Choi receives local SEIU support

EDISON – Members of 32BJ Service Employees International Union (SEIU) today voted unanimously to endorse Mayor Jun Choi for re-election.

“For the past four years Jun Choi has proven to be a tireless champion for the working class,” said Kevin Brown, the local’s area director. “32BJ members can rely on him to help improve wage and benefit standards for hard-working families and raise the quality of life through improved education, environmental protection and more economic opportunities for Edison residents.”

According to a press release issued by the organization, 32BJ claims nearly 8,000 members in New Jersey and hundreds who live or work in Edison.

“On behalf of the Choi campaign, 32BJ will commit to putting its members on the ground to knock on doors, make phone calls and drive turnout on Election Day,” said Brown.

“I am grateful for this endorsement,” Choi said. “32BJ represents the backbone of New Jersey’s working class and I have worked hard to keep Edison affordable to by maintaining a stable tax rate for Edison residents over the past four years.”

Choi is running in the June 2 Democratic Primary against Councilwoman Antonia Ricigliano and union carpenter Willie Araujo.
