The Impact of Political Machines in NJ and Why Advancing a Progressive Agenda in the State Legislature Isn’t Working

June 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Please join us for a special meeting sponsored by the Princeton Community Democratic Organization and co-sponsored by several central NJ progressive groups:

“The Impact of Political Machines in NJ and Why Advancing a Progressive Agenda in the State Legislature Isn’t Working.”  

Monday, June 17, 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm)
Suzanne Patterson Center, 45 Stockton Road, Princeton

With recent news including the budget battles in Trenton, the growing EDA scandal, and  the Norcross lawsuits against Gov Murphy, Democrats and progressives generally need to understand how machine politics is an obstacle to our efforts to elect progressive politicians and pass progressive policies.  This will be an informational session with the focus on some basic questions around machines and corruption in Trenton –

·  Who is the machine?

·  How do they work?

·  Why should we care?

·  What can we do about it?  

Panelists:

Julia Rubin — Good Government Coalition of NJ 

Sue Altman – Working Families of NJ
