Latino group to endorse Perez in Trenton mayor’s race, Chivukula in CD 12 Democratic primary race today

A Latino business and community group based in Trenton will make two June election endorsements today on the steps of Trenton’s City Hall. 

The group, known as the Latino Business and Community Leaders Panel of Trenton, will endorse Paul Perez in the June 10 Trenton mayoral runoff election and will back state Assemblyman Upendra Chivukula (D-17) in the June 3 Twelfth Congressional District Democratic primary. 

“Both [Perez] and [Chivukula] respected us enough to come talk to us,” said Manny Segura, former Trenton councilman and 2010 mayoral candidate, who is the Latino group’s chairperson. “They engaged us.” 

The endorsements will take place at Trenton City Hall, 319 East State Street, at 5:30 p.m..
