Issues

Clarke has focused on accelerating the transition to renewable energy not only as a means of addressing climate change and reducing the state’s emissions, but as a way to protect public health while creating thousands of well-paying jobs and generating revenue to relieve New Jersey taxpayers like her family from unsustainable tax increases.

 

Clean Energy Jobs

We can generate tens of thousands of well-paying, union jobs to keep families here, grow the tax base and boost our economy by transitioning to renewable energy. 

Education

We can ensure our children have the equal opportunity to learn in a safe and supportive environment, and give them the tools they need to stay competitive in an increasingly-automated changing workforce.

Air Quality

We can improve air quality and public health by cutting emissions and holding polluters accountable through direct regulations.

Tax relief

By transitioning to clean energy and enacting tax fairness policies we can create well-paying jobs, generate sustainable revenue to fix our credit rating, and offset the tax burden on middle class families.

Clean, Drinkable Water

We can create smart routing and infrastructure plans to protect our drinkable water from pollution and climate impacts, and deliver clean water to residents.

Health Care

BY creating a state exchange to safeguard key coverage protections, we can extend access to affordable and quality healthcare for all, cut costs and premiums and protect our families.
