One thing that already distinguishes this legislative election cycle from recent years is the volume of GOP contenders taking to the TV airwaves relatively early in the fall, Save Jerseyans.
The latest is David Stahl (R-East Brunswick), the popular mayor of LD-18’s largest municipality; his spot highlights the Stahl record at turning around East Brunswick government:
Stahl is running for the seat left open by Barbara Buono’s decision to “run” (if that’s even a fair description) for governor against Chris Christie. He joins Republicans Niki Trunk (in LD3) and Susan Adelizzi-Schmidt (in LD1) who’ve also recently launched TV commercials.
“Voters are tired of empty rhetoric from career politicians in Trenton,” said Stahl in a release announcing his first ad buy of the campaign. “While my opponent spends his time in Trenton blocking property tax relief and towing the party line, I’m working with both parties here at home to make East Brunswick more affordable and attract good paying jobs back to our town.”
