I urge all Highland Park voters to reelect our 18th District legislators, Senator Patrick Diegnan [and] Assemblymembers Robert Karabinchak and Nancy Pinkin, next Tuesday, November 7. They have consistently advocated for issues that are of concern to Highland Park’s diverse community. They have advocated for local control over charter schools and are opposed to vouchers, while also supporting state aid for nursing, security and technology for non-public schools. They have secured state funding for much-needed road repairs. They have also stood up against baseless anti-Israel discrimination in supporting passage of the law that now prohibits New Jersey state pension and annuity funds from being invested in companies that participate in the discriminatory Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel and Israeli businesses. On Election Day, please join me in voting for Patrick Diegnan, Robert Karabinchak and Nancy Pinkin, who can be counted on to represent Highland Park’s interests in the New Jersey State Legislature.
