>

(Morristown) – October 1st, 2010 – On Friday, the New Jersey Education Association’s 125-member political action committee voted to endorse Douglas Herbert for Congress in New Jersey’s Eleventh Congressional District. Douglas Herbert is the only New Jersey Congressional challenger that they chose to endorse. Doug said, “I am pleased and honored to be endorsed by the NJEA, an organization that has always fought for New Jersey’s students, teachers, and families. If elected, I will be the strongest advocate to make New Jersey’s public education the best in the world. The fact that I am the only challenger endorsed by the NJEA is a testament to the movement we have built in the Eleventh District.”

Barbara Keshishian, the NJEA President, said, “Each of our endorsed candidates has distinguished himself or herself by advocating for great public schools, public school employees, and for the 1.4 million New Jersey schoolchildren our members educate.”

Douglas Herbert who is running against eight-term incumbent Rodney Frelinghuysen said, “My opponent has neglected his responsibility to the students of this District by consistently standing againstprograms, which would have helped them. As a father of three, I know that it is vital that we keep our educational system strong. I will not make a political gamble or place personal ambition above our children’s well-being and America’s ability to compete in the global marketplace.”
