  • I am a lifelong Democrat, but I am puzzled at a flyer I just received to re-elect Voss and Ganz for Bergen Co. Freeholder. The back of the flyer touts Bergen County (e.g. George Washington’s Army, Super Bowl). So, what is the point of showing a mug shot of Frank Sinatra, who happened to be arrested in Bergen Co. when he was young? Is that something we should be proud of?
  • Hello!

    My name is John Bingham and I am the President of the College Democrats of New Jersey. As election day is coming fast, I am looking for GOTV/election day opportunities for my membership. While our membership would prefer paid opportunities, we want to get involved in the final push and get Democrats elected!

    Also, we want to push expansion within every county in New Jersey! When I first began my term as President, CDNJ had only five chapters. Today, we have 16 around the state. We did this with partnerships with the Democratic Party- this is what I ask of you.
    Today, I want my members to help get Democrats elected!
    Tomorrow, I want us to organize on college campuses together!

    Wishing you the best,

    John Bingham
  • Hi,

    My name is Michael Murphy and I am the campaign manager for the Bogota Democratic Campaign Committee. We are hoping you can help us.

    We are very worried that our opposition is going to do anything they can to throw this election. We have run a far superior campaign and we know they are getting desperate. We have had legitimate concerns in the past regarding the current Republican administration cheating in two separate elections. The below article discusses the election where our current Mayor came into office (2013) – he won by only a couple dozen votes and hired a Spanish speaking poll worker to vote ‘Republican’ regardless of the instructions of the voter. The only reason the election wasn’t overturned was because the video evidence of the poll worker admitting to throwing the election was inadmissible in court. Based on the actions by the Republican candidates this past week, they will do anything to win this election.

    We are hoping someone can watch our polling stations (or stop by) to ensure that there is nothing out of order taking place and ensure the vote count is legitimate when the polls close. Please let me know if this is something you can help with or who I should reach out to. Thank you.

    Best Regards,

    Michael Murphy

  • Hi Lou,

    The following letter is an idea for an inexpensive G O T V marketing campaign. The songs could also be used by each candidate via their email, facebook and/or their campaign website page. I can email you the mp3s or they are also available for listening at Just hit the play button by #3 and #6.

    I look forward to hearing from you regarding this idea.

    We would like you to help us decide which song you would like to become the New Jersey Democratic State Committee’s theme song.

    “What Will Become of Lady Liberty?” and “Wake Up America” by Bob Wickline, are the songs being voted upon. We feel both songs can help educate voters of the dangers facing the New Jersey they love, inspire them to become more patriotic and motivate them to vote for the Democratic candidate. We realize you’ve probably never heard of these songs or Bob Wickline, but on what radio station in your area would you hear songs that want to educate, inspire and motivate with a political slant?

    We are hoping you will give a listen to the attached mp3s of “What Will Become of Lady Liberty?” and “Wake Up America” and then reply to this email with your vote. Please let us know by Nov 7th, so we can play the most voted for song for all our candidates on election night.

  • I received a phone call from 804-596-9740 from someone purporting to be conducting a survey about politics in NJ and Bergen County. I played along for a while, until the questions started to take on a definite anti-Democratic bias. I termintaed the call. I suspect Republican dirty tricks. Has anyone else had similar experiences?
  • I’ve been a Democrat all my life. But I am really upset at how poor this party has become at many things including communicating properly, being united, having backbone and more. I’d like to speak to someone about this. This part needs a complete reinvention and a lot of back bone!

    Contact me.
  • I would like to speak to someone re: volunteering options and the time required before I send in a form. ( more information in general).
