Rich Dennison For New Jersey State Senate

Just north of my home in Camden County is the 7th district, a district which stretches from western Burlington County slightly north and westward and which trends Democratic. For years, this district has been represented by a Bush Republican, Diane Allen, who is hardly a leader in the New Jersey state senate and who didn't bother to vote in support of expanding stem cell lines and for civil unions for gays and lesbians.

Rich Dennison, a Democrat from Florence, N.J., would provide a new voice for 7th district voters and is much more in tune with their political views than Allen. Though Dennison's platform is still being honed, he is particularly strong in the area of health care, and I think he shares my vision of universal, single-payer health care for all; further, as someone who works in public education, I value Dennison's commitment to this institution and know that he'd work hard for teachers and students in Trenton.

I'll post more on Dennison as we get closer to the November election, but some further information on him can be found here:
Dennison, a former Clinton speechwriter,and a local resident with strong community ties, is the right person for state senate and can win this race.
