Hello FTEA, this is your Monthly Legislative Update!
2017 ELECTION: Phil Murphy won the Democratic Primary for governor with a boost from NJEA members. He’ll face off against Kim Guadagno iNovember.
SUMMER FELLOWSHIP: The NJEA Summer Fellowship Training Program is a paid opportunity to practice member engagement and organizing skills. If you’re interested in a way to grow the association and earn a little money this summer, you can learn more and apply here.
LOBBY DAYS: The state government decides on the annual budget at the end of June. It’s up to us to make sure educators are not shortchanged again! Come to a NJEA Lobby Day to make sure our elected officials hear our voices. Dates are 6/22, 6/26, and 6/29. It’s a fun, meaningful way to kick off your summer!
Feel free to email me with any questions. Keep up the great work!
