A Trip to NJ-04?

This morning, a group from NJ-08 for Progress is pursuing a new frontier--the quiet strip of central New Jersey known as the 4th Congressional District.

We have written postcards, canvassed, and fundraised for Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11), Tom Malinowski (NJ-07), Josh Gottheimer (NJ-05), and Andy Kim (NJ-03), but this will be our first foray into the campaign of Josh Welle, who is looking to unseat long-time Republican Congressman Chris Smith.  

Should Welle prevail, he could be the final jewel in the crown of an all-blue New Jersey congressional delegation.  Thus, we plan to expand our canvassing efforts in his district over the next few months, and we want you to be involved!  

Keep a look out for more trips in the future.

Local Voltron Events

Lest we forget, we have three upcoming Postcard Writing events--on Wednesday, August 15 in Hamilton Park; on Tuesday, August 21, at a private home in Paulus Hook; and on Tuesday, August 28 at a private home in Jersey City Heights.  

In addition, we are planning more caravan trips out to canvass in swing districts--they are a lot of fun and the best way to engage voters!  You can find plenty of canvassing opportunities around New Jersey by checking the Swing Left district calendars listed below.

And finally, the next Hudson County Freeholders meeting will take place on September 13, at a much more manageable 6PM.  Cracks in their support for the ICE contract renewal began to show in their August meeting--it is time to increase the pressure by letting them know, in droves, how their constituents feel about cooperation with "Zero Tolerance Immigration Enforcement."
