Gov Christie assured us all that although he is reducing the school budget by 2% it would NOT increase our property tax. This was due to the fact that most schools keep an extra 2% aside for emergencies, etc. Therefore, reducint their funds by 2% they could still operate on the same budget but wouldn't have any reserve. There will be no property tax increases.
Did we hear an untruth somewhere from our Governor? Pitman school destrict received less state funding and immediately increased our property taxes. They also laid off 25 workers. So much for Christie's plan making NJ a better place to live.
