The writers of the BREATHE Act state, “History is clear that we cannot achieve genuine safety and liberation until we abandon police, prisons, and all punishment paradigms.” But we’ve all witnessed what happens without consequences. In a matter of weeks, Seattle’s CHOP zone ended with the murder of two teenagers. America needs to wake up.
Anarchists have moved from tearing down statues to destroying churches. A statue of Jesus Christ was even beheaded inside a church in Florida. Where is the outcry?
Our government needs to stop wasting your hard earned tax dollars. You worked for it. I will respect that when I’m elected to Congress.
If we are going to have a national debate on the founding of America and its meaning to the world, let’s do it honestly and with facts.
When Democrats demand, “A woman can have an abortion until the moment of birth,” do they understand what they are saying? Did you ever wonder how they abort that baby?
NJ DOE passed a mandatory sex ed that teaches anal and oral sex to 11-13 year olds and describes sexual intercourse to 8-10 year olds. Parents cannot opt out.
Rep. Donald Payne Jr. should spend more time working to help NJ than jumping into the political fray over whether Washington DC should be a state.
President Trump just signed executive orders protecting our seniors, eliminating fraud and capping Medicare costs for drugs like insulin.
Congress decided not to return to work amid the coronovirus. Tell them to do their jobs.
Share your morning coffee with Jen Zinone, a republican candidate for Congress in New Jersey's 10th District. Let's get to know one another while we're shut in from the coronavirus.
Jennifer Zinone was born and raised in Bayonne. She’s the fifth generation of her family to live in our district. That’s why she feels such a deep connection and devotion to the people living there. So when she learned how the children in her district were falling behind, she realized she could no longer sit on the sidelines and complain to the TV.
Jennifer has a unique perspective on solving the issues facing us today.
She never planned on being a politician. She studied microbiology and physics in college at the University of New Hampshire. When faced with the reality she could not continue in that field due to an autoimmune disease of the eyes, she turned a lifetime love of reading into a new path – writing.
Jennifer has a deep faith and believes in giving back to her community. She volunteered with Easter Seals, Children of the Night, animal rescue organizations, food banks, Christmas toy drives, among others.
As church council president and board member of Women of the ELCA, she reached out to the community, created programs, and fought for what she believed was right.
When Jen sees a need, she cannot help but pitch in. Never backing down from a challenge. Never giving in to bullies trying to take advantage of others.
So now, after years of watching the stalemate in Washington and the complete failure of our representative to bring New Jersey the change, hope and prosperity other states are experiencing, Jen turned that resolve to fixing the problem in our government.
But Jen doesn’t consider the road ahead a challenge. She calls it an honor.
The founding fathers designed the House of Representatives to be the closest to the people. That’s where the title “Representative“ came from.
They’re supposed to represent our local neighborhoods, to care about the day-to-day business of the people, improve their lives and look out for their interests. That’s why the House controls the funding. And that is why we elect our Representatives every two years - to hold them accountable in a meaningful way.
So when our Representative, Congressman Donald Payne Jr., votes only along party lines, even if that goes against the best interests and desires of his district, it is time to elect someone new.
I promise to always put the interests of New Jersey’s 10th District first.
I will fight to improve our schools, support our students, teachers, and after school programs. I will fight to lower prescription drug costs, to ensure quality healthcare for all, to support our families, our troops, and our most vulnerable - all while lowering our national debt.
I will protect our freedom of speech, the right to protect your family, and your right to live a prosperous, independent life. I like a good challenge. So bring it on.
