Dear Editor,

Monmouth County has a long and rich history of supporting our veterans.

Senator Beck has been one of the most supportive of our elected officials

in expanding veterans’ housing, fighting for veterans benefits in Trenton,

and keeping the Veteran community informed about their benefits.

Senator Beck is committed to our veterans and her support is unwavering. I watch carefully the interaction of our elected officials with our veterans to see if

they really care. I can assure you Senator Beck genuinely cares about our

Veterans and their families.

An example of her commitment to our veterans is the collaboration

between Senator Beck, Freeholder Burry, and Mayor Turning from Tinton

Falls on the Soldier On Project. Working tirelessly with the leadership of

Soldier On to create a 75 unit Veterans Village in Tinton Falls.

This project will provide comprehensive care and housing for our homeless veterans.

As a result of Senator Beck’s efforts, our county’s estimated 30 homeless

veterans will be given first priority in Veteran’s Village.

At the State Level Senator Beck sponsored a law enacted this year that

requires a portion of State rental assistance vouchers be reserved to help

struggling veteran’s statewide pay their rent.

Senator Beck supported the enactment of the Veterans Diversion Program

law to divert eligible veterans from the criminal justice system and help

them get the support and mental health treatment they require. The first

program is scheduled for October 28, 2017.

Senator Jennifer Beck is the “Veteran’s Senator” in Monmouth County and

in Trenton.
