TIRELESSLY FIGHTING FOR MIDDLE-CLASS FAMILIES AND SENIORS
Assemblyman Herb Conaway is a doctor and Air Force veteran committed to keeping our families safe. As the only physician serving in the Assembly and former Captain in the United States Air Force Medical Corps, Herb is a leading voice against Trump’s efforts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. As Chairman of the Health and Senior Services Committee, Herb has also authored landmark legislation to combat the opioid epidemic, and has been a strong proponent of tax relief and veteran’s rights.
AssemblywomanCarol Murphy is a hard-working advocate devoted to making a difference in South Jersey.
