This November 5, Verona voters will be asked to choose two representatives to the New Jersey state Assembly from legislative district 26, which stretches across 13 towns in Essex, Morris, and Passaic counties. There are four candidates in this race: Republican incumbents BettyLou DeCroce and Jay Webber, and Democratic challengers Christine Clarke and Verona resident Laura Fortgang.

As we have done with Verona Board of Education and Town Council race in recent years, has questions for these candidates. These questions are intended to elicit their views on key district issues and to help voters understand the candidates’ ability to address these issues if elected. We are partnering on this series with, an independently owned local news site that is also read by voters in the 26th legislative district.

Every Friday until October 25, we will send the four candidates a question that they must respond to by noon on the following Tuesday. The candidates’ responses are listed in the order in which they were received, and have not been edited in any way, whether for grammar, spelling or length.
