NJ GENERAL ELECTION IS TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 2ND
Dear Raritan Township Democratic Club Members,
The year 2020 has been a very difficult year for all of us. Social distancing, quarantine, sickness and even death have dominated our thoughts and actions. We have been unable to assemble and enjoy the camaraderie of our fellow members but instead are forced to hold virtual meetings. We feel we are distanced from those we care about. At times it can be very disheartening.
However, the year has not been all a disappointment. We re-elected our Congressman, our Senator and elected a new President and Vice President of the United States. These are certainly accomplishments that we can be proud of. With those accomplishments as a motivator, we need to continue the hard work to bring about more successful elections in 2021. Governor Murphy and Lt Governor Sheila Oliver are up for re-election and Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker has announced his intentions to oppose State Senator Kip Bateman. So, you can see 2021 is an important year for Democrats and we will need all the help we can get to make it another successful year.
A month ago, the executive committee met and discussed plans for the next year. We are not sure that all the residents of the township know that we exist We all agreed that the club needs to be more visible in the township. We need to get more involved in the community by attending township committee meetings, working with various charities and helping the residents with their issues. We need to let the residents know we are working for the residents and the good of the township. It is up to all of us.
With that said we want to wish all of you a Safe, Happy Holiday Season and pray that we can all look forward to some light at the end of the tunnel in 2021. Be well!
The Executive Committee of the Raritan Township Democratic Club,
John, Raina, Karen, Marianne, Michael and Lois

"We must adjust to changing times and still hold to unchanging principles."
President Jimmy Carter
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
President Barack Obama
"The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all."
President John F Kennedy
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
"I really want women to know their power, to value their experience. To understand that nothing has been more wholesome in the political process than the increased involvement of women."
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
" My first responsibility — today and tomorrow — is to make sure that every single person who’s hurting in my congressional district gets help. That’s number one. But I would be betraying their trust in me if I wasn’t also thinking about tomorrow and next year and the next decade.”
Congressman Tom Malinowski
