EDISON, NJ - The 18th District Democratic team of State Senator Patrick Diegnan, Assemblywoman Nancy Pinkin and Assemblyman Robert Karabinchak has received the backing of New Jersey’s leading environmental organizations for their upcoming election.  


In a joint announcement, the state legislators in the 18th District were endorsed by the Food & Water Watch, the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters, and the Sierra Club. The groups hailed their legislative records and cited their work in providing $200,000 in this year’s state budget for the Dismal Swamp in Middlesex County to continue its preservation work as a benchmark of their joint efforts.


"I am proud to once again receive the support of New Jersey’s leading environmental groups; it means a great deal to me,” said Senator Diegnan. “I resolve to build on the progress Nancy, Rob and I have made in our work together, and we reaffirm our commitment to leaving a clean, healthy Earth for our children and grandchildren."

“We each have a role to play in ensuring that we do not pass a world beyond repair on to our children,” said Assemblywoman Pinkin.  “We accept our legislative responsibilities to care for the world we live in, and we vow to marshal our best efforts toward building a safer, more stable, and more sustainable world.”


"Our team is faithful stewards for the environment and leading voices in Trenton for advancing smart environmental policies and I'm honored to once again receive their endorsements,” said Assemblyman Karabinchak. “The 18th district has a strong history of supporting environmental protections and I'm excited to continue in that tradition."


The leader of one of the environmental organizations, Ed Potosnak, Executive Director of the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters, said, “Patrick, Nancy and Rob have earned our endorsement previously and we are proud to endorse them once again to continue their work in the Legislature as caretakers of our planet. The decisions they make in the years ahead to protect our environment while strengthening our economy will have a profound impact on the health of our state and all of its residents.”
