NJREA President, Pat Provnick urges our membership to give this pension problem a face by telling your story to your legislators. Let them know that who you are, that you are a voter, that you live and spend in your community, that you pay taxes and what will happen to you and your family if the pension system collapses and you have to live on social security.  To do this you need to visit, call or
write to your legislator?

Ever wonder how candidates are chosen by NJEA PAC?  Questionnaires are given to all candidates for their response; candidate interviews are held by each county screening committee; and candidate's voting records are examined.  Then the recommended candidates are sent to the NJEA PAC Operating Committee.  This committee is composed of both active and retired members.  Each local screening committee must be ready to defend its decision about their candidates.  Endorsements are gained only by a majority vote of the Operating Committee.   
PAC is power! Read some facts about PAC here.
