On November 5th, the general election in New Jersey happens. We have an opportunity to cast our votes for local and statewide positions, including Governor. The officers of AFT Local 1904 encourage you all to take a moment and thoughtfully consider who you are voting for and whether or not the candidates in question stand with Labor.  Also, remember to vote "Yes" on Question #2 and help Raise the Minimum Wage.
