Progressive activist Jay Lassiter netted $3,100 for prospective 35th District state senate challenger Jeff Gardner at a Sunday fundraiser at Lassiter’s home in Cherry Hill.
Infuriated by state Sen. John Girgenti’s (D-Hawthorne) “no” vote on marriage equality, Gardner wants to challenge Girgenti.
“As this election gets closer, it might turn out that Jeff Gardner is a one-issue candidate and that issue is Property Taxes,” said Lassiter. “As far as I’m concerned, his opponent, Senator Girgenti’s prominent and ever-growing roll in the whole PV Sewer scandal make him the poster-child for why our statewide property taxes are so high. We pay them in Cherry Hill too. So do I.”
