Dear INSERT UNION Member:

Re: Vote now for Carey Brown - Your Union Endorsed Candidate for Pension Board Trustee

On April 1, 2015, the campaign for Trustee to your pension system (PERS) began. Voting in this election is NOT something you should ignore!  This in an important opportunity for you to support your union endorsed candidate, Carey Brown.

Voting is simple.  You should receive a paper ballot from human resources or your certifying officer between April 1 and April 10, 2015.  After receipt of your ballot, you can then vote either by mail, by calling 888-845-2758 or online, at https://vote.election-america.com/NJState.

Carey Brown is the best choice for public employees, because he will work with our union leaders to fight to hold our elected officials accountable to fund our pensions.  We all depend on our pensions for a secure retirement - so we need to support officials that will fight to ensure they have stable funding – Carey Brown is that official. 

If you would like additional information about Carey, please visit www.njaflcio.org and click on the “Attention State & County Public Employees” banner at the top of the page.  If you have questions about how to vote, or if you haven’t received your ballot by April 10, 2015, e-mail Help+NJPERS@election-america.com or contact your union representative right away.

The deadline to vote is May 31, 2015.  So be sure to make your voice heard!  Vote for Carey Brown today.

In Solidarity,
