"Kaper-Dale's motto, "The last are first," are words that exemplify his efforts and successes in putting the most vulnerable of our population in the forefront. " I believe the trickle from above can be replaced with well-springs that start at the bottom," says Kaper-Dale. His many accomplishments include:
"Who Is My Neighbor Inc, which brought the community of Highland Park a fair trade store, an after school program, and an affordable summer camp, and is widening its efforts to reach seniors and infants/caregivers.
"RCHP-Affordable Housing Corp. has created housing for women aging out of foster care, homeless Veterans, re-entering citizens, justice-involved youth, chronically homeless mentally ill adults, and refugees. It owns or operates 17 buildings that house 91 tenants in supportive housing.
"Our Revolution/Ocean County believes Seth Kaper-Dale will lead New Jersey to a place where we can all be proud to live. Among the issues Seth Kaper-Dale actively supports is a moratorium on Hurricane Sandy-related foreclosures, single-payer healthcare in NJ, public banking, fair taxation, women's/LGBTQ rights, prison reform, fair and humane treatment of immigrants, and legal treatment of marijuana equal to alcohol or cigarettes.
"Our Revolution will reclaim democracy for the working people of our country by harnessing the transformative energy of the "political revolution." Through supporting a new generation of progressive leaders, empowering millions to fight for progressive change and elevating the political consciousness, Our Revolution will transform American politics to make our political and economic systems once again responsive to the needs of working families.
"Our Revolution has three intertwined goals: to revitalize American democracy, empower progressive leaders and elevate the political consciousness.
Seth Kaper-Dale is a progressive leader."
Kaper-Dale will be on the ballot in the General Election on November 7th.
