On Nov. 5, New Jersey voters will head to the polls to elect 80 members to the New Jersey General Assembly. State government has a profound impact on what happens in New Jersey’s schools. That’s why the NJEA Political Action Committee (PAC) carefully screens all candidates for statewide public office.
NJEA PAC prides itself on having a sound, fair, and democratic process leading up to the endorsement of a candidate. The purpose of the process is to identify the candidates most supportive of NJEA’s legislative program. Endorsing and electing candidates who support NJEA’s goals significantly increases the association’s ability to pass favorable legislation and stop negative legislation.
