On Tuesday, November 3, 2020 voters in New Jersey will go to the polls to elect the President of the United States, US Senators, Congress, State Legislators and local candidates.
This has been an exceptional year, as HPAE members have faced unprecedented health and safety concerns while battling COVID-19 in their healthcare facilities. HPAE has endorsed candidates who have been on the side of health care workers and patients and have a proven commitment to protecting the interests of patients and workers over the financial interests of large healthcare corporations. It is up to each of us to participate in the very important 2020 general election when registered voters will elect our next President, US Senate and Congress, state and local elections.
Debbie White RN, President of HPAE
Among the issues and votes HPAE members examined were support or opposition of:
- Ensuring the rights of workers to collectively bargain over safety and economic conditions;
- Protecting public employee benefits and pension; and
- Expanding healthcare coverage and access to providers to ensure everyone has access to services that will lead to improvements in health outcomes.
