The Issues

Read the questions HPAE asked the candidates and reviewed by HPAE Committee on Political Education and State Executive Committee (SEC) members to guide them in voting on which candidates to endorse for Election 2017. Read the questions highlighting the issues important to HPAE members.

As a union of healthcare professionals, we must stand with candidates who will go to Trenton with a determination to protect healthcare workers and our patients throughout New Jersey. Many of these candidates have stood by HPAE workers on picket lines, at public events or have written letters supporting the rights of healthcare workers and patients. Now it’s our turn to support them and their candidacy.
