As you are aware, the hearing and vote on the Earned Sick and Safe Days bill (A1827 / S 2171) is set for this coming Monday (March 12th) at 10 am in Assembly Labor Committee at the NJ State House Annex (Cmte. Room 15). A press availability event and lunch will follow at 11:30 am in Cmte. Room 12, see media alert here.
Since Rodney Frelinghuysen announced his retirement earlier this year, only one Republican has announced that they will attempt to fill his seat. Jay Webber is currently the only Republican running in the 11th. We did some digging into his voting record in the Assembly to find out what kind of congressman he would make.
It is clear from his voting record that he is wrong for the 11th.
The horrific Republican tax cut bill is not law yet -- and may never be. Senators Susan Collins and Jeff Flake conditioned their votes on promises from Trump and McConnell that will not be honored. McCain is once again lamenting degraded Senate processes. Doug Jones could win in Alabama.
As we give thanks for our family, friends and the blessings of community, we would like to extend a special thanks to you — BlueWaveNJ’s extended family of activists and donors.
Over the past year — and in the face of deeply disturbing challenges — you rolled up your sleeves and persevered. You dedicated your time, talents and resources to “Protect, Defend and Act,” and your accomplishments, both large and small, have been hard-won.
- Lead to a tax hike for about 1 in 4 New Jersey families,
- Deliver the bulk of its benefit to the state's wealthiest families
- And tee up deep cuts to public services, programs and investments on which all New Jerseyans rely.
Remember Nov. 2016? Since then we have been reminded daily that elections matter.
Well, it’s November again and tomorrow we have the power.
Tomorrow we can take back New Jersey by electing Phil Murphy and other progressive Democrats across the state--a first step in turning back the Trump tide.
I would be shocked if there is a single woman you know that hasn't been sexually harassed or assaulted.
Wow... we’ve been busy here at BlueWaveNJ!
