This Week in Mercer: County proposed budget and state funding for local education

Today on This week in Mercer, the show will feature an expanded hour-long program, including County Executive Brian Hughes.

He will be on the show to talk about his initiatives as executive and the $295 million budget he proposed last week. That budget stays within the 2 percent property tax cap, but because of falling home values and other factors, residents could see their taxes jump significantly.

Listeners will also hear Julia Sass Rubin, from the organization Save Our Schools New Jersey talk about funding for schools in the state and the status of education funding in Governor Chris Christie’s proposed budget.

So make sure to join host Michael Macagnone on 1490 WBCB at 4 p.m., or check out the show later at
