PALMYRA – New Jersey State Sen. Troy Singleton announced on social media Tuesday he is running for re-election to District 7 district seat.
This will be Singleton’s first defense of the seat he won in 2017 after former Sen. Diane Allen returned. Singleton handily won the Senate seat beating Republican John Brown then with 65% of the vote.
“The hardships facing our great state of New Jersey are growing,” Singleton said in a statement Tuesday. “Issues I care deeply about – like economic empowerment, eradicating food insecurity, expanding housing opportunities, and keeping our children safe from gun violence seem like they are challenged at every turn.
“Republicans and their far right agenda present more obstacles in the path of progress than ever before. Their resources have only grown while so many of our constituents have suffered through this pandemic. But then again – I’ve never been one to back down from a challenge.
“I want to make sure you know that I am running for re-election. I REFUSE to stop fighting for change just because it’s difficult,” he said.
Singleton has been part of the New Jersey legislature since 2011, winning a seat in the New Jersey Assembly with running mate Dr. Herb Conaway. He won re-election in 2013 and 2015 before winning his Senate seat in 2017.
He call on supporters to contribute to his re-election campaign.
“I know times are tough, but if you are able to contribute to my re-election campaign, it would mean the world to me,” Singleton said. “The fight isn’t always fair – but because of supporters like you we will persevere.
