Thank you for visiting our website.
As the 2019 election, let us reflect, just for a moment, on our gains from last year here in Union County. In 2018, we elected Democrats at an unforeseen level up and down the ticket; we supported municipal-level elections that yielded Democratic council majorities for the first time in decades, we have a female-majority Board of Chosen Freeholders for the first time ever, we are now represented exclusively by both Senators and members of Congress who hold Democratic values, and with continued new membership and enthusiasm, our organization is growing like never before.
We have accomplished much and built a strong record of success here in Union County, but make no mistake – we are only beginning. Our goals this year are clear: we will re-elect – and elect – Democrats to elected office, maintain our countywide Democratic control, and invest in key municipal and local races that will help us build our Party. Before long, we will be coming together to strategize about how best to take our message to the people during next year’s Presidential election – but for now, there is still more than enough work to do in 2019, and we’re here for it. We have phenomenal Freeholder candidates up for re-election, as well as a hard-working incumbent County Surrogate who has devoted many years of his life to handling tough and sensitive matters with compassion and professionalism. We will also be supporting many municipal elections, as well as some incredible candidates for New Jersey State Assembly:
- Incumbents Annette Quijano and Jamel Holley in LD20
- Lisa Mandelblatt and Stacey Gunderman in LD21
- Incumbents Linda Carter and Jim Kennedy in LD22
Given that there are no national-level elections this year, the fact that you are reading this message means that you are engaged in the Democratic process, and for that we thank you. Victory in 2019 starts with you and your willingness to share your time, energy, and dedication to our campaigns. In the coming weeks, I invite you to walk through our doors and join our efforts (there will be no shortage of things to do!), and in return, I promise you a movement that fights for us all.
