(Bridgewater, NJ) The New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) has endorsed Tom Malinowski in his reelection campaign to defend New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District. The union chooses to support candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to New Jersey students, public education, and working families.
In addition to Congressman Tom Malinowski, NJEA endorsed Donald Norcross, Andy Kim, Josh Gottheimer, Frank Pallone, Bill Pascrell, Donald Payne Jr., Mikie Sherrill, and Bonnie Watson Coleman.
“Our union is proud to endorse these candidates and to support them for reelection. They have demonstrated through their actions that they are advocates for public education and for working families. They have stood with educators through these difficult past two years as we have worked to ensure that our schools are safe and that our students are learning. Their commitment to equity and to justice for all is exactly what we need in Washington, DC right now and we are committed to working hard for their re-election so they get to continue that important work next year. An endorsement from our 200,000-member union comes with our pledge of support on the campaign trail as they make their case to voters and promote a vision for moving our state and our nation forward to a fairer, more equitable and more just future,” said NJEA’s officers, President Sean M. Spiller, Vice President Steve Beatty and Secretary-Treasurer Petal Robertson.
“New Jersey has the best public schools in the nation thanks in good measure to the advocacy of NJEA,” said Malinowski. “Support for our educators is an investment in the future of our kids, and I will never stop fighting to ensure they are treated with the dignity they deserve.”
