A brighter day is upon us…starting on Tuesday, January 16, 2018…when our NEXT Governor, Phil Murphy, begins the job of putting NJ back together.
It has been a long, horrible, eight years with CC, full of demonizing educators, scandals and lies.
It ended with some very funny memes, but that hardly made up for the turmoil he caused in the state.
Thanks to everyone who voted…and there were only 35% of registered voters who DID vote! Nothing says “every vote matters” more than that.
We also re-elected our LD 16 friends Senator Linda Greenstein and Assemblyman Dan Benson thanks to your vote, along with LD 14 Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker.
And the icing on the cake? Governor-elect Murphy just put our NJEA President Marie Blistan on his education transition committee. Smart choice!
I see good things on the horizon…the end of PARCC…funding our pensions…elimination of Chapter 78 (which is why we pay so much for health insurance)…RESPECT for what we do!
It sure is a brighter day upon us…
