Today, the Communications Workers of America (CWA) endorsed Adrian Mapp to be Plainfield’s next Mayor.
“Now more than ever, New Jersey’s municipalities need progressive leaders who stand up for working families. That’s why we’re eagerly endorsing Adrian Mapp,” said Hetty Rosenstein, CWA NJ Director. “CWA is committed to standing alongside those who share and fight for our values. We look forward to helping Adrian win on June 4th.”
After shivering on the outside of the Union County Democratic Committee in his last challenge of Mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs, Mapp this time has the backing of the county party.
That makes him the favorite this time against Robinson-Briggs, who’s running for a third term without the backing of local kingpin Assemblyman Jerry Green (D-22).
“I’m proud to have the CWA’s endorsement,” said Mapp. “We share the same progressive values to spur economic growth, create opportunity and bring people together. I am honored
that CWA is standing alongside my campaign to move Plainfield forward.”
The Communications Workers of America (AFL-CIO) represents both private sector and public workers. CWA represents more than 70,000 working families in New Jersey, including over 40,000 state workers, 15,000 county and municipal workers, and thousands of workers in the telecommunications, airlines, health care and direct care industries.
