News Roundup for Thursday, Dec. 27, 2018

John Lee of Basking Ridge. Healthcare voter who made sure to show up election day for Tom Malinowski. Maybe his last vote. His cancer is stage 4. 


Fred Snowflack makes a good New Year’s resolution suggestion in this state of decimated newspapers, newly powerful regional activist orgs and local governments where skullduggery and shenanigans sometimes still go on.

How important were healthcare voters in the New Jersey midterms? Washington Post’s Jennifer Miller tracked a Basking Ridge voter with terminal cancer – stage 4 colon cancer – who was determined to get to the polls to vote against Leonard Lance, who’d voted to repeal the ACA.

Newly – and fiercely – passionate about the need for legislation that covered pre-existing conditions, he voted for Tom Malinowski. Reposted by Atlantic City Press
