Garnet R. Hall for Assembly! Women Helping Women!
She supported our elections, now we’re supporting her election!
The Primary Election is June 6th, Tuesday!
Garnet R. Hall is campaigning for election to the NJ General Assembly from the 28th District. The 28th NJ Legislative District will include Maplewood and South Orange, along with Irvington, the South and West Wards of Newark, and Hillside.
Garnet has a distinguished career in corporate management, and in government. For the last several years, she has served all of Essex County by providing constituent services as Deputy Clerk to Essex County Clerk, Christopher J. Durkin, and has been instrumental in securing access to the right to vote for all Essex County residents.
As Vice-Chair of the Maplewood Democratic County Committee, Garnet is instrumental in Getting Out the Vote and Educating the public, especially encouraging voters to vote by mail.
With Garnet, Maplewood and South Orange will be represented by a NJ Assemblywoman who is committed to each and every voter in both our towns, and who is passionate about goals to make our towns the best place to live and work. She is sincere, energetic and most of all a person of and for the people.
A life-long Essex County resident, Garnet and her husband George have lived in Maplewood for 35 years where their children were educated in the SOMSD schools. They continue Garnet’s legacy of serving others within their careers as a police officer and a nurse.
In her professional life as well as in her volunteering, Garnet is laser focused on doing the best possible for each of us and lifting up the people in her community. Her emphasis on solving problems, her ability to deeply listen, and her mindset focused on service, will continue to bring our towns a dedicated, competent representative in the NJ legislature, as Mila M. Jasey retires.
There are 3 ways to vote: by mail, early in-person or at the polls on June 6th. Find the information you need here: https://www.essexclerk.com/_Content/pdf/GUIDE-TO-VOTING-PRIMARY-2023.pdf
