(Sparta, NJ) –The Northwestern NJ Democratic Women’s Caucus announced today that the grand opening of its headquarters, located at 10 Green Road in Sparta, will be open to supporters on October 27th at 2 p.m.
The Women’s Caucus, formed by Leslie Meyer-Huhn and Jamie Lombardi, aspires to get more women involved in politics, particularly on the local level. To that end, and as part of the grand opening festivities on Sunday, The Women’s Caucus will be hosting a phone bank for Senator Barbara Buono’s gubernatorial campaign.
Meyer-Huhn, who was compelled to run for office after Christie’s education cuts devastated many of Sparta’s programs, said she’s been inspired by Senator Buono’s courage in taking on Christie. “Christie gets a lot of credit for taking on the teacher’s union,” she said, “but the reality is that New Jersey’s schools are some of the best in the nation. Nothing that’s wrong with our schools can be fixed by scapegoating teachers; it can only be fixed by addressing the terrible effects of growing up in poverty—which has only gotten worse under this governor.”
