Christine_Chen.JPGChristine Lui Chen- State Senate Legislative District 23

A proven business leader, Christine is running to serve NJ Senate LD23  Not only is Christine the first Asian-American on the ballot, but she is also the 1st woman to run for this seat in 30 years.  

This is a challenging time in our history and we need strong leadership. We can achieve this through Strong Community - Strong Economy. A Strong Community is one in which we take care of each other, protect open space, make sure we have access to health care and help those with addictions.  A Strong Economy is one in which we invest in infrastructure and find ways to re-purpose abandoned buildings rather than have them sit vacant and deteriorating. 

Since the 2016 election, Christine felt that she could no longer sit on the sidelines and accept the extremism that has plagued our nation.  Christine believes that by infringing on the safety of one, it really breaks apart the safety that we feel for all of us.
