Does anybody understand what the Public Question that we will be voting on means?
PUBLIC QUESTION #1
CONSTITUTIONALAMENDMENT TO DEDICATE ASSESSMENTS ON WAGES BY THE STATE TO THE PAYMENT OF EMPLOYEE BENEFITS
Shall the amendment to Article VIII, Section II of the State Constitution, agreed to by the Legislature, which: prohibits collection by the State of assessments based solely on employee wages and salaries
for any purpose other than providing employee benefits; dedicates all employer and employee contributions collected for any employee benefit fund, and all returns on investments of those contributions, to the purpose of that fund; and prohibits any transferring, borrowing, appropriating or using of those contributions or returns for any other purpose, be approved?

INTERPRETIVE STATEMENT
This proposed constitutional amendment prohibits the collection by the State of assessments based on employee wages and salaries for any purpose except paying employee benefits (or making other employee-authorized
or federally required payments, in the case of the Stateʼs own employees), dedicates all contributions made to the unemployment compensation fund, the State disability benefits fund, or any other employee benefit fund, and
all returns on investments of those contributions, to the purpose of that fund, and prohibits the use of those contributions or returns for any other purpose. The requirements of this proposed amendment do not apply to the gross income tax, which is exclusively dedicated by the Constitution to the purpose of reducing or offsetting local property taxes.

It depends upon your definition of "notable", but the Hudson County Sheriff's election will occur on Election Day. And depending upon where you live, you might be voting in one or two special elections, as well:

If you live in Ward B, there is the special election to re-elect your Councilman, David Donnelly. He replaced Phil Kenny after Kenny's guilty plea last year.

If you live in the 31st legislative district of NJ, there is a special election for Jason O'Donnell. He's the Assemblyman that replaced Anthony Chiappione following the latter's guilty plea this year.

Otherwise, you're voting in the US Congressional and County Sheriff's elections only.

Who is up for election for November 2010? Is it just our member of Congress? Any notable local elections?
