Burnishing progressive cred, state Senator Nia Gill (LD-34) today basked in the endorsement of the Essex County chapter of Democracy for America (DFA).
“Essex County DFA is proud to endorse State Senator Nia Gill. Through the ten years of our group's history, we have had numerous occasions to work with her office on issues of great concern, beginning with the effort to reform New Jersey’s voting laws that help ensure every person’s vote is properly counted--- a cause she has championed. Senator Gill is a proven leader and strong advocate for progressive causes in the State Senate. Whether it is the fight to ensure all children have access to a quality public education or demanding equality for all New Jerseyans by twice sponsoring New Jersey’s Marriage Equality Act, Senator Gill stands with progressives throughout the state,” said Katherine Joyce, a leader of the Essex County chapter of Democracy for America. “Especially in the current political climate, it is important that we have a Senator who has long championed progressive causes in the 34th Legislative District and knows how to get things done."
“Being a progressive Democrat means taking action when others won’t. Fighting for progress requires standing up for people who can’t. Today, as always, I stand with the progressive community not simply as a Senator but as a lifelong activist and partner in the fight for social justice, women's rights, access to voting, marriage equality, increased funding for our schools, and the future of this community,” said Gill.
