NJEA Members Deserve A #CleanCampaign

This petition had 59 supporters

We, the undersigned NJEA members, demand and deserve a clean campaign from all candidates running for state and county office.  A clean campaign is defined as one in which the candidates and their respective camps adhere to all rules and guidelines established by the NJEA Elections Committee.

Specifically, we demand that all candidates immediately cease and desist the use of school district emails for campaigning purposes, a practice which violates the Acceptable Use policy of every school district in the state, creates potential for employees who respond or interact with such emails to be disciplined, and breeds hostility toward the NJEA and their local affiliates in members as well as the non-members who are receiving these messages.

We call on the Elections Committee to take swift and decisive action in this election and in all future elections against any candidate who engages in such tactics.  NJEA Membership will no longer tolerate such reckless disregard for the members whose votes they seek.

Finally, we pledge not to support any candidate who willfully engages in such divisive behavior.
