Eve Robinson: Making History in the 27th Legislative District
Our nation is currently facing a frightening rise in antisemitism. The trend of attacks on synagogues, such as the attempted firebombing of Temple Ner Tamid in Bloomfield, the place where my children celebrated their b'not mitzvah, and other threats against religious freedom starkly remind us that we must be vigilant in combating hate in all its forms.
In the diverse and dynamic community I have called home for over 30 years, I am proud that, with your vote, I will be the first Jewish woman to hold office in the 27th Legislative District.
Our ticket is a true reflection of the diversity of the 27th District. This distinct and vibrant region, encompassing Montclair, Clifton, West Orange, Livingston, Roseland, and Millburn, deserves representatives who understand our challenges and are committed to fostering a robust and inclusive community. We will continue the work started by Senator Gill to ensure access and a voice for all the citizens in our community.
My parents taught me these words from our ancestors: “You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.” I am committed to working tirelessly for our community, ensuring the safety and well-being of all, and giving a voice to the multi-cultural citizenry of New Jersey’s 27th Legislative District.
In confronting the rising tide of antisemitism, I will work on enhancing security measures for religious institutions and strengthening hate crime legislation to hold perpetrators accountable. Moreover, I will advocate for implementing educational programs that promote awareness, tolerance, and understanding of our neighbors. By addressing the root causes of hate and prejudice, we can foster a more inclusive and supportive environment for all.
We have witnessed the power of diverse voices in politics. The election of women, people of color, and individuals from various faith traditions have added depth and nuance to our political discourse. In the 27th District, we have a unique opportunity to add another voice to that chorus and provide a historic seat at the table to a currently underrepresented community.
As a woman and a mother to two incredible daughters, I believe in the importance of women’s voices in shaping our political landscape. The perspective and experiences of women from all levels of society are essential to building a more just and equitable New Jersey.
Drawing from my education, advocacy, and child welfare background, I bring the perspective and experiences we need in Trenton to tackle the issues our community faces head-on. My upbringing has instilled in me a strong sense of a caring community, social involvement, and a commitment to repairing the world—values that will guide my work as a legislator.
Throughout this campaign, I have been inspired by the strength and resilience of our community. From Clifton’s bustling streets to Livingston’s quiet neighborhoods, I see families, businesses, and organizations working together to create a better future for our children.
Our District is a testament to the power of unity and diversity, and I am committed to fostering that spirit in the New Jersey Assembly. In the face of adversity, we must always stand together as a community. Our responsibility is to combat hatred, bigotry, and discrimination wherever possible.
As your representative in the New Jersey Assembly, I promise to champion policies that promote inclusivity, equity, and justice. I will work tirelessly to ensure that every resident of the 27th District is heard, respected, and valued.
Our campaign is built on the foundation of community, accountability, and progress. Working together, we can overcome our challenges and create a thriving, inclusive environment for everyone who calls the 27th District home. I ask for your support.
