What are the issues?

Legislative races are at the top of the ticket, but that is not what is likely driving voters to the polls.

The issue of parental rights with regards to Gov. Murphy's transgender polices and what is taught in our schools has become the top issue in many races.

The NJEA, the teachers union, has dumped millions of dollars into several school board races.
