Atlantic County, New Jersey– Senate Candidate Vince Mazzeo, and Assembly Candidates John Armato and Caren Fitzpatrick receive critical endorsement from the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA). NJEA endorsements signify a candidate’s strong support for public education and are decided regardless of political party, exemplified by the previous endorsement of Senator Chris Brown.
“The NJEA and its Atlantic County chapter are fierce advocates for our children and New Jersey’s top-in-the-nation education system,” said Assemblyman Vince Mazzeo. “I am honored to receive their endorsement and to continue working with their members to ensure Atlantic County schools receive their fair share of funding and that their input is included as schools plan for reopening in the fall.”
“It is an honor to again be endorsed by the NJEA,” said Assemblyman John Armato. “As a union member while an HVAC technician, I understand the importance and strength of NJEA and its Atlantic County chapter as they work together with their school communities to plan safe reopenings this fall so our children can return to in-person education.”
“New Jersey has one of the top education systems in the nation thanks to the hardworking teachers and education professionals in the NJEA and I am proud to have earned their endorsement,” said Atlantic County Commissioner Caren Fitzpatrick. “I look forward to working with NJEA and its membership in the General Assembly to ensure Atlantic County receives its fair share of school funding and that we continue to equip our children with the tools needed for success.”
“NJEA and its members are the driving force of our premier public education system here in New Jersey, and these candidates have earned their support. This endorsement brings to attention the stark differences between Vince Mazzeo and failed candidate Vince Polistina. When Polistina was in the legislature, ten years ago, he sold out our hard working teachers to Chris Christie and refused to support their earned pension funding. Unlike Polistina, Vince Mazzeo, John Armato, and Caren Fitzpatrick believe that it’s the government’s responsibility to pay its bills.” said campaign manager Paul Weborg.
