METUCHEN - Middlesex County launched the Federal Action Network (FAN) that will work towards the re-election of Middlesex County Representatives Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-6) and Bonnie Watson Coleman (NJ-12), both of whom will co-chair the group. FAN will also spearhead volunteer efforts across the state that will include volunteer phone banks and canvassing opportunities for Middlesex County residents to increase awareness of federal elections, promote civic engagement throughout the county, while working to elect more Democrats on the federal level in 2018 and 2020 in neighboring counties.

For its kickoff event, FAN will be sending a bus to Washington, DC on Saturday, March 24, to participate in the “March for Our Lives” rally. We are encouraging individuals interested in participating with FAN at the march to contact Iris Delgado, 732-906-3680 or idelgado@mcdonj.org.

“The group will encourage ‘days of action’ with key constituency groups in nearby counties to elect Democrats in congressional districts currently represented by Republican members,” said Middlesex County Chairman Kevin McCabe.

“It has never been more important that we come together and organize to fight for our shared progressive values and against President Trump’s destructive policies,” said Congressman Frank Pallone.

“This is a time in our American politics unlike any other. It is a time of resistance and persistence. It is a time when our engagement is critical in the protection of our democratic principles and values. I applaud the Middlesex County Democrats and their vision to expand opportunities for citizens' civic duties,” said FAN Co-Chair Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman.
