EDISON, NJ - The Middlesex County Democratic Organization has unanimously endorsed Assemblyman Patrick J. Diegnan and Assemblywoman Nancy J. Pinkin for reelection this November.
“It is an honor to represent the hard working families of the 18th Legislative District. As Chairman of the Assembly Education Committee, I know that education is the key to success in this ever challenging world,” said Diegnan (D-South Plainfield) “It is a pleasure working with Nancy Pinkin to advance our Democratic agenda of fairness and access.”
Pinkin (D-East Brunswick) echoed her running mate's sentiments. “Thank you to the members of the Democratic Organization. It is rewarding to be working to address issues like bolstering economic development programs which will create more jobs, provide access to education and enhance public safety efforts, so that all of the residents of New Jersey could have a better quality of life. Patrick and I are committed to continue to fight to address the important issues facing our state,” said Pinkin.
“Assemblyman Diegnan is recognized throughout New Jersey for championing the fight for quality K through 12 education. His leadership in bringing focus and reform to the mandated PARCC test has received the accolades of parents, teachers, and administrators,” Organization Chairman Kevin McCabe said. “Assemblywoman Pinkin has already distinguished herself as a leader in health care issues like palliative care and opium abuse.”
Diegnan and Pinkin represent the Middlesex County municipalities of East Brunswick, Edison, Helmetta, Highland Park, Metuchen, South Plainfield and South River. Diegnan is currently the Chair of the Assembly Education Committee. In addition, he sits on the Assembly Economic Development Committee and as Vice Chair of the Assembly Consumer Affairs Committee.
