What Issues Would You Want NJ Politicial Candidates to Speak About?
The political season is well underway with 2 big elections coming up in the Garden State, but do NJ voters care? According to the recent polls, the numbers say that they don't.
According to a Monmouth University poll, most voters aren't impressed with the substance of the current campaigns.
There reason there is no real excitement behind the race between the governor and challenger Barbara Buono, is that there is no real hot button issues for the candidates to debate.
As Jim noted on the air this morning, in past years, discussions about changes to car insurance or the MVC have had people's attention, this year, there really isn't one single issue that have NJ residents fired up.
What issue would you like to hear the candidates discuss? Leave your comments below.
Here are what some of the topics Jim's listeners wanted to hear about from the candidates:
Mark in Perth Amboy: Immigration
Lisa in Tabernacle: Wasteful spending
Rich in Jackson: Marijuana legalization
Max in Howell: Marijuana reform
Linda in Roxbury: Environmental issues
John in Whiting: New HUD initiative
Charles in Dayton: End of mortgage modification
Joe in Long Branch: Privatization of government agencies
Or are you like Linda in Lakewood who said that there really ARE no button button issues this year?
