We are proud to announce our endorsement of Christine Clarke for State Assembly. She will stand up to the environment and become a leader on issues that matter to us.

She will support legislation that will promote renewable energy and green jobs. She will also support climate smart strategies rather than dirty fossil fuel projects ... Christine will fight for New Jersey’s environment, public health, and economy and we fully endorse her for New Jersey State Assembly in the 2019 election.

Christine is an environmental advocate running to protect her district’s health and well-being. She wishes to focus on the job growth, new revenue, and exponential economic gains that the renewable energy market can bring to New Jersey. Her platform also includes clean energy jobs, tax relief, safe water and air, and affordable healthcare.

We are proud to endorse Christine Clarke in the 26th District, and we urge you to vote for her on November 5th.

LD 26 needs new leadership, plain and simple. Assemblyman Jay Webber is one of polluters’ best friends in Trenton with an abysmal 34% lifetime environmental record on our latest scorecard. New Jersey LCV is endorsing Christine because of her commitment to put our families and businesses ahead of for-profit polluters to ensure New Jersey is headed on a cleaner, more sustainable path.

With more news on the gridlock in Trenton, such as the inaction on the legalization of marijuana and the corruption with the EDA, ATNJ believes that the State Legislature needs new voices from regular, hardworking, middle-class people among its ranks to speak for the working class. A mom of four and a resident of Jefferson Township, Clarke is hardworking and engaged, advocating for underrepresented populations and the middle class. Clarke’s work as an Environmental Advocate makes her uniquely qualified to be an essential voice in the Assembly as New Jersey moves forward to make necessary changes in the current climate crisis.
