Another day, another union endorsement for Bill Baroni.
Today the Central New Jersey Council of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees threw their support behind the Republican Assemblyman and state Senate candidate. The group represents about 11,000 government employees.
"Bill Baroni has been a steadfast voice of support for New Jersey's public workers and AFSCME is proud to endorse his run for State Senate," said AFSCME Executive Director Gerard J. Meara.
Baroni is running against Democrat Seema Singh, the former state ratepayer advocate, for the 14th district state Senate seat being vacated by Republican Peter Inverso. He has already been endorsed by the New Jersey AFL-CIO, The Communications Workers for America Local 1039, the New Jersey Education Association, the Heat and Frost Workers Local 89 and several othher unions. Singh has been endorsed by the Middlesex County Labor Council.
