The below is a letter written by a BlueWaveNJ member to the Star Ledger in regards to disgraceful and false advertisement put out by Bob Hugin.


Dear Editors:

I'm  outraged by latest Bob Hugin's ad dredging up completely discredited old allegations concerning Bob Menendez and under age prostitutes.

BlueWaveNJ Endorses Bob Menendez For Senate

We Can Count on Menendez to fight for us in Washington.

BlueWaveNJ’s board has unanimously endorsed Senator Menendez based on his commitment to the progressive agenda and his extensive record of service to NJ.

On Thursday June 7, the Trump Administration argued in Federal court that the Affordable Care Act’s provisions that protect those with pre-existing medical conditions from being discriminated against by insurers should be struck down, putting the U.S. Department of Justice’s legal weight behind another attempt to destroy Americans’ health care protections under the law.

Democratic Leaders In Trenton Are Blocking A Tax Increase On Incomes Over $1 Million

Contact Your State Representatives To Help Us Pass A More Fair Tax Code.

Many of our state's Democratic representatives are pushing back against a plan to raise taxes on incomes over $1 million. The Millionaires Tax will make our tax system fairer.
