Ciattarelli: New Jersey City abatement policy ‘only adds insult to injury’ for taxpayers
HUDSON COUNTY VIEW - By John Heinis- April 11, 2017
Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli (R-16), a top Republican candidate for governor, is again attacking Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop by claiming a new city abatement policy designed to help the public schools “only adds insult to injury” for taxpayers.

“Despite Jersey City’s revitalization, however, it continues to have its greatest expense – public schools – paid for by taxpayers across the state. In fact, more than 70 percent of Jersey City’s school budget is paid for by state residents,” Ciattarelli said in a statement.
“A blatantly unfair and terribly flawed state school funding system is the reason, with Jersey City’s grossly generous state subsidy approximating half a billion dollars.”
