Friends, there are only a few days left before the NJ Democratic Primary Election on Tuesday, June 7. We need campaign volunteers to help Bernie Sanders win NJ and California and become the Democratic Party’s 2016 Presidential Candidate and go on to win the US Presidency. Bernie’s goodness will easily triumph over Trump’s hatred.

You can vote for Bernie if:
1 You are an undeclared voter: that is, registered to vote but not affiliated with any political party. You declare Democratic Party affiliation by voting for a Democratic candidate and can file to become undeclared again once the election is over.
2 Or if you are a registered Democrat.

And everybody can volunteer to help win this campaign!

If you would like to volunteer in the Bergen County area call Ari M at 201-956-0864. He runs Bernie’s Englewood office. Volunteers are needed for phone banking, door to door canvassing and literature distribution. Down below see contact information for the Newark and Morristown offices too.

Remember to cast your vote on June 7! Bernie’s ballot position varies according to where you live, so just look carefully to make sure you’re voting for Bernie. Ask a polling station employee for help if you need it.

My son Ivan and I are Bernie Delegates in NJ Legislative Districts (LDs) 37 and 38 which include Hawthorne in Passaic County and the Bergen County towns listed below. In our LDs you vote Column 1, Line 1 for Bernie Sanders and when you vote for Bernie, you’re voting for us too. The four Bernie Delegates in our LDs are: Kim Wei (me), Jorge I. Gomez Wei, Mauro Camporeale and Natalie Delgado.

These are the towns in NJ Legislative Districs 37 & 38:

In Bergen County: Alpine, Bogota, Cresskill, Englewood, Englewood Cliffs, Fort Lee, Hackensack, Leonia, Northvale, Palisades Park, Rockleigh, Teaneck, Tenafly, Bergenfield, Fair Lawn, Glen Rock, Hasbrouck Heights, Lodi, Maywood, New Milford, Oradell, Paramus, River Edge, Rochelle Park, Saddle Brook. And Hawthorne in Passaic County.

Voting for Bernie automatically elects the Bernie delegates to support him as his crew at the Democratic National Convention, which takes place in Philadelphia this July. You can see the names of Bernie’s DNC Delegates on the ballot below Bernie’s name. He has several delegates in each LD.

Residents of Newark and LD 34 & 35: your volunteer contact is Darryl White 646-509-0518. There’s a rally in Newark at 11am Sat 04 June. Meet outside Penn Station to march and canvass, or call Darryl.

Morristown area residents: to volunteer contact Ed Correa 973-723-4945.

If you have any questions call or text me 862-203-8814.

Ivan Wei and Kimi Wei were selected as pledged Bernie Sanders delegates to the Democratic National Convention and need you to sign our petition!

The way this works, is that selected delegates need to collect petition signatures from registered Democrat voters in a Delegate District (DD), which is a combination of two New Jersey Legislative Districts (LD). Our Delegate District is 19, which encompasses LDs 37 and 38. You sign one petition for all of the Bernie delegates in the DD, which in our case is 4 people.

If you live in one of these municipalities, are a registered voter who is also registered as a Democrat, please come see us at one of these locations to sign our petition or call us to arrange another convenient time and place. Ivan 201-688-0036 Kimi 862-203-8814.

NJ Legislative District 37 (Bergen County) includes municipalities:
Alpine, Bogota, Cresskill, Englewood, Englewood Cliffs, Fort Lee, Hackensack, Leonia, Northvale, Palisades Park, Rockleigh, Teaneck, Tenafly

NJ Legislative District 38 (Bergen and Passaic Counties) includes municipalities:
Bergenfield, Fair Lawn, Glen Rock, Hasbrouck Heights, Hawthorne, Lodi, Maywood, New Milford, Oradell, Paramus, River Edge, Rochelle Park, Saddle Brook

Ivan or I will be at these locations collecting signatures to become a Bernie Sanders delegate. Please come over and sign our petition (it’s one petition for all 19th District delegates) – or call us. Ivan 201-688-0036, Kimi 862-203-8814.

We’re also collecting petitions to make sure Bernie is on the primary ballot in New Jersey which any registered New Jersey Dem can sign.

Bernie Sanders wants US Post Offices to offer banking services for billions in profit

U.S. Uncut reports that Bernie Sanders wants us to turn US Post Offices into banks. This makes sense when too many low-income Americans are cut off from essential banking services – like cashing payroll checks – either because of personal financial history or because banks won’t locate branches in their neighborhoods. The disenfranchised will save with easy access to low-cost, basic banking services and the USPS will win with a major infusion of needed revenue.

In a radio interview with Ed Schultz on Wednesday, Sanders explained just how much revenue this could generate for the USPS as (it continues) to battle back from the brink of extinction.

“A new report from the Postal Service suggests one way the agency could make as much as $8.9 billion in annual revenue would be to offer limited banking services like cashing checks and selling pre-paid debit cards. The USPS already takes in more than $100 million in revenue each year by selling postal money orders. One of the areas we should be looking at is banking.”

In May 2015, Wall Street Journal reporter Laura Stevens quotes from a USPS Office of Inspector General report, which points out that incorporating a banking model into operations could be done by simply customizing one of the successful models already in use at a postal agency in another country.

On average, (postal agencies) in industrialized countries generated 14.5% of revenues from financial services in 2012, according to the report.
