Today more than ever we should realize the power of our vote.  We can blame Russia, or Trump supporters or Sanders/Stein voters, but the bottom line is 231,556,622 registered voters stayed home in 2016.  We cannot let that happen again in 2018 – the stakes are too high.                                                                                                                            Do you work long hours and can’t make it to the polls?  Is your polling place too far??  Is it raining???

NO MORE EXCUSES!!  Please download this form, complete it, mail it (or take it in person) to the County Board of Elections and you will receive a ballot on or after September 22, 2018. Just complete the ballot (making sure you vote for me) and send it in – no postage necessary!


and if you are not yet registered to vote:


Author: Maureen Leidy

I am a proud resident of Ventnor and a member of the Ventnor Democrats and the South Jersey Democratic Women’s Forum. I am a single mother of four adult children, and grandmother to seven. When I am not working, I’m either calling my congressmen, signing petitions or marching in the streets. When I was approached to run, my inclination was to decline, but my daughter bluntly told me, “Put your money where your mouth is. If you don’t run, you are a hypocrite.” As much as I hated to admit it, she was right. So I am running to give a voice to those Atlantic County residents, who, like myself live paycheck to paycheck; who have struggled with the disease of addiction in their family; who have nowhere to turn when they are facing abuse and harassment. I am running to keep our beaches clean and our roads free of flooding. I am running to ensure your children and grandchildren can go to school without fear and receive a quality education. I am running so that my daughters and yours have access to Planned Parenthood. I am running so that all of us, male or female, are treated fairly and paid equally in the workplace. I know it’s an uphill battle, but I’ve always been a fighter. I will fight for your vote and I will fight for the ideals and values that the people of Atlantic County believe in – a safe, affordable community that we are proud to call home.
