MAYS LANDING-Today, Congressman Jeff Van Drew blasted the decision of the South Jersey Transportation Authority (SJTA) to raise tolls on hardworking South Jersey families in the middle of a pandemic.

“Under the cover and darkness of a pandemic the SJTA voted to take more money from people in South Jersey who are already financially beaten down,” said Congressman Van Drew. “This is a disgusting abuse of the people of South Jersey and they have nobody to blame but the SJTA (except for Sonny McCullough who voted no). This is a dark day in New Jersey’s history.”
