New Jersey Fireman’s Association Comments on Murphy Administrations Attempt to Divert Funds

PFANJ Statement on Proposed $33M Fund Diversion from New Jersey State Fireman’s Association

Dear Brothers & Sisters,

As reported in NJ.com (http://bit.ly/2H4URDB) on May 5, 2019, it appears that the Governor’s proposed budget for 2020 calls for $33 million to be siphoned from the New Jersey Fireman’s Association. This fund was established in 1885 to assist active and retired firefighters – paid or volunteer – during times of financial hardship or tragedy.

The State’s reasoning is that the fund is healthy and will still have plenty of money after the $33 million is removed. Respectfully, we all know how that worked out back in the 1990’s when the State siphoned money from the Police and Fire Retirement System!

We cannot let history repeat itself.

The State of New Jersey should learn from their prior mistakes – mistakes the pension fund (PFRS) are still suffering from today.

President
Professional Firefighters Association of New Jersey

Reader says, ” it is much more dangerous now to be a driver because all pedestrians feel they have the right of way “

“I still have a bumper sticker on my car from when they tried this several years ago. In my opinion it is much more dangerous now to be a driver because all pedestrians feel they have the right of way even in front of a car making a turn or mere feet in front of you. Maybe it is now time to convince some people that a car turning–or especially backing up–or within a few feet of you CAN’T SEE YOU and you should cease walking out without looking first!”
