As a fellow legislator, and, most importantly, as his constituent, I am proud to support the re-election of Congressman Andy Kim.”
“I’m honored to have the support of State Senator Troy Singleton. Troy is a true public servant who knows what it means to serve his community with honor and integrity,” said Congressman Andy Kim. “Troy knows that small businesses are the foundation of our communities here in New Jersey, and I’m consistently inspired by the work he does creating environments where they can grow and thrive.”
