NJEA recognizes that the most effective way to ensure full pension funding is by returning proven friends of education to office, and electing new ones, with the goal of increasing the pro-education majority that already exists. As we have seen, we need a super-majority of pro-public education legislators in order to combat Governor Christie’s vetoes of legislation that matter to us: bills that fund the pension, fight privatization, make millionaires pay their fair share, and much more.
Between now and Election Day on Tuesday, November 3, NJEA is organizing members to volunteer and work for our endorsed candidates.
Below are some opportunities for YOU to make a difference and elect pro-public education candidates on November 3.
