Bishop Dr. Reginald T. Jackson wants Mark Alexander to be the next 34th District state senator.
“I am endorsing Mark Alexander for the New Jersey State Senate because we need energized, independent leaders who can fight for our children and make our state a more fair and just place,” said Bishop Jackson. “I’ve known Mark Alexander for nearly a decade and worked with him on numerous issues that are important to me, the members of my church, and to families across New Jersey. He is an honest and trustworthy man of character, and has the drive and energy needed to bring new leadership to Trenton. Mark understands the importance of education and investing in our children. As an educator himself and Policy Director to President Obama, I know Mark can lead the way in Trenton on education reform and so many other important issues being debated in Trenton.”
“I am humbled and honored to receive Bishop Jackson’s support for my campaign to bring independent leadership to the 34th District,” stated Alexander. “As the son of parents who fought on the front lines of the Civil Rights movement, I know firsthand how important Bishop Jackson’s contribution to our society has been. I look forward to working with him in the coming years to make our schools more effective, strengthening our urban communities, and fighting for working class families in the 34th District.”
Bishop Jackson is a leading New Jersey backer of the Opportunity Scholarship Act, a pilot program for vouchers.
