school and community activities. Letters concerning their character and
contributions, charity work outside the school, and helping beyond normal
expectations are also considered in the application process.
PLEASE GIVE US YOUR SUPPORT IN THIS ANNUAL FUND DRIVE.
Make your tax-deductible checks payable to the “FTEA Philanthropic Fund”.

Good Afternoon FTEA Members,
On Tuesday, October 17th, the FTEA has volunteered its services to help re-elect Andrew Zwicker and have his running mate, Roy Freiman, be elected for Legislative District 16.
I am asking for volunteers to assist us by simply dedicating some of your time to make phone calls to the public.
We have arranged to meet in Somerville at 141 West Main Street from 5:00pm – 8:00pm. Any amount of time that you can dedicate will be greatly appreciated!
Both of these men are married to teachers and know firsthand the struggle our profession has taken over the years. They want to help seek relief for Chapter 78, ensure that the state fully funds its obligations to schools and to its employees, and they support legislation that would give ESPs protection against subcontracting.
Legislative District 16 includes the following; Branchburg, Delaware, Flemington, Hillsborough, Manville, Millstone (Somerset), Montgomery, Princeton, Raritan (Hunterdon), Readington, Rocky Hill, Somerville, South Brunswick, and Stockton.
Politics matters!!! What happens in other towns, districts, and counties matters!!!
Please use the link below to register for our phone banking on Tuesday, October 17th.
Thank you and I will see you there.
Mr. Daniel Mayer
