Vote Montclair is a grass-roots, non-partisan “good government” organization aimed at countering the murky insider politics that dominates civic life in the Township.
It is a registered New Jersey CPC (Continuing Political Committee), meaning it can advocate for legislation and endorse candidates. By law it has two officers (chairman Erik D’Amato and treasurer Clifford M. Kulwin) but in practice is a loose collective of citizens. It is happy to accept donations from supporters, provided they are individuals who live in Montclair. Note that donations are non tax-deductible.
If you’d like to be publicly listed as a supporter of Vote Montclair or offer a testimonial, or otherwise get in touch, give us a shout at email@example.com.

“As a long-term resident and a local public education advocate, I am very encouraged by these initiatives. It is time for Montclair and its residents to stop sitting on the laurels of the past, and be a progressive leader of the future. These initiatives can help us get there.” — Selma Avdicevic
“Time for a modern BOE” — Jaime Bedrin
“I support open and free elections for the BOE in Montclair. Grateful for everyone’s efforts on this front.” — Elizabeth Cuccaro
“I’m a Montclair resident who previously lived in South Orange, where every year voters get their say on who sits on the BOE. Montclair may have a lot going for it, but on voter participation in education for now South Orange and Maplewood clearly have the edge.” — Richard Eigen
