Mike Testa Jr. is running to be the conservative check and balance that Cape May County taxpayers need against Phil Murphy’s radical, liberal agenda in Trenton.

Gov. Phil Murphy and his radical liberal allies in Trenton are hurting Cape May County.

The Murphy Democrats cut over $4 million in aid to Cape May County school districts, while giving nearly $4 million of our taxpayer money in tuition assistance to illegal immigrants.

The Murphy Democrats raised taxes and spending by billions of dollars, continuing to drive jobs away and residents because they can’t afford to stay.

Also, the Murphy Democrats declared New Jersey a sanctuary state for illegal immigrants, and even prohibited state, county, and local law enforcement from cooperating with ICE agents.

Our incumbent State Senator Bob Andrzejczak? He’s voted with Murphy 93% of the time.

Listen, Senator Andrzejczak is a good man and his service to our nation should be honored. But the last thing we need right now in Trenton more Democrats.

It’s time for a check and balance on the Murphy Democrats and their radical liberal agenda.

Republican Mike Testa, Jr. will be that Senator, and is proud to be running with two State Assembly running mates from Cape May County, Lower Township Mayor Erik Simonsen and Ocean City Ward 2 Councilman Antwan McClellan.

Testa, Jr. has deep roots in South Jersey. His Dad’s grandparents emigrated from Italy – legally, by the way – to secure a better future for their children and themselves. His grandfather went on to become the first elected Mayor of Vineland and a Judge, despite not speaking English until the 1st grade. His father built the family law firm where Testa, Jr. is now a partner.

Testa, Jr.’s mother’s parents were Polish Jews who met in a Nazi concentration camp during World War II and were freed by Allied soldiers. After the war, they came to the United States, and operated a chicken farm in Buena.

Today, Mike Testa Jr. and his wife Julie are the proud parents of three children, Eva Marie, Sarah, and Tripp. Mike is a graduate of Villanova University School of Law and received his Masters at Temple University's Beasley School of Law, and Julie is a Vineland school librarian.

Continuing his family’s commitment to public service, Mike was the board chairman of the Vineland Downtown Improvement District, past chair of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cumberland and Salem Counties, and board president of the Vineland Regional Dance company.

As our next State Senator, Mike will:

Push for school funding reform that reduces property taxes on suburban and rural communities, stops throwing money at failing schools in urban areas, and gives every child in the state an ability to pursue a high-quality education no matter their zip code.

Make South Jersey more affordable, cut taxes and reduce the size of government by sponsoring legislation to require a two-thirds supermajority of the legislature to raise any state taxes and empower voters to have a say on the incurring of any new state debt.

Fight to overturn Phil Murphy's dangerous sanctuary state directive and oppose taxpayer-funded giveaways to illegal immigrants, like free college tuition, healthcare, and driver’s licenses.

Protect the Second Amendment and fight Trenton liberals trying to take away our gun rights.

Work to bring serious economic investment to South Jersey – like the completion of Rt 55, which has been promised and never delivered for decades by Democrat legislators.
