ARATI KREIBICH FILES FOR PRIMARY BALLOT WITH OVER 1,200 SIGNATURES
Glen Rock, NJ – Today, Arati Kreibich’s campaign for Congress in NJ-5 announced filing for the June 2nd primary ballot with 1,289 signatures, more than six times the minimum requirement of 200. The signatures come from all four counties in NJ-5 and were collected by over 60 volunteers.
The filing comes on the heels of the Working Families Party’s endorsement of Arati Kreibich yesterday and represents a continued show of strength and momentum for the campaign. Arati Kreibich released the following statement with the filing:
“I am so proud of our grassroots campaign and all our volunteers for accomplishing this monumental task. Our campaign successfully gathered over 1,200 signatures before ceasing in-person signature gathering in mid-March due to the COVID-19 crisis.
“Since then, our volunteers have pivoted to making calls, sending texts, and reaching out to their personal networks about our campaign to elect a scientist to Congress who will fight for healthcare for all and paid sick leave while refusing corporate PAC donations.”
Dr. Arati Kreibich is a Councilmember in Glen Rock, a neuroscientist, an immigrant, and a mom. She is running for Congress in New Jersey’s 5th District not only because her representative doesn’t honor our Democratic values, but because we live in an exceptional moment and need bold progressive leadership.
