NOVEMBER 2021 Newsletter
Dear Friends,

Tuesday evening the District 40 Team earned an election victory thanks to your great support and all the good people of the 40th District. I am grateful for the privilege and honor to serve and represent our residents once again down in Trenton.

Voters and parents across the State of New Jersey voices were heard loud and clear. New Jerseyans do not want to be the California of the East Coast. New Jerseyans are resilient, and we made a bold statement on Election Day that was heard across the country. Although Governor Murphy had declared victory, Jack Ciattarelli has not conceded, and all legal votes are still being counted. Mail in ballots can be counted through November 8th so we will not know the official outcome for days to come but on a local level we caused a red wave up and down this great state.

All of us must still do our jobs with the same integrity and hard work to accomplish a brighter future. There is now hope and we just want to thank you once again for your support, and I hope to see you soon!

Kevin J. Rooney
