Happy Holidays!

Friends:

I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you seasons greetings and best wishes for a happy and safe holiday season! I also wanted to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude for your continued support, guidance and engagement as I try my best to represent the men and women of the 7th Legislative District. As 2014 and the blessings of a new year await, I’d like to take a moment to look back at some of the key legislative moments that with your help, we were able to accomplish together.

Whether it was our work to revise the law concerning disabled person identification cards and placards related to parking privileges,  create the Helmets to Hardhats program within the New Jersey Turnpike Authority to provide real employment opportunities for returning veterans once they've left the battlefield and come home or through our efforts to create new jobs and keep businesses in New Jersey through the New Jersey Economic Opportunity Act, we did all these things and more by working together to make New Jersey a better place.

But, there is still more work to be done. I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and continuing the fight to bring meaningful tax relief, greater educational opportunity and enhanced economic growth to the residents of the 7th Legislative District. I thank you again....my bosses....for the honor and privilege to serve each of you as one of your Assemblymen. May the warmth and peace of this holiday season wrap itself around you and your families.

Sincerely,

Troy Singleton
Assemblyman, 7th District

Help Me Bring YOUR Ideas to Trenton

Dear Friends:

Nancy Hartwick came to me over a year ago to express her frustration with the enforcement of disabled parking privileges. She told me about the struggles she faces on a daily basis finding a place to park that can accommodate her vehicle and wheelchair ramp. She regularly witnessed people with no visible disability abusing expired placards just to park a few feet closer to their destination.

Nancy and I worked together on a common sense legislative solution to this very real problem going on all across our State. The result was Assembly Bill 2947 which was signed into law on January 14th of this year and went into effect on August 1st.

Under the law, the following changes have been made concerning the issuance and renewal of temporary and permanent identification cards and placards for individuals with disabilities:

  • The term "handicapped" will be replaced with "person with a disability" in keeping with current state law that requires offensive or outmoded terminology be replaced with more acceptable, current language;

  • All disability windshield placards will be issued with a prominently printed and displayed expiration date;

  • Permanent person with a disability identification cards and placards will be required to be renewed every three years; and

  • The certification of a medical professional will be required for the issuance and/or renewal of a person with a disability identification card or placard.

Nancy is a citizen legislator. She went to the take action button on my website and filled out the “There Should Be a Law” form to bring this important issue to my attention. It’s people like Nancy who motivate me to work harder every day to represent the 7th district, real people with real problems who can make a difference.

Let’s hear from Nancy about why this law is so important to her:

Let me know what you think should be law in New Jersey and help me bring your ideas to Trenton. Visit my website for the latest updates from the 7th district and find out how our citizen legislators are working to make New Jersey an even better place to live, work and raise a family.
