I urge all Highland Park voters to re-elect our 18th District Assembly members Robert Karabinchak and Nancy Pinkin on Nov. 5. They have consistently advocated for issues that are of concern to Highland Park’s diverse community, including voting in favor of state aid for nursing, security and technology for non-public schools. They have worked to secure state funding for much-needed road repairs. They have also courageously stood up against baseless anti-Israel discrimination. Assembly member Pinkin was a primary sponsor of the law that now prohibits New Jersey state pension and annuity funds from being invested in companies that participate in the discriminatory Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel and Israeli businesses. Both Assembly members voted in favor of AJR160, which affirmed the historical connection of the Jewish people to Jerusalem, and condemned efforts by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization to deny Jews’ historical, religious and cultural ties to Jerusalem. On election day, please join me in voting for Robert Karabinchak and Nancy Pinkin, who can be counted on to represent Highland Park’s interests in the New Jersey State Assembly.

Highland Park Borough Council Member
