SEIU 617 backs Fulop for mayor

SEIU Local 617 today announced its endorsement of Steven Fulop for Mayor of Jersey City.

“Jersey City needs a fighter like Steven Fulop who is not afraid to agressively challenge a long-time political machinery that has been more interested in furthering its needs than looking out for city residents and workers,” said Rahaman Muhammad, President of SEIU Local 617.   “From the ground up, he involves the community when it comes to decisions and visions that will impact the city they love.  We believe it’s time for new leadership in Jersey City that understands the needs of working men and women, and that is why we heartily endorse Steven Fulop for Mayor.”

SEIU Local 617 represents 2500 public sector workers including members who live and work in Jersey City.
