Public/Party service: I hold leadership positions in two grassroots organizations, Action Together NJ and NJ-08 For Progress. Through these groups I’ve helped register voters and organized phone banking, postcarding, and canvasing to help elect a wave of new Democrats to the House in 2018.


Position on good government initiatives:

  1. Would you support reforming New Jersey’s Primary electoral ballots to give all candidates an equal chance of being elected? 
    Yes. 
    I absolutely support getting rid of the line. Our primaries should be determined by everyone registered to the party, not by a handful of people in leadership roles.
  2. Would you support measures to increase voter participation (eg. same-day registration, early voting)? 
    Yes. 
  3. Would you support placing a nonpartisan commission in charge of the legislative redistricting process?  
    No response given.
  4. Would you support ethics reforms that would require broader disclosure on financial information and the release of income taxes by candidates for public office, as a means for regulating campaigns and limiting corruption? 
    Yes. 
  5. Would you support reinstituting the statewide public advocate and making it a directly elected position? 
    No response given.
  6. Would you support changing the nominating process for members of 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? 
    No response given.
  7. Do you support public funding of campaigns for all statewide offices, including the legislature? 
    No response given.
  8. Do you support making the state legislature full-time and prohibiting simultaneous holding of other paid positions? 
    Yes.
