Volunteer in This Year's Hottest State Assembly Race

Are you tired of being represented by Republicans in the state Assembly? Since 2011, when the state’s voting districts were redrawn, that's been Princeton's sad situation. Our current Assembly representatives are both on Chris Christie's Presidential Leadership Team and have voted in lock-step to support his regressive policies.

Princeton is now in state Legislative District 16 (LD-16), which includes portions of the counties of Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex and Somerset and the municipalities of Branchburg, Delaware, Flemington, Hillsborough, Manville, Millstone (Somerset), Montgomery, Princeton, Raritan (Hunterdon), Readington, Rocky Hill, Somerville, South Brunswick, and Stockton.

The Zwicker/Vella campaign is working hard to win both LD-16 Assembly seats for two progressive Democrats who will stand up to Chris Christie.  This is one of the very few races in the state this year where Democrats can win seats. But we can't do it without your help.  The turnout on November 3 is expected to be very low, so we must reach Democratic voters before then.

There are several easy ways you can start helping right now at the campaign office at the Princeton Shopping Center (the office is on the 2nd floor next to McCaffrey's, past the ballet studio at the end of the hall).

  1. Sit in the office a couple hours regularly during the day as a receptionist. This would free up the campaign staff to get out in the district while keeping the office open. 
  2. Show up any Thursday from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm to make voter turnout calls.  Bring a laptop and cell phone if possible.
  3. Write a letter to the editor - contact Jenny Crumiller at for suggested talking points and media contacts.
  4. Walk door-to-door on weekends to get out the vote among Democrats. Face-to-face contact is key to motivating people. To get started, contact Seth Levin at 410-627-9504 or or drop into the office to get started.

Make a difference! Help elect Andrew Zwicker and Maureen Vella to the New Jersey Assembly!

On Sunday, March 30th between 7:15-9:00 PM, the Princeton Democratic Community Organization (PCDO) met at the Princeton Unitarian-Universalist Church to hold its 2014 Princeton Council Endorsement Meeting.   Nearly 400 people attended the meeting.   The Official Results from Endorsement Vote:   368 Votes Cast (221 Votes Required To Achieve 60% Endorsement Threshold)  
  • Bernie Miller   216 votes
  • Sue Nemeth   197 votes
  • Jo Butler         165 votes
  While none of the candidates will receive the PCDO Endorsement, all three candidates performed very well, and all three surpassed our lower threshold of 40% ensuring them continued support from the PCDO through the 2014 June Primary.
