Position on good government initiatives:

  1. Would you support reinstituting the statewide public advocate and making it a directly elected position? There are pros and cons to this issue. If I were ever to run for a statewide election, I will make a decision in this regard. For now, I am running for Board of Education in Princeton, NJ.

  4. Would you support changing the nominating process for members of state-wide Commissions and Boards to have panels of nonpartisan experts nominate candidates, with full public disclosure of the candidates’ credentials, and to have the legislature vote on the nominations? Yes.
  5. Would you support placing a nonpartisan commission in charge of the legislative redistricting process? Yes
  6. Would you support instituting public funding for all statewide offices, including the legislature? Yes
  7. Would you support making the state legislature full-time and prohibiting simultaneous holding of other paid positions? Yes
  8. Would you support reforming New Jersey’s Primary electoral ballots to give all candidates an equal chance of being elected? Yes.
