PISCATAWAY, NJ - Leaders of statewide progressive groups will join Legislative District 17 residents for a town hall to discuss a legislative road map that district legislators can follow to support a working families platform.
Senator Bob Smith, and Assemblymen Danielsen & Egan have refused to attend a "Blue 40" Town Hall spearheaded by NJ Working Families Alliance. In response, residents and statewide progressive leaders will host a People's Town Hall, tomorrow, October 16. Activists believe the refusal stemmed from Senator Smith's refusal to support 100% renewable energy, Assemblyman Danielsen's vote against a $15/hr minimum wage, or Assemblyman Egan's refusal to support a bill to override Christie's veto and fully fund Planned Parenthood.
WHO: Analilia Mejia, Executive Director-NJ Working Families Alliance; Jon Whiten, VP-New Jersey Policy Perspective; Junior Romero, Regional Organizer-Food & Water Watch; Christine Sadovy, Political Director-Planned Parenthood Action Fund of New Jersey
WHAT: The People's Town Hall: 17th District
