Grassroots Activists Weigh In For Currie

More than a dozen grassroots progressive activists have endorsed John Currie for re-election as Democratic State Chairman.

Among the activists backing Currie are New Jersey CWA state director Hetty Rosenstein, New Jersey Working Families Alliance executive director Analilia Mejia, Action Together New Jersey executive director Winn Khuong, NJ 11th for Change executive director Saily Avelenda, Blue Wave NJ chair Marcia Marley and New Jersey Citizen Action executive director Phyllis Salowe-Kaye.

"The push to unseat Democratic Party Chairman Currie is a clear continuation of the redistricting power grab and attempt to fully control the 2019 redistricting process that grassroots activists defeated just a week ago," the group said in a statement.

Also backing Currie: Sue Altman of South Jersey Women for Progressive Change; Alison Arne of Action Together Atlantic County; Catherine Brienza of JOLT Ridgewood; Elizabeth Glynn and Margaret Illes of NJ 7 Forward; Jessica Shaw of SOMA Action; Madeline Trimble of Indivisible NJ 5th District; and Anna Wong of Action Together, NE Region.
