April 30, 2018 – Edison, New Jersey – The Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters (NRCC) is pleased to announce its endorsement of Walker Worthy in his campaign for Mayor of Trenton, NJ. The NRCC will announce its endorsement with Worthy today at 1 p.m. at 12 S. Warren Street in Trenton. Worthy is running in the May 8th election for Trenton Mayor.
“Trenton is in desperate need of responsible redevelopment and I am proud to join with Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters’ Local 254 to make sure that we get Trenton residents back to work with the union representation they need to take care of themselves and their families,” said Worthy. “My administration will prioritize smart development projects that provide opportunities for trade workers to earn a living wage. As President of the Carpenters Local 254, and a Mercer County Freeholder, Anthony Verrelli is an expert on fair labor practices, and how to work with local government to get things done. I would like to thank President Verrelli for believing in my vision for a better Trenton and lending his support to our campaign.”
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 Walker Worthy’s election bid for Mayor of Trenton and will fully support his campaign through get out the vote efforts,” said Verrelli. “Walker Worthy believes in supporting strong workers’ rights and we look forward to working with him when he’s elected as the Mayor of Trenton.”
