(East Orange) – In a sign of significant momentum for the East Orange Team for Change, Lester Taylor and his team of council candidates today filed petitions with close to 4,000 signatures of registered voters, including 3,000 for Lester Taylor, assuring their positions on the June 4th Democratic primary ballot. Easily surpassing the 100 signatures required for a mayoral candidate and 25 signatures required for council candidates to get on the ballot, the Lester Taylor team is showing that their message of change is resonating with East Orange voters.
“Our campaign is gathering energy and we are going to continue working hard and talking to voters about the ways we are going to improve the quality of life for our families,” said Lester Taylor. “It’s time for a change and we are committed to reducing crime by creating an open dialogue between residents and police, holding the line on taxes and creating good jobs by revitalizing our business districts and working with parents, teachers and administrators to bring new ideas to our classrooms to fix our schools and ensure a brighter future for our children.”
“Lester Taylor is out in the street every single day talking to commuters on their way to work at the train station, seniors in community centers, shoppers in our business districts and homeowners on their doorsteps,” said City Council Chairwoman Quilla E. Talmadge, chairwoman of the Lester Taylor for Mayor campaign. “This is a real grassroots campaign and East Orange voters are responding to our efforts because they want change and they know Lester Taylor is the only candidate who is going to deliver results.”
The East Orange Team for Change is comprised of Lester Taylor for Mayor, Chris James (First Ward), Romal Bullock (Second Ward), Councilman Ted Green (Third Ward), Tyshammie Cooper (Fourth Ward) and Councilwoman Alicia Holman (Fifth Ward).
