things like our right to bear arms. And in today's Democratic Party, which is dominated by self-proclaimed socialists, I was ostracized. When... Read more →


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: The Coup against the President Continues

The Impeachment Vote Farce As I told the press today in a statement, the Judiciary Committee’s vote on the articles of impeachment was both a tragedy and a farce. Truly, it was a sad day for America because a grave injustice was committed. There is no abuse of power by President Trump, however, it is clear that abuses were committed against him by the DOJ, the State Department, the FISA court, and certainly by Democrats in the House. This impeachment scam was corruptly formed and is being corruptly pursued. A coup cabal has hijacked the House to violate the rights... Read more →


Letters to the Editor: Sestak Drops Out of Presidential Race

I want to thank you for the honor of running for President of the United States of America. It has been an endeavor filled with immeasurable wisdom, passions, humor and insights to, and from, the people of America. I have “lived America” … and will cherish every moment, whether a veteran from a maximum security penitentiary calling to say, “Hey, Joe, the guys have heard you’re running for President, and they want you to know they’re going to organize Philadelphia for you,” or the tears of a transgender youth as she quietly told me she just wants what everybody else...

Letters to the Editor: The Speed Kills Myth is Alive & Well in Pennsylvania

Sadly, the speed kills myth is alive and well in Pennsylvania. A real 25-state analysis was done of NHTSA data, which showed that 1.6% of crashes are caused by excessive speed. Barely above zero, then. Nowhere does anyone ever put into a bill that speed limits must be posted at the 85th percentile free-flowing traffic speed. This is so that the ticket industry can thrive. Set the limits too low, ticket barely above them, get municipal radar and speed cameras, then watch the money flow in. Since this is still not enough, the state now wants more LIDAR and moving...

Top 3 Plagiarism Checkers on the internet for every writer

Prepostseo Check-plagiarism Search Engine Reports Gloucestercitynews.net (Nov. 19, 2019)--Nobody would deny the importance of written content in every walk of life. In academics, students need to submit written assignments to get good grades. Educators also need to create academic notes for the assistance of their students. Written content has contributed a lot to the success of e-commerce, blog websites, and the internet as a whole. High-quality content would definitely help in the improvement of business and careers. But, duplicated content from various sources can actually reverse this effect. This could be really harmful and become a roadblock in the success... Read more →


Letters to the Editor: Which phony progressive won’t speak out on gag orders for women?

As reported in the Star Ledger, State Senator Loretta Weinberg bravely requested that the Administration in Trenton stop enforcing gag rule non-disclosure agreements on women that worked on the 2017 campaign, which would allow those who were sexually abused or harassed to go public with their stories. Just this past weekend, when asked if she had a stance on ending gag rules allowing women of sexual assault to be heard, the self-appointed leader of a "progressive" women's Facebook group and Trenton special interest lobbyist, Sue Altman, said the following to the Star Ledger: “And Sue Altman, of the Working Families...

NJ Advance Media Releases Provocative Article on Unknown NJ Lawsuit

Today, NJ Advance Media published columnist Steve Politi’s provocative story about an unknown New Jersey lawsuit that nearly changed amateur sports forever. John Suk was coaching a junior varsity baseball game for Bound Brook High School when he told a player to slide into third base. What happened next – a sickening “POP!” and a serious ankle fracture – set off a seven-year legal battle that culminated this spring with a surreal trial in Somerset County. All parties agreed: If Suk was found liable for the injury for making such a routine decision, it could have a dramatic impact on... Read more →


Guest Opinion: Georgetown's Pitiful Conference On Abuse

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a report released this week on a conference on clergy sexual abuse: On June 14-15, over 50 persons, most of whom were Catholic, assembled at Georgetown University for an event titled, "National Convening on Lay Leadership for a Wounded Church and Divided Nation." It was organized by the Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life, headed by John Carr and Kim Daniels. The issue before the gathering was the clergy sexual abuse scandal. A report on the proceedings was released this week. The report aptly noted that "The Church's moral credibility has... Read more →


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Let’s stand together for our 2A freedoms

As you probably know, Governor Murphy recently announced an executive orderthat bans personal self-defense insurance, and effectively attempts to blackmail private businesses including gun stores, firearm manufacturers, financial institutions, and insurance providers into standing down while he and his allies strip away our Second Amendment freedoms. His executive order will inevitably limit our ability to purchase firearms and if unchallenged, could lead to copycat legislation in other states, ultimately limiting freedom for all Americans. We are developing a plan to stop Governor Murphy’s order. Expect an update on that soon. ‌ Click here to help fight back and win a... Read more →


WE CAN FOUNDATION FUNDRAISER NOV. 2

The We Can Foundation, headed by longtime Gloucester City native George Merryfield is holding a fundraiser on Saturday, November 2 at the ICAC Club ballroom, 528 Monmouth Street, Gloucester City. The organization was founded to help the homeless and those struggling with addiction to drugs and alcohol. The money raised will be used to assist with the general cost, and specifically to get a better, more reliable vehicle, a tool so critical to their program that without one, there will be no program. Merryfield released the following prepared statement. We Can Foundation is a not-for profit charity that works in... Read more →


Senate Candidate Hirsh V. Singh on "The Radical Left"

Ever since Donald Trump took office, the radical left has been off their rockers, using the biggest media outlets they control to smear our President with fabricated stories. But even in the face of powerful opposition, outlets like Breitbart News refuse to remain silent. They work tirelessly to bring patriots like you the facts. And the fact is the Democrats are terrified. We know the truth and we're not afraid to share it. Just a few days ago, I was invited to join Breitbart's weekend radio show for an interview. What an honor! Matt Boyle (Host and Political Editor for... Read more →


Letters to the Editor: Governor Murphy Promised!

Dear Friend, You may have read how Governor Phil Murphy has been asleep at the switch on an important issue he campaigned on -- ridding New Jersey’s cities and towns of dangerous lead drinking water pipes. It’s sad to think that up to 250,000 New Jersey school children and according to Gannett New Jersey, “likely many more in recent years,” have been exposed to lead poisoning in their own schools. What’s most troubling is that the Murphy Administration, namely his NJ Department of Environmental Protection, has neglected to live up to the many promises of politician Phil Murphy. Here are...

Letter To The American Public

From: Field Office Directors, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Across the country, a national debate about current and future U.S. immigration policy is growing louder by the day. As field office directors for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), we oversee the offices that enforce immigration laws within the interior of the United States, and we want to set the record straight. ICE officers are sworn federal law enforcement officers who enforce U.S. immigration laws created by Congress to keep this country safe. As such, it greatly concerns us... Read more →


Political News: Kean for Congress

The Washington Examiner just reported that Congressman Tom Malinowski said illegal immigrants are needed to mow lawns across the Seventh District, saying, "Who do you think is mowing our beautiful lawns in Somerset County?" Do we really want to re-elect a Congressman who is this out of touch with our New Jersey values? Malinowski doubled down on his remark, responding to one member of his Seventh District audience by saying, "You're a bunch of elitists! You're not going to mow lawns." It's time we had a Congressman who not only opposes illegal immigration, but who is also not so simple-minded... Read more →


Dawn Watson's Just Sayin': I'm In Your Debt

Dawn Watson/CNBNews Contributor (Gloucestercitynews.net)--Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to speak with several debt collecting services. Most people have, at one time or another. That does not make it any less unpleasant. I’ve noticed that most debt-callers are from the Midwest or the Southern part of the USA. I suppose there’s a reason; maybe the not-so-indebted get the Midwest callers because it’s cooler and they don’t need to get as mad at you. Alternatively, the Southern callers are hot already so it’s easier for them to start off mad and stay that way. There are also a few foreign call centers... Read more →


Letters to the Editor: Mr. Trump is not the problem ...

Take Iraq. Justified as a preventive war, it embroiled us in its expanding conflict into Syria, Africa and beyond as it created the more brutal terror of ISIS. Democrats and Republicans alike who voted for that war did not understand either the complexities of the world, or that militaries can stop a problem, but they can never fix a problem. Contribute Then the same political leaders dismantled the safeguards of the one place in America where a wall is definitely needed — to keep greed out, and accountability in -- but the politicians tore that wall down also, and so...

