Labor Day Walk for Citizens with Disabilities

Elected officials at the federal, State, County and local levels, along with the parents and families of people with disabilities will engage in the “Fourth Annual Labor Day Walk for Citizens with Disabilities” at the Rutherford Labor Day Street Fair on Monday, Sept. 5, 2016.

The families will assemble at the corner of Ames Ave. and Park Ave. in Rutherford at 11:00 am, when the march will begin. At the event, the parents and families will be available to discuss their concern about what they believe to be dwindling resources and a weakened public policy regarding the quality of life for people with disabilities.

The Annual marchers have included United States Senator Corey Booker (Pictured Below at the 2013 Labor Day Walk) and United States Congressman Bill Parscrell (Pictured Below at the 2014 Labor Day Walk). All advocates for Citizens with Disabilities are encouraged to join us.

Recently in the News:

Bipartisan inaction is preventing New Jersey’s Election Law Enforcement Commission from doing its job.  Both Governor Chris Christie and Senate President Steven Sweeney appear to be dragging their feet. They’re neglecting to appoint enough ELEC commissioners to allow the watchdog agency to act.

Well over 100 Dems took part in Sunday’s Sussex/Warren Democratic picnic at Sand Bar Park in Hackettstown.  Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop also took part in the event.

The Sussex County Republican establishment appears to be “all-in” supporting Donald Trump for President. And that may end up hurting Sussex County.
