Statement of Assemblywoman Aura Dunn

By David Wildstein, November 13 2020 7:15 pm


“In a year when a record number of Republican women were elected to Congress from across the country, I’m proud and humbled to be selected by the voters to add another female legislator ready to get things done for us in Trenton.”

“I’m pleased that voters embraced the bipartisan message Senator Bucco and I ran on, and endorsed my long professional career advocating for children, military families, and vital educational programs like Sesame Street. As someone who was born on Medicaid and raised on food stamps, I know I have a special responsibility in Trenton for the countless number of struggling families across New Jersey who need a voice from someone who has walked in their shoes. I pledge to always be a voice for affordability, and to always have their back.”

“I want to thank the endless stream of volunteers and supporters of our campaign, our staff, as well as my family who have sacrificed so much over the last year. I’m proud of the campaign Tony and I ran, building a grassroots campaign that pulled together so many people who are as much of a part of this victory as I am. Finally, I want to thank Ms. Draeger and wish her the best in the future.”

“With the campaign behind us, I’m ready to get my full focus back to helping families and businesses navigate and survive the pandemic, and continue working across the aisle as I have already done on issues like mental health and preservation of vital services provided by our schools.”