LETTERS TO THE ED: Parole Officers Violating Civil Rights and Getting Away With It

(Gloucestercitynews.net)--Hello. I am writing to you today to bring to light a plethora of civil rights violations that are taking place in New Jersey by Parole and Probation, and they’re getting away with it constantly. Please allow me to explain below, and then decide if you would like to make this information public. Unfortunately, one of the most detested group of individuals in this state are convicted sex offenders. They are the lowest of the lowest, and are constantly overlooked. However, these people are humans, just like you and me, and they deserve the same rights that we all enjoy.... Read more →


Guest Opinion: US Senator Toomey on Philadelphia Shooting

Philadelphia, Pa. (August 16,2019) Gloucestercitynews.net - U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) released the following statement regarding the shooting in Philadelphia: "The shooter who attempted to murder brave Philadelphia police officers yesterday is a convicted felon who had no right to possess a firearm. In the coming weeks, more information will hopefully come to light on how the suspect obtained his weapons, and I have asked ATF and the Department of Justice to keep me apprised of any new information. We can do more to strengthen our gun safety laws and better protect law enforcement. When Congress reconvenes, these issues, such... Read more →


Knights of Columbus 674 Sponsoring Cornhole Tournament

Gloucester City Council 674 605 Monmouth Street Gloucester City NJ 08030 First, let me say thank you for all your support in the past. Your generous financial support not only provides you exposure and advertising, but it fuels the much-needed assistance to many charitable causes in Gloucester City and surrounding communities. Your help makes our efforts a success. As you know, the Knights are all about Charity. This year, after much discussion and research, we have decided to host a Cornhole Tournament at the Council Home in Gloucester City instead of leaving town for a golf tournament. We believe there...

Guest Opinion: The Charlottesville Lie

By Steve Cortes, CNN Political Commentator Columnist for Real Clear Politics, & Prager University Politicians lie. We all know that. That is not an indictment of all politicians—it’s simply part of the game. It’s our job, as informed citizens, to figure out the truth. And that’s where journalists and the media come in. They are supposed to help us ferret out fact from fiction. So when they get a fact wrong, that’s bad. When they get a fact wrong, know it’s wrong, and don’t correct it, that’s worse. That’s not getting a fact wrong; that’s a lie. And that’s journalistic... Read more →


CBO Report: Raising minimum wage to $15 would cost up to 3.7 million jobs

By Michael Carroll | The Center SquareJuly 2019 The Congressional Budget Office threw some cold water on efforts by congressional Democrats to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour with a prediction that such an increase would eliminate as many as 3.7 million jobs by 2025. The July CBO report came out in advance of a congressional vote on the Raise the Wage Act. An increase of the federal minimum wage from the current $7.25 to $15 per hour would lead to a loss of 1.3 million jobs in the CBO’s median estimate, but the losses could ultimately reach...

Booker Advances Reparations Bill

Yes, you read that right: A racial reparations bill that Cory Booker is sponsoring in the Senate, just moved through a key Committee in the House. In testifying on behalf of his radical measure -- which is really just another vote-buying scheme -- Booker declared that his bill would be "the beginning of an important process... to address the enduring injustices in our nation." Booker is trying to out-liberal Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and the rest of the socialist-Democrats running for President. Step 1) Talk down America. Step 2) Enact laws to take from some Americans and redistribute... Read more →


Hirsh Singh: What a Tremendous Escalator Ride

Four years ago Donald J. Trump turned an escalator ride at Trump Tower into the most remarkable political campaign in history. And every single American is better off for it. During President Trump's first two-and-half years, America has been blessed with: The lowest unemployment in over 50 years The lowest unemployment for African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Asian-Americans ever Lower taxes and reduce regulations that have unleashed growth in the American economy Ended Obamacare’s individual mandate Termination of the failed Iran Deal Termination of the disastrous Trans Pacific Partnership deal Record funding for the American military to ensure we can always enjoy...

Vice-President Mike Pence's Speech at Pennsylvania GOP Dinner was Marvelous

Dear supporters, friends, and those interested in the Republican Party of Pennsylvania: With everything that happened for the Republican Party of Pennsylvania, I can say that it doesn’t get much more exciting to be a Republican. The highlight of the week was the motivating and inspired speech by Vice President Mike Pence, who was the special guest at our 2019 State Dinner. The 2019 State Dinner was the most successful fundraiser the Republican Party of Pennsylvania has ever had and the enthusiasm of Pennsylvania Republicans to re-elect President Donald Trump and Vice President Pence was clearly evident at Thursday’s dinner....

Letters to the Editor: Thank you to our Veterans

"For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and goodwill among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home." These were some of the words spoken by President Roosevelt during his D-Day Prayer 75 years ago... an inspiration that echoes through time reminding us that the boys who went ashore at Normandy were different and that the country which sent them...

