BY THE NUMBERS: Christie touts major ‘Fairness Formula’ property tax savings for Bergen County

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Governor Chris Christie takes his #fairschoolfunding push to Bergen County on Thursday, Save Jerseyans, and he’ll make the case for a new K-12 state aid formula to a town hall audience in Fair Lawn. You can watch the event here LIVE:

This plan is a no-brainer.

Even the home town of Steve Sweeney, a leading opponent of the plan, way down in South Jersey would receive 58% more funding per student in addition to average net property tax decreases.

Here are the average town-by-town property tax savings for Bergen ahead of today’s event. Share with a friend in North Jersey:
