Help Put Dr. Alieta Eck on NJ Senate Ballot
Jun 8, 2013
Earlier this week we asked for your help contacting Gov. Christie to ask him to appoint Dr. Alieta Eck. Despite the huge number of call, emails, and petitions in support of Dr. Eck the Governor has appointed someone else. HOWEVER... Due to the large show of support for Dr. Alieta Eck an effort is underway to get her name placed on the ballot for the special August primary election for Senate. Getting Dr. Eck on the ballot requires 1,000 signatures by this MONDAY. This can be done but she needs your help ASAP.
If you are a registered Republican in the state of New Jersey here's how you can help:
