Since State Representative John Kowalko announced his retirement in January, we have been waiting for a candidate to step forward to run. We finally got the first candidate to come forward this week. Community advocate Cyndie Romer launched her campaign on Wednesday.
Here is her announcement:
On Wednesday, March 30, 2022, Newark mom and community advocate Cyndie Romer launched her campaign to become the next State Representative for the 25th District.
An IT professional at Diamond Technologies, Romer is a working mother of two teenagers, Leah and Megan. She and her husband have lived in Newark for nearly
twenty years, where they are both active in the community.
“I am passionate about creating strong schools that strive to serve every student,” says Romer. “I serve as the parent lead for Newark Charter’s Equity Champions Group. As a Newark Charter School parent, I am very proud of our school, but I have also seen first-hand the inequities that exist in our school district. We must lift up our public schools so that every child can receive a world-class education.”
In addition to her education advocacy work, Romer is an active member of Moms Demand Action and the Newark Branch of the NAACP. She is deeply passionate about women’s issues, LGBTQ+ equality, criminal justice reform and true racial justice.
