Getting Sick Shouldn’t Put You In The Poorhouse
We can all agree that New Jersey is the greatest state in the nation; but we can all also agree that we must work to make our state more affordable. More affordable for homeowners, working families, businesses, and more affordable for patients who rely on life-saving prescription drugs.
Our Inclusive Calendar of Events
Every month, like clockwork, traditional and social media prompts us, often in earnest, about a special event, occasion, remembrance or just a reminder that something special will occur. Some are serious and have great significance in our lives. For example, February is Black History Month, and we will, fittingly, learn about exceptional women and men who led the struggle for equality. We will also discover celebrations that seem, to us, whimsical and downright funny, such as National Embroidery Month and National Grapefruit Month. All of these special months and occasions are entombed in Chase’s Calendar of Events.
Team Troy: The People – and Stories – Behind the Public Service
Hey Boss! Do you have a minute? As the New Jersey Senate passes the mid-way point of the current legislative term, I wanted to take a minute to provide you with an update of the work I have done on your behalf. While much of the attention and headlines get devoted to the public policy part of my job (the 112 legislative proposals I have helped enact), the best part of my job is the public service –when my office helps people navigate issues facing them or their loved ones.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day: A Time to Serve
When we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, on Monday, January 20th, well-deserved accolades will follow this giant of the civil rights movement and champion of social justice. It is a fitting gesture and one that should inspire all of us to emulate him in our own way, however modest.
I would suggest that if we really want to honor Dr. King’s legacy, there is even a more potent and fulfilling way beyond thankful words: Let’s start by engaging our community with a servant’s mindset towards giving back to our communities.
January Is National Mentoring Month
Offering Help And Refuge To Victims Of Human Trafficking
Human trafficking is a scourge throughout our land and, unfortunately, it also occurs in New Jersey. That’s why I’m part of a coalition determined to offer hope and a refuge to victims of this despicable practice.
As a result of our collective efforts, posters (in English and Spanish) will be posted in rest areas on all New Jersey Turnpike bathrooms and on the Garden State Parkway.
