In Montclair, NJ Citizen Action Backs Spiller, Price Abrams, And Russo

Insider NJ — May 12, 2020

This year there is an election for Montclair Mayor and Council. New Jersey Citizen Action firmly believes that progress begins at the local level. That is why we are proud to announce that the NJCA Political Action Committee (PAC) is endorsing Sean Spiller, Vice President of the New Jersey Education Association, for Montclair Mayor, Lori Price Abrams, long time NJCA At-large Board Member for 3rd Ward Councilor, and Bob Russo, Councilor At Large, in this year's municipal election on May 12, 2020.

All three of these candidates have demonstrated an enduring commitment to progress, justice, and equality. They stood with New Jersey Citizen Action to help lead the fight for mandatory paid sick leave in Montclair. Sean Spiller, during his time on the Council, has been a champion for progressive causes, like fighting for a $15.00 minimum wage and investing in Montclair's parks, infrastructure, pre-K, and public libraries. Lori Price Abrams has a long record of commitment to improving the lives of others. She served as the founding Vice President of Social Justice at Temple Ner Tamid, is a founding board member of Emerge NJ, an organization that trains and encourages Democratic women to run for office, get elected and to seek higher office, and serves as At Large Board Member of New Jersey Citizen Action. Bob Russo, Treasurer of AFT Local 6025 at Montclair State University, has supported the Millionaire's Tax and reform of the give-a-ways of NJ EDA funds, while working for Earned Sick Leave, a $15 Minimum Wage, and rent control in Montclair.

During these challenging times, we need leaders who not only get things done, but also govern with compassion. Sean, Lori, and Bob will serve Montclair residents well. Remember to vote for them on Line C on your Vote By Mail ballot, and be sure to complete your ballot before May 12, 2020!
