The New Jersey Laborers Union today officially endorsed Mayor Jerramiah Healy for re-election as Mayor of Jersey City.
The 20,000-member union cited Healy’s accomplishments in making Jersey City a more livable place for residents and more attractive for business.
“Jerry Healy helped usher in an era of unprecedented growth and community development in Jersey City and did so in a way that never sacrificed one for the other,” said Raymond M. Pocino, vice president and eastern regional manager of the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA). “Even in difficult economic times, Mayor Healy kept Jersey City moving forward and he deserves to be re-elected.”
LIUNA Local 3 Business Manager Jose Colon said his fellow members are highly motivated in their support.
“We have a large contingent of members who reside in Jersey City and we plan to be very busy up to and including Election Day on May 14th,” said Colon.
Mayor Healy was grateful for the union’s support.
“I’ve always worked hard to support Jersey City’s working families, and they will always remain at the forefront of all that I do,” said Healy. “It’s an honor to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with LIUNA in the fight to keep the progress going for everyone who lives and works in Jersey City.”
