Aissa C. Heath
Aissa was born and raised in Union County by her mom and grew up in a working-class home, where working hard while fighting for others was a key value instilled in her from an early age. Aissa’s been working since she was 16 years old, doing everything from working as a maintenance worker, to working in retail, to working as a programmer and data analyst.
Aissa went to Union County College and then Rutgers University-Newark, where she received her degree in Economics. She is an active community organizer and is involved with mutual aid groups and various organizations working on political education events.
Our political machine is just that; politicians who turn the wheels of the corruption that has failed Union County. Union County doesn’t just need people who look like us, we need people who act like us, who live like us, who care like us. That's why Aissa is stepping up to run for Assembly in LD20.
