State Legislature Candidates Pick Up Endorsements

VOTE-3STATE — State Sen. Nicholas Scuatri, Assemblyman Jerry Green and Assemblywoman Linda Stender recently earned endorsements from the New Jersey State PBA and the New Jersey Education Association Political Action Committee.

“Scutari, Green and Stender support our fight to enhance staffing levels, have voted in the Senate and Assembly to provide our officers with protection and have stood up to those who wanted to eliminate collective bargaining for our members,” said Keith Dunn, executive vice president of the NJ State PBA. “They are strong advocates for our state, county and local law enforcement officers publicly and behind the scenes. As a constituent, I know personally that they are there for us when we need them.”

State Senate candidate David Stahl and State Assembly candidate Rob Bengivenga were endorsed by  the Political Action Committee of The Latino Leadership Alliance, the largest Latino advocacy organization in New Jersey representing professional leaders and Latino organizations across the state.

“The LLANJ PAC endorses candidates who are truly committed to work with the Latino Leadership Alliance on issues impacting Latinos and New Jersey residents,” said Martin Perez, Esq., President of LLANJ-PAC. “We do not support or endorse candidates based on their political party affiliation, ethnicity or gender, but rather on issues, and their track records showing they are indeed doing their best for the people they have represented or would like to represent.”

Scutari, Green and Stender are Democrats representing the 22nd Legislative District, which includes Clark, Dunellen, Fanwood, Green Brook, Linden, Middlesex Borough, North Plainfield, Plainfield, Rahway, Scotch Plains, and Winfield.

Stahl, formerly a Democrat, and Bengivenga are Republicans seeking election in the 18th Legislative District, which includes East Brunswick, Edison, Helmetta, Metuchen, South Plainfield, South River, and Spotswood.
