Hackensack United for Progress receives major endorsement
HACKENSACK, NJ – Hackensack United for Progress has proudly accepted the endorsement of the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters (NRCC) for Hackensack City Council. The NRCC represents nearly 40,000 hardworking men and women in various states, including New Jersey. It is one of the largest trade unions on the east coast. They announced their endorsement today at an event in Hackensack.
According to John Ballantyne, Executive-Secretary Treasurer of the NRCC, they made their decision because of the need for “political leaders who will defend the middle class and its workers.” He expressed his union’s confidence that the Hackensack United for Progress candidates “will fight for hardworking men and women in the Hackensack community.”
“We are honored to have the support of the men and women who truly are the backbone of our society,” said candidate Rommy Buttafuoco, herself a Hackensack Education Association (HEA) union member. One of her Hackensack United for Progress running mates, Mike Williams, a Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) union member, added, “Without the NRCC and its members, there would be no ‘Progress’ in our communities.”
Both candidates have already received the support of their own unions and, along with their running mates, look forward to working with the NRCC and all of the unions, groups and organizations who fight every day to protect and improve the quality of life for working families.
Hackensack United for Progress candidates Lara Rodriguez, Jason Some, Michael Williams, Carlos Merino, and Rommy Buttafuoco have a long history of community service and are eager to restore honest and responsible government to Hackensack. They plan to increase ratables through responsible development and end the reckless borrowing which is destroying Hackensack’s future. They plan to hire and promote employees based on merit and put an end to the cronyism and unlawful conduct of the Labrosse/Canestrino Administration.
Hackensack United for Progress is a broad-based coalition of residents, merchants, and organizations united to end the chaos and corruption of the past four years and put Hackensack back on the path to success as a community.
