Sabre Burroughs

Democratic Candidate for Essex County Freeholder At Large

Address: Newark, NJ
Brief info

My name is Sabre Burroughs, best known as Sabre Bee. I am a Newark, New Jersey based community advocate and educator in social justice and vegan nutrition. As Co-founder of the Newark Water Coalition, I have engaged with residents in and around my home city on issues of water rights since 2018, as well as affordable housing with Newark Homes for All. Currently, I am running for Freeholder-at-Large in Essex County (line B).

Throughout my childhood, I grew up in a family of activists and organizers, which gave me early training in effective community engagement and methods of building social cohesion. I first began to apply and build on these skills in my role as Vice President of my high school class, and later as Vice President of the Amnesty International chapter at the College of New Jersey. In addition, I also was a student-leader of PRISM (an on-campus LGBTQIA advocacy organization), leading public relations and communications.

I hold a dual BA in English and Women & Gender Studies (Poli. Sci. minor), from the College of New Jersey where I graduated Magna Cum Laude. I also completed a certification in Sports Nutrition with the International Sports Medicine Association (AAAI/ISMA).

    Greetings Sabre,

    I am a long time resident of South Orange. I am active in my community on various projects and roles including arts & culture. My wife and I are also outdoor rec enthusiasts and quite active with the South Mountain reservation. I am doing research on the Line B ticket for Essec County Freeholders.
    In particular I am interested in your position on the Turtle Back Zoo amphitheater project and whether you oppose the proposed construction of this new facility. I am opposed to it and have participated in several protest rallys against it.

    Is there an opportunity to discuss this issue? Also can anyone from your campaign direct me to an area where I can learn more about the Line B platform or positions on the issues? My cell is 973 879-9704, Studio is 973 378-3677

    Good luck with the campaign and look forward to your reply!
