Commuter Comments from Petition

20 Nov 2017 

As a young, new mom I was thrilled moving to the house of my dreams here in Westfield.  Having a senior role at a Wealth Management firm in NYC, my ONLY reason for looking for a new job is dealing with the terrible commute to midtown every day.  As a high contributing tax payer, it’s completely unfair to ask me to commute almost 4 hours a day while trying to raise a family, so I most likely will have to look elsewhere for presumably less compensation – therefore paying NJ substantially less in taxes.  To attract young, hard-working, tax paying individuals to this area you need to make it more accessible for us to work.
