There's no question New Jersey's facing big issues.
It's in major debt. Taxes are high. School performance is all over the map. Crime rates, too. Poor-rich divides persist in many areas—sometimes with neighborhoods divided by a single street or imaginary line. And businesses don't know what to expect from New Jersey's future.
And in challenging times, we turn to our leaders. So here's the question for Thursday night'sNJPatchChat: How are the Big 3 doing? What do you think of the jobs our president, Barack Obama; our governor, Chris Christie; and our senator, Robert Menedez have done for the Garden State?
You can answer (or see how others answer) at 7 p.m. on NJPatchChat, Patch's statewide Twitter chat on big issues with local impacts.
N-J-Patch-What? Here's How It Works:
Just head to Twitter Thursday night at 7 p.m. and search for the term #NJPatchChat." That's what's called a "hashtag"—a special term Twitter users keep an eye on, to follow an ongoing discussion or a particular topic. Want to join into the conversation? Use the term "#NJPatchChat" somewhere in your tweet (your Twitter post), and anyone following along will see what you have to say.
See you Thursday night.
