Candidate’s statement

“On my first day in office, if elected, I will review the dues structure and language from the Bylaws and Constitution to present a process at the Delegate Assembly to freeze, limit or cap the NJEA dues for the next two years of my term. As you review my qualifications at right, it is clear that I, Denise King, have extensive experience guiding, advising, and managing at the local, county, and state levels. It is from these capacities and successful leadership that I am your candidate!” – Denise King
