Jefferson Twp., NJ: 26th Legislative District State Assembly candidate Christine Clarke has received the endorsement of the American Federation of Teachers.
“Jay Webber and BettyLou DeCroce are out of touch with Legislative District 26 values and voters who want change to improve education in our state, protect our environment and create good jobs. That’s why we are supporting Democrats Christine Clarke and Laura Fortgang for Assembly—to take decisive action and move New Jersey forward,” said Donna M. Chiera, AFT New Jersey President.

“It’s a privilege to stand beside AFT as we move into these final weeks. We are all in this together on building a better New Jersey,” said Clarke.
Clarke is an environmental advocate, a grassroots organizer and mother-of-four running for State Assembly to advance clean energy jobs, protect clean air and water, improve healthcare, and legislate with empathy and fiscal responsibility.
