Praise for additional rent protections

Dear Editor:
The Dec. 11 edition recently reported on additional tenant protections in our city. For seniors 2 percent, and other residents, 3 percent. I applaud Mayor Stack and all the commissioners for extending this to those living on fixed incomes or those struggling to pay their rent.
Our residents should also check out the website, Twitter, or Facebook for Phil Murphy, candidate for governor.
His website states that a minimum wage earner in NJ works at least 100 hours to rent an “average” 1-bedroom apartment. Candidate Murphy supports a minimum wage of $15. I do too.
A minimum wage is roughly 50 percent below what’s needed for essentials.
Moreover, this website declares that Gov. Christie has not provided enough aid to seniors and low-and-middle class income levels.
Strengthening the minimum wage would “benefit about one million workers,” according to the website.
I support Phil Murphy on these and other issues and refer readers to his website for more information and fact-checking.
As Trump enters office, I plan to volunteer for Phil Murphy’s campaign and to say “no” to insider politics and “no” to Gov. Christie.

Sincerely,
Tony Squire
