In LD 39, Bidwell announces candidacy against Cardinale

From Mahwah, Democrat Jan Bidwell Wednesday formally launched her state Senate campaign in the 39th Legislative District.

“Our district needs a senator who understands the challenges of citizens who are buckling under the burden of high taxes and budget cuts, who are unemployed, who deserve to be paid a fair wage,” said Bidwell, a social worker. “The 39th District deserves a senator who strongly denounces corruption.”

Veteran state Sen. Gerald Cardinale (R-39) is the incumbent.

“My campaign is going to use modern tools to reach out to the voters of the 39th District like no one has before,” Bidwell said. 

Bidwell served as a member of Gov. Jon Corzine’s transition team on Corzine’s Child Welfare Policy Group.

"The governor still has to come to bat."
