Middlesex County Democrats Line Up to Support Greenstein for Departing Holt's House Seat

February 21, 2014 at 1:54 PM

METUCHEN, NJ - Citing her commitment to progressive values and her record as a champion of working families, Middlesex County Democratic Chairman Kevin McCabe and representatives from every single Middlesex County town in the 12th Congressional District Friday endorsed Senator Linda Greenstein’s campaign for Congress.

“Middlesex County is united and committed to electing Linda Greenstein to the United States Congress," said McCabe. "Simply put, there is no stronger advocate for the progressive values that we as Democrats embrace than Senator Greenstein.  Whether it is fighting for paid family leave, protecting seniors from predatory scams or standing up for organized labor, Senator Greenstein embodies the best that public service has to offer.  She has represented Middlesex and Mercer Counties as an outstanding legislator for almost 15 years, and I am confident that she will be just as strong an advocate for our interests in Washington."

Greenstein is running to replace Rep. Rush Holt, who announced earlier this week that he would not seek re-election to another term.

"Linda Greenstein has served Middlesex County as a member of her local school board, as a local councilwoman, as an Assemblywoman and as a State Senator," added Vice Chair Beatrice Moskowitz. "Her deep understanding and commitment to our values is unparalleled.  Washington needs a dose of the common sense Senator Greenstein has exhibited over the course of her long and distinguished career in public service."

"I’m privileged to receive the support of so many dedicated public servants, who all share my goal of promoting common-sense, progressive solutions to our nation's problems," said Senator Greenstein.  "Whether it is promoting legislative solutions or addressing the needs of working middle class families, I am proud of my record delivering on behalf of the residents of Central New Jersey.  Those are the values I intend to take to Washington as our district's Congresswoman."

Republicans have held the House since 2010, when they won a sweeping victory eight months after the passage of Obamacare, which just went into effect four months ago. Currently, polls in a generic Congressional vote for 2014 show it dead even between Repulicans and Democrats, 41.7-41.7, according to an average of polls compiled by RealClearPolitics.com.

‘A Child’s Christmas in Wales' Captures Old-Fashioned Nostalgia at Shakespeare Theatre

MADISON, NJ – It’s clear the Welsh love to sing as the evening moves on with relatives gathering for Christmas dinner at the Thomas home in Wales.

The play opens with three children and then a chorus singing “In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,” a melancholy tune that conjures visions of Swansea, a village in Wales,  with “fallen snow on ...
