The Northeastern Regional Council of Carpenters would like to congratulate Executive Secretary-Treasurer John Ballantyne (#14), Political Director Lizette Delgado-Polanco (#47) & President of the Carpenter Contractor Trust Kevin McCabe (#6) for making the Insider NJ's Power 100 list.
Executive Secretary-Treasuer, John Ballantyne
It was a very big year for our Executive Secretary-Treasurer John Ballantyne. In addition to Building Trades guy Sweeney being placed back into the state senate, McCabe and Assemblyman Troy Singleton (both Carpenters professionals) respectively nailed down the speakership for Coughlin and a Senate seat in LD7 as well. NRCC's John Ballantyne was one of the biggest contributors to Sweeney’s rugged reelection bid.
Political Director, Lizette Delgado-Polanco
The Vice-Chair of the Democratic State Committee and Political Director of the NRCC can take you apart from several different angles. Most significantly, Lizette's sturdy foundation in labor has her reminiscent of her days as political director of SEIU 32BJ. Since she's been with the Northeastern Regional Council of Carpenters, Lizette has added greatly to the strong group of powerful, influential and political minds including Mueller, Singleton and McCabe.

The Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters would like to congratulate candidate Phil Murphy, Sheila Oliver and the rest of our winning candidates for their victories in the 2017 Election. Over the course of his campaign, Murphy has stood firmly with the NRCC and has been a strong advocate for organized labor, workers' rights and fair wages for Union carpenters. The ongoing dedication of our members and team has also resulted in an overwhelming victory for “Vote NO” on the NY Constitutional Convention which will protect the rights, wages & benefits of nearly 40,000 men and women carpenters. In addition, we would like to recognize the victory of Larry Krasner, the new City District Attorney for Philadelphia, PA, who firmly aligns with the beliefs and strategic direction of the NRCC.Read more >
