OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY
 
WASHINGTON, DC - Rep. Tom MacArthur has the distinction of being the only member of New Jersey's congressional delegation to support $1.5 trillion in tax cuts for businesses and individuals.  MacArthur was also the only of the 13 Republicans from New York, New Jersey or California to vote for the Trump bill, according to The New York Times. With the bill ending so many of the income and sales tax deductions that New Jerseyans enjoy and with the 3rd District's median household income hovering around $55,000, you gotta really wonder what constituency MacArthur is serving.

OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY
 
ATLANTIC CITY - In what should finally be an interesting annual League of Municipalities luncheon, Phil Murphy will be taking the microphone today to talk to municipal officials about his plans for New Jersey. Gov. Chris Christie will be someplace else, as he has been for most of his second term, attending the Republican Governors Association conference in Texas. Usually, an appearance at the luncheon would be the final swan song for the lame duck governor to bathe in accolades and adoration for a job well done. (Note Gov.

One would think that with decisive wins statewide the Democratic Party's standard bearer would be making victory laps, but Phil Murphy was nowhere to be seen last night. Even though Murphy as been a staple at the League conference since 2014 with his famous one-on-one discussion with Jon Bon Jovi, this year expect the governor-elect to make quiet appearances at small events before making an anticipated keynote at Thursday's closing luncheon. Despite his verve to campaign, humility appears to be the name of Murphy's post-election game.

OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY
 
ATLANTIC CITY - When government leaders across New Jersey flock to the League of Municipalities conference today, expect many to ask: So, what's the deal with all these vacant casinos? After all, casino revenue is now up around $2 billion for the year, an increase of 9 percent since last November. Yet there are now five shuttered casinos, rapidly decaying. Even the covered entrance of the former Atlantic Club came crashing down in September.  Yep, Atlantic City officials say, it's not pretty out there. But they vow lots of hush-hush stuff is in the works, and when conference attendees swing by in November 2019, or so, expect a completely different picture.
