Simon receives backing of operating engineers local

Assemblywoman Donna Simon (R-16) accepted the endorsement of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 825 Political Action and Education Committee during a tour of their training center in South Brunswick.

“After visiting the training center and getting a firsthand tour of the facility, as well as be able to speak one-on-one with the workers there, you can’t help but be impressed with the skill, dedication and passion of the Operating Engineers Local 825 leadership and rank-and-file members,” said Simon, who is running to complete the unexpired term created by the passing of former Assemblyman Pete Biondi last November.  “I am proud to have their support and pledge to do everything in my power to continue growing our economy and putting people back to work.”

Business Manager Greg Lalevee said Simon has impressed during her first few months in Trenton. 

“In her short time in the Assembly, Donna has proven herself to be someone who is focused on promoting common sense policies that will help to create jobs and economic opportunity for working families in Middlesex, Mercer, Somerset and Hunterdon counties,” said Lalevee.  “A good number of our members and their families live and work in Assemblywoman Simon’s district, and look forward to supporting her candidacy this November.”

Simon is running against Democratic challenger Marie Corfield of Hunterdon County. Simon receives backing of operating engineers local
