|Info||“Dear friends, |
Earlier this week, Joe and I received our sample ballots in the mail. Our eyes both went right to the "empty" spot for Democratic Sussex County, New Jersey Freeholder. Nobody, regardless of party or ideology, should ever run unopposed. So, after some discussion with family and friends, I’m giving this a shot.
Our American Dream is not what we see on cable news every night - the American Dream is what happens on our street, in our neighborhood, in our town, in our county. The American Dream is the education our kids have, the trade they master, the clean soil and water we leave them. National politics will not fix our roads or keep tuition affordable. Local representatives can.
We can hold politicians accountable by supporting them when they work for all of us, and letting them know opposition exists when they do not.
It's not "Liberal" vs "Conservative," it's Neighbors before Labels.”
