Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon today heaped praise upon the NJHA (New Jersey Hospital Association) for its demand to be removed from the Traffic Safety Coalition’s website as a partner. The Coalition purports to be an organization dedicated to the improvement of traffic safety but is actually created by, run by and wholly funded by one of the red-light camera companies.

Asembly Republican Budget Officer issued the following statement regarding the failure of the Democrat pension payment constitutional amendment to be posted in time to make this year's ballot:

"The passage of the fatally flawed amendment would have been a disaster for the taxpayers of New Jersey as well as those who depend on state services.  Even a slight economic down turn could have proven disastrous.  We also would have faced instant credit downgrades as insolvency and short term borrowing default would have been real possibilities - perhaps even likely.

Little Silver-Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon  (R-13) announced that he has raised over $100,000 for his campaign to replace Senator Joe Kyrillos in the upper chamber of the New Jersey Legislature.
“The job of a State Senator is so much more than going to Trenton and voting on bills,” O’Scanlon said. “The job includes being a leader in the community and the Party.  That means having the resources to support your own campaign, the campaigns of other great candidates and most importantly, civic and charitable organizations in the district.  Senator Kyrillos filled that role as well if not better than anyone.  I am prepared to continue in Joe's footsteps.”
“I am deeply grateful to my friends and supporters who have enabled me to support great candidates and organizations during my eight year career in the Assembly.  I am humbled that they have stepped up so strongly to support my candidacy for Senate. Between the funds we have and will raise and my own resources, I will see to it that I'm an effective leader on this front in the District and the County.”
O’Scanlon said he is on track to have $350,000 at his disposal by the spring and over $1,000,000 for the general election in November should circumstances call for it. “We live in unpredictable political times,” O’Scanlon continued. “I'm in this race to win.  The Democrats have already declared that they are coming after us. My team will be prepared for any eventuality.  We will make sure that the 13th district and all of Monmouth County remains the shining example of great local government and sound fiscal policies.  The Monmouth County delegation in Trenton will remain a strong and effective voice for fiscal reform in Trenton.”

Assemblyman Declan O'Scanlon (R-Monmouth) announced today that he is running for the State Senate seat being vacated by Senator Joe Kyrillos, who is retiring at the end of the current legislative session.
"Joe Kyrillos has set a very high bar in the difference he has made in so many lives in Monmouth County and beyond," said O’Scanlon. “My record as a leader in the Republican Caucus of the Assembly as well as delivering excellent constituent services to the people of Monmouth County demonstrates that I am the best choice to continue and expand upon Joe's great work."
O'Scanlon's legislative accomplishments include the landmark pension and benefits reform, the 2% property tax cap, the elimination of red light cameras from New Jersey and the recent reforms in the way New Jersey pays for prescription drugs and procures lifesaving equipment for our police officers. O'Scanlon was instrumental in fighting to include tax cuts for veterans and seniors, as well as the elimination of the estate tax, in the recent replenishment of the Transportation Trust Fund.
"I have never let my status as a minority member of the legislature impair me from fighting for and winning fiscal reforms for the hardworking taxpayers of Monmouth County and all of New Jersey," O'Scanlon continued. “There is no member of the Legislature who has proposed more cost-saving reforms in the Legislature than myself to address New Jersey’s property tax crisis. Monmouth County residents are paying too much and receiving too little in return."
O’Scanlon also pointed to his work in rebuilding the Bayshore after Superstorm Sandy as well as his efforts in expanding organ donation in the State, battling the addiction epidemic and his efforts to expand municipalities’ ability to share services. His priority in the Senate will be to expand upon his record of reforming New Jersey's finances to make government more affordable while fulfilling our obligations and growing our economy.

TRENTON, N.J. – Gov. Chris Christie today signed into law legislation sponsored by Assemblymen Declan O’Scanlon and Erik Peterson clarifying that law enforcement agencies can legally procure firearms directly from a manufacturer.

The bill (S2337/A3985) was prompted by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ recent misinterpreted a state regulation so that law enforcement agencies are only permitted to purchase firearms for police officers through a licensed dealer.
