The Political Action Committee of Unite Here Local 54 announced their endorsement of Amy Kennedy for Congress in the November Election in CD2, as well as the incumbents in CD1, CD3, and CD4.
“Atlantic and Cape May counties have been hit hard by COVID-19. We have some of the highest unemployment rates in the country. Jeff Van Drew hasn’t said one thing about extending unemployment, protecting healthcare or looking out for workers in this crisis. We need someone who will stand up the working people of South Jersey in Washington D.C. Amy Kennedy is who we need. She is going to stand up for protecting healthcare, extending unemployment and make sure our economy in Atlantic City comes back strong.” Said Cate Dziegrenuk a Banquet Server at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City.
The Unite Here Local 54 PAC also announced the following Congressional Endorsements:
