Donald Norcross’ work speaks volumes. His tireless work of serving the community is characteristic of a true Democrat but he is much more than an everyday politician.

He earns votes from the community; he not only remembers us by name but shares stories and is open to communication. He makes me feel as my voice, my vote and my issues matter to him and his office.

Norcross’ record on the issues of today are unwavering. He is a supporter of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights and civil liberties and notes that freedom of speech and religion and freedom from persecution are important.

He notes that health care reform and maintaining a healthier, informed community makes a powerful nation.

He speaks from experience as a former electrician when he speaks about the national workforce and how no one should have multiple jobs just to keep their head above water.

He speaks straightforwardly about how the key to achieving success in a modern economy is higher education and that students deserve the opportunity to improve their career prospects without becoming burdened by debt.

He takes responsibility for addressing climate change and knows that a sustainable environment is a here-and-now conversation. And that we must preserve and honor the great legacy of our service members, past and present, as a reminder of the values and sacrifice that built our nation.

I believe the direction that Donald Norcross shares with Camden County, Camden City and New Jersey allows it to be a safer place.
