Pamela Fadden is running for election to the New Jersey Assembly in the 26th District, which includes municipalities such as Montville, Parsippany-Troy Hills, and West Caldwell.
Pamela is the President and Lead Negotiator of the Hawthorne Teachers’ Association and has held these positions, in addition to full time teaching and parenting, for five years. As the President of Hawthorne Teachers’ Association, Pamela started an extracurricular STEAM Program that focuses on product design, engineering, and commitment to the environment. She is raising two daughters and is committed to ensuring a safe environment for all of our children and grandchildren.
Pamela Fadden and her running mate Melissa Brown Blaeuer are running against an incumbent assemblyman who holds one the lowest lifetime voting records in the Assembly — a putrid 34%. This assemblyman has also opposed crucial environmental legislation such as the Plastic Pollution Reduction Act, and he voted against the first-in-the-nation comprehensive environmental justice legislation known as the Cumulative Impacts Bill, which was hailed as a turning point in helping mitigate the disproportionate effects of pollution in low-income, predominantly Black and Brown communities. In addition to voting NO on these two bills, the assemblyman has a history of opposing many other environmental priority bills such as the Clean Energy Act, the Global Warming Response Act, and legislation that would uphold the International Paris Agreement on Climate Change. The assemblyman has often shared dangerous and irresponsible anti-mask rhetoric on his social media account during the pandemic and messaging disparaging the Black Lives Matter movement. This is why we urge you to vote for Pamela Fadden and Melissa Brown Blaeuer, whom we've proudly endorsed for Assembly in the 26th District.