Letters to the Editor: Camden City Has Real Hope for the First Time in Decades

I was born in Camden 65 years ago and over my lifetime have watched its decline as businesses and residents fled the city. For the first time I see real hope for the city and its residents. This hope stems from public policy measures put in place to spur development and as a result, help the overall community. These measures are working; the proof is indisputable. As the region’s largest business organization, the Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey supported the Grow NJ and the Economic Redevelopment & Growth programs as they moved through the legislative process and were ultimately...

Letters to the Editor: Honor our law enforcement officers

(gloucestercitynews.net)(May 15, 2019)--Today is Peace Officers Memorial Day, a day when we pause to give thanks to law enforcement officers who have been killed or disabled in the line of duty. As veterans, we understand the courage it takes to provide security, rush into harm’s way and keep Americans safe. The sacrifices made by our law enforcement officers deserve to be honored. It’s something we owe to our brave heroes – and their families. Perhaps it is fitting that a veteran and Legionnaire – President John F. Kennedy – initiated Peace Officers Memorial Day in 1962 when he signed a... Read more →


Letter to the Editor: Support Business & Job Growth in NJ

On behalf of the New Jersey State Building and Construction Trades Council representing more than 150,000 working men and women, I am extremely concerned about the so called “Governor’s Task Force Hearing’s” on the Economic Development Authority on Thursday in Newark, and the impact it will have on our state’s ability to attract and retain businesses willing and able to make investment in our communities. The panel’s actions and the coordinated attacks in the press by the Governor’s office and its allies send an unmistakable signal that promises made today can be the source of an attack tomorrow. What business... Read more →


Archbishop Chas J. Chaput, Regarding Harassment of Prayerful Protestors

OUTSIDE PLANNED PARENTHOOD CLINIC “Over the past few days, videos have gone viral on social media featuring State Representative Brian Sims aggressively harassing young and elderly women who were peacefully praying outside of a Planned Parenthood Clinic in Philadelphia. These videos, which Representative Sims took himself, have rightly sparked broad outrage and garnered much attention in the press. His actions were unbecoming of an elected official. There is much bitter irony that he claims to be a champion for the rights of all women yet he trampled on the rights of others and disgracefully shamed them in public. It was... Read more →

The statement below is by Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli Jr., Camden City Council President Curtis Jenkins and state Sen. Nilsa Cruz Perez in regard to Governor Phil Murphy’s hypocritical comments on the Goldman Sachs tax credits. "Tonight, we read with shock that Gov. Phil Murphy, who has launched a relentless attack on Camden businesses that participated in the state's tax credit programs was not just enthusiastic but lobbied hard when it came time to support tax credits for the oldest investment bank in the country, Goldman Sachs. The Star Ledger reports tonight that in 2003, Gov. Murphy pleaded with then-Gov.... Read more →

Dear supporters, friends, and those interested in the Republican Party of Pennsylvania: Once again, Pennsylvania is at the center of the 2020 world and, after a busy week, I am more energized than I have ever been to re-elect President Donald Trump. The highlight of the week was a meeting I attended with our Vice-Chair Bernie Comfort, National Committeeman Bob Asher, and other Pennsylvania Republican leaders with the President’s re-election team. There, we continued the work of implementing a plan we believe will be successful in getting President Trump re-elected. We will continue partnering with the RNC and the re-election... Read more →


Letter to the Editor: It's Time to Move on from the Collusion Myth

I recently wrote an op-Ed that was published in PennLive where I stand up for President Trump and call out the Democrats for spending two years and $25 million of taxpayer money for the most character-assassinating witch hunt in American Presidential history. Here is a portion that gets right to the point of why I am writing: Our nation’s unemployment rate is at 3.8 percent, there are more jobs open than there are people to fill them, we are working with other countries to make trade deals better for our country, more Americans have money in the pockets because of...

Judicial Watch Statement on Mueller Report

(Washington, DC) (March 24, 2019)--— Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement in response to the Muller special counsel report summary made public by Attorney General Barr today: The long, national nightmare is over and President Trump has been vindicated. The corruptly-created and constitutionally abusive Mueller investigation failed to find any evidence to support the big lie that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government. We’re pleased that AG Barr rejected Mueller’s attempt to smear President Trump with obstruction of justice innuendo by concluding that no such charges could be credibly sustained. Frankly, Mueller never had a... Read more →


Attorney General Barr Sends Congress Letter On Special Counsel Mueller Report
