CWA ENDORSES CRYAN FOR STATE SENATE IN LD-20
Cryan is Best Candidate For New Jersey’s Working Men & Women
(TRENTON, NEW JERSEY) – The Communications Workers of America (CWA) enthusiastically endorses State Senator Joe Cryan for re-election in New Jersey’s 20th Legislative District.
“New Jersey needs more elected leaders like Joe Cryan,” said Hetty Rosenstein, CWA NJ Area Director. “Joe Cryan listens carefully – basing his actions on science and facts. He’s unbelievably hard working. He’ll take your call before 7 a.m., and then follow up with an answer by 9 p.m. that night. Joe Cryan stands up for all working people, and CWA is excited and proud to stand with him.”
“I appreciate the support of the hard-working men and women of the CWA in this upcoming primary,” said Sen. Joe Cryan. “Now more than ever we need to make sure that working families are able to earn a fair wage in a safe working environment. And I will continue to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the CWA to make sure those goals are accomplished.”
“Whether it was during the fights over the past few years to protect our right to negotiate over things as fundamental as our members’ healthcare and collective bargaining, or whether it is putting workers’ safety first during this past year’s pandemic, Joe Cryan has consistently had our backs,” said Ken McNamara, CWA Local 1037 President. “Cryan stands up for the hard-working people he represents. In fact, he stands up for all the working families here in New Jersey.”
“Whether you live or work in Elizabeth, Hillside, Roselle, Union or anywhere for that matter, you never have to wonder if Joe Cryan is working for your best interests,” said Colleen Pierce, CWA Local 1080 President. “Senator Cryan cares about people and always has us at the forefront of his mind.”
CWA represents more than 70,000 working families in The Garden State – including 40,000 state workers, 15,000 county and municipal workers, and thousands of workers in the telecommunications, airlines, healthcare and direct care industries. Many of them live or work in LD-20.
Primary Day is Tuesday, June 8th, 2021.
