Latino Action Network Releases Endorsements for 2019 Assembly Elections

SCOTCH PLAINS: The Latino Action Network (LAN) released its endorsements for the 2019 New Jersey Assembly general elections today. Endorsements were based on candidates’ support of four of our policy issues including stopping the construction of prisons designed for minors, legalization of adult-use cannabis, discriminatory housing policies, and driver’s licenses for the undocumented. In addition, we asked candidates to describe their support for Latino candidates and their work with the Latino community.

“All candidates for the Assembly were given the opportunity to fill out our survey and request our endorsement. Of the candidates who took the time to do so and after lengthy deliberation, the following have received our full support in the November 2019 election,” said Endorsement Committee Chair Cuqui Rivera. “We wish all our candidates the best of luck at the polls!”
