The start of the school year is here and Election Day is two months away. My campaign for the NJ General Assembly is heating up and I need your help getting the word out by helping me knock on doors, make phone calls, stuff envelopes, write letters to the editor, and so much more.
My message is simple and the evidence is clear - we need to change our priorities. For example, in the last two months, NJ has lost more than 25,000 jobs and our recovery lags far behind our neighboring states and the national average. (http://www.njpp.org/blog/easy-politics-of-tax-breaks-tax-cuts-is-failing-new-jerseys-economy) The billions of dollars approved for corporate tax subsidies are not working and we need a new strategy.
We need to focus on our unique strengths. Did you know that NJ has the highest density of scientists and engineers in the world? We must capitalize on this and create policies that help grow high-quality, high-paying 21st century jobs for people of all backgrounds and education levels.
You can sign up to volunteer on my web site, http://www.zwickerforassembly.com/volunteer. Even if you don't live in the area, you can still help by making phone calls and spreading the word about my campaign.
Thanks and enjoy the last days of the summer!
