The Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters (NRCC) is pleased to announce its endorsement of Paterson Councilman Andre Sayegh in his campaign for Mayor of Paterson, NJ. Sayegh is running in the May 8th Mayoral election.
“I am humbled by the support and recognition from the hardworking members of the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters,” said Councilman Sayegh. “The key to Paterson’s future will be our ability to make our city safer. Our focus will also be on creating partnerships that will help drive new development and create good paying jobs for Patersonians. I look forward to the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters being one of our partners, as we work tirelessly to unite and reinvest in Paterson.”
The Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters takes the issue of endorsing elected official candidates seriously and only endorses candidates who hold the same values as we do of protecting and preserving workers’ rights. We only provide endorsements to candidates that support Davis-Bacon protections, encourage the use of Project Labor Agreements, fight 1099 Worker Misclassification and support fair wages and benefits for working people.
“We are pleased to endorse Councilman Andre Sayegh’s election bid for Mayor of Paterson and will fully support his campaign through get out the vote efforts,” said Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters’ Executive Secretary-Treasurer John Ballantyne. “Councilman Sayegh believes in supporting strong workers’ rights and stands with the NRCC’s beliefs that fair wages, health and retirement benefits should make up the fabric of the middle-class.”
Andre Sayegh has served on the Paterson City Council since 2008 and represents Paterson’s sixth ward. He previously served on the Paterson Board of Education.
