Our thoughts go out to the entire Bucco family.
Please see this update from the Morris County YRs below:
Dear Friend of the Morris County Young Republicans,
The Morris County Young Republicans are saddened by the passing of Senator Tony Bucco.
Senator Bucco was an asset to so many Young Republicans over the years and supportive of all of our endeavors and pursuits. We will miss him. Please join us in keeping the Bucco family in your thoughts and prayers.
Chair, Morris County Young Republicans
We recommend you watch this great video on Argentina’s history. It was just earlier this century that it was the one of the richest countries in Americas, if not the world. But then Socialist policies were put in place and high-taxes to fund these programs, resulting in complete of their economy, high unemployment and inflation at 3000%. And now the Democrats want these same policies in our country today. Those who don’t learn the lessons of history are due to repeat it!
We hope you are following the very inspiring mass movement in support of Democracy, rights and freedom in Hong Kong. Hong Kong protesters are waiving American Flags and asking for the help of the Trump Administration (video here) in the face of suppression of their civil rights from the communist government of China. We recommend all American patriots reflect on why we can’t take our own rights for granted (see a great note on this from the Tea Party here), and consider ways we can support their fight for liberty (like in this opinion piece from the Washington Examiner).

Donald Trump’s no racist, as past acts and presidential record prove
The Hill — 08/07/19 10:50 AM EDT
By Andrew Stein, opinion contributor
Donald Trump is no racist. I have known him since 1973 and have never seen any indication or any form of racism. In fact, quite the contrary.
When I was Manhattan Borough president and president of the New York City Council, I asked him numerous times to help black or Hispanic groups, and he always came through, many times without publicity. When a hurricane ravished Puerto Rico in the mid 1980s, I asked many big companies to give various forms of assistance — but the problem was how to get all of this aid down to Puerto Rico. I called Donald Trump, and he provided us with a 727 jet to take all of the donated material down to the island, and he didn’t ask for any publicity for that generous act.

BUCCO STATEMENT ON BHIMANI AND DRAEGER’S PHONY CALL TO FUND 25TH DISTRICT SCHOOLS
BOONTON, NJ – Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco released the following statement regarding Darcy Draeger and Lisa Bhimani’s phony call yesterday to fully fund 25th district schools:
“I’m glad that my two opponents finally decided to join me in calling for fairer school funding. They’re correct – school funding has become a major issue early on in the campaign,” said Bucco. “Here’s the problem: when pressed multiple times earlier this month, my opponents refused to tell the taxpayers of this district how they would vote on the very budget that guts our district’s public schools in the first place. All in order to appease both sides of the Trenton Democratic divide.”
New Jersey’s business climate under Governor Murphy continues to get worse and worse, according to a number of non-partisan studies, such as this one. His policies have us ranked dead last in Nation for tax burden on business and individuals, affecting the ease of opening and maintaining businesses, preserving good paying jobs, and therefore desirability of living and raising a family in the state. We can turn this around by kicking his Democrat allies out of office this November, and then the Murphy administration out of Trenton in 2021. Only by voting Republican will get our great state back on track!
