2013 Candidate Survey

2013 Candidate Survey for NJ Senate & Assembly

Please see your candidates’ answers to ArtPride NJ’s 2013 survey below. This survey was distributed to all incumbent legislators and challengers. View survey

If you do not see your district candidate(s) listed below, he or she did not return a survey.* Want to urge your candidate to say where they stand on the arts? Let us know who is missing and we will contact that candidate again directly, or you can share the survey yourself (see link above). Candidates respond when they know a potential voter is personally interested in an issue.

An asterisk (*) denotes incumbents. Due to limited resources, we did not seek questionnaires from uncontested seats.

ArtPride New Jersey strives to present fair and balanced information from all candidates, and is not providing candidate endorsements.
