Sweeney Issues Statement On Latino Voter Mobilization Campaign

TRENTON: Senate President Stephen M. Sweeney (D-Gloucester, Cumberland, Salem) issued the following statement today regarding the formation by community leaders and organizations of the Latino Voter Mobilization Campaign. The Campaign is aimed at increasing Latino voter participation in New Jersey.

“We should encourage any effort by residents of New Jersey to become more involved in their government and the political system. This is especially true in the Latino community, which, as the new Census data has told us, is the largest minority community in New Jersey.

“The 1.5 million Hispanic residents of this state all deserve to have their voices heard by their elected representatives. This mobilization effort will play a large part in ensuring that happens.

“I hope this campaign becomes a great success and will certainly do whatever I can to encourage greater voter registration and participation throughout New Jersey.”
