Bernie 2020 Rolls out its NJ Campaign Leadership Team

By Insider NJ | March 18, 2019, 9:04 pm |


Three respected New Jersey progressive activists, join forces to helm the New Jersey for Bernie 2020 committee, aimed at electing Vermont Senator, Bernie Sanders, 46th President of the United States.

Larry Hamm, the Chairman of People’s Organization for Progress will serve as Chair; while Patricia Campos Medina a labor and community leader with more than 20 years of grassroots and Barry Brendel, Chair of Our Revolution New Jersey, a grassroots issues, an advocacy organization inspired by Bernie Sanders 2016 campaign, will serve as Vice Chairs.

All three positions are volunteer, and critical in helping build the path towards victory in the Garden State.

“Let me make this clear from the start, we are going to win New Jersey in 2020,” said Hamm.

“Bernie Sanders is right on the pressing issue before us from healthcare to climate change to income inequality. Bernie is right for this country and he is right for New Jersey,” he added. “I’m proud to have Patricia and Barry beside me in this campaign. Patricia has a wealth of experience in issue advocacy, coalition building and grassroots organizing and will be invaluable in delegate candidate recruitment and reaching out to diverse communities and advocacy groups that we feel are essential to the kind of grassroots campaign that Bernie Sanders wants to run in NJ.

“Working families in NJ and across the US are looking for a candidate with a clear understanding of their economic concerns, and Bernie Sanders is someone who has not deviated from his belief that what we need is a fundamental change in our political system so that it serves working people, not billionaires,” stated Campos-Medina. “Bernie has energized young and diverse voters with a message of hope for real economic reform that keeps the promise of America alive for our future generations. I am excited to engage in this grassroots effort to change our country by defeating the Trump politics of fear. We will do it by engaging new voters and building opportunities for young people to participate in the electoral process locally in their communities.”
