Election Center 2019

On Tuesday, November 5, 2019 voters in New Jersey will go to the polls to elect State Legislators and local candidates. In Philadelphia, voters will head to the ballot box to vote on municipal candidates.

Throughout this election season we hope you will visit Election Center 2019, where you can learn more about:

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.

For more information on COPE and the endorsement process please contact Jean Pierce, HPAE Public Policy Staff at jpierce@hpae.org.
