The Carpenters Back Walker Worthy for Mayor of Trenton

The Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters (NRCC) today threw its support behind the Trenton mayoral campaign of Walker Worthy, the deputy clerk of Mercer County running in the May 8th nonpartisan election.

“Trenton is in desperate need of responsible redevelopment and I am proud to join with Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters’ Local 254 to make sure that we get Trenton residents back to work with the union representation they need to take care of themselves and their families,” said Worthy. “My administration will prioritize smart development projects that provide opportunities for trade workers to earn a living wage. As President of the Carpenters Local 254, and a Mercer County Freeholder, Anthony Verrelli is an expert on fair labor practices, and how to work with local government to get things done. I would like to thank President Verrelli for believing in my vision for a better Trenton and lending his support to our campaign.” 

The Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters in a statement noted that the organization only endorses candidates who support Davis-Bacon protections, encourage the use of Project Labor Agreements, fight 1099 Worker Misclassification and support fair wages and benefits for working people. 

“We are pleased to endorse Walker Worthy’s election bid for Mayor of Trenton and will fully support his campaign through get out the vote efforts,” said Verrelli. “Walker Worthy believes in supporting strong workers’ rights and we look forward to working with him when he’s elected as the Mayor of Trenton.”
