PARSIPPANY — With a background of proven bipartisanship, public service, and a successful career in business, Assemblywoman BettyLou DeCroce announced her plans to seek re-election in the 26th District this year promising to be a check and balance against the extreme policies of Governor Phil Murphy and a voice of common sense in Trenton.
“The people in my district want a representative who is willing to compromise in order to get things done, but who is also unafraid to take a stand when extreme policies in Trenton threaten our taxpayers and our quality of life,” said DeCroce.
DeCroce will continue to fight for improving affordability for the middle-class, making life easier for small business owners, ensuring students receive a high-quality education, and making healthcare more affordable and accessible.
“Unlike most Trenton politicians, I refuse to believe that spending more money is the answer to every problem,” said DeCroce. “We need to stop with the band aid approach and advance real reform of our failed school funding formula that is cheating students and punishing taxpayers. Moreover, we need to make healthcare more affordable by holding insurance companies accountable and putting healthcare decisions back in the hands of patients and their doctors.”
A successful private business owner for years, DeCroce previously served as Deputy Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs and has been a trailblazer for women in politics and government since the early 1980’s. She has served in the Assembly since 2012.
