Central Labor Council backs Jackson in Trenton

The Mercer County Central Labor Council today endorsed Eric Jackson for mayor of Trenton.

“The men and women of organized labor strongly stand with Eric Jackson because his priorities are our priorities: bringing jobs and economic development to Trenton and improving local schools so that children grow up to be part of an educated workforce. We are proud to endorse his candidacy and look forward to working him once he is elected mayor,” said Michael Maloney, President of the Mercer County Central Labor Council.

“Whether it is taking guns off our streets, improving education for our kids or bringing jobs to Trenton, all of us are responsible for working together to improve the future of our city,” said Jackson. “I am proud to receive the endorsement of so many hard working men and women all over Trenton, who share my commitment to improving the lives of every single one of our residents.”

The director of Public Works for the City of Plainfield and past DPW director in Trenton, Jackson is seeking the mayoralty in a six-person field that includes former Trenton Police Director Jim Golden, former Housing Authority Director Oliver Leggett, Mercer County Deputy Clerk Walker Worthy, U.S. Army veteran Paul Perez, and Councilwoman Kathy McBride
