We may not know every step it’s going to take to bring us back from the COVID-19 crisis that, as I write this, has taken the lives of over 11,000 people in New Jersey and has left tens of thousands of workers unemployed. But U.S. Rep. Chris Smith, true to form, has shown us what not to do.
On May 15, Chris Smith voted against the decidedly bipartisan HEROES Act, a bill that when passed will provide critical resources for New Jersey families. Smith voted against support for our state and local governments, against providing job security for our police officers, firefighters and teachers; and he voted against funding for the testing and tracing that is essential to be able to safely reopen our economy.
