Orange Mayor-Elect Dwayne Warren today endorsed Newark Council President Donald Payne, Jr., for Congress in the 10th district.

"Working people in Orange deserve a Congressman who will fight for them," said Warren. "That's what Donald Payne has done in Newark, and it's what he'll do for the whole Congressional district," said Warren, who won the contest to be Orange's next mayor on May 8th. "He knows how to create jobs, and he does things the right way."

The Communications Workers of America (CWA) took credit for propelling Warren to victory over incumbent Eldridge Hawkins, Jr. 

In the CD 10 race, they endorsed West Ward Councilman Ronald C. Rice over Payne.

But Warren didn't follow suit. 

"Dwayne won Orange with his energy and ideas, like his Recovery Plan. We're both focused on jobs, economic development, and good government. Dwayne focused on the right ideas, and he was successful," said Payne. "I'm working to follow the same path to victory.

"I'm really looking forward to working with Mayor-Elect Warren and fighting for jobs in Orange and across the district," the candidate added.

quote of the day

“It’s not the first time, it’s not the last time, that a nominee with an issue is going to come up. But you can’t just say, therefore no one else goes forth. That nominee has nothing to do with these nominees, and the governor made a substitution for him anyway.” - state Sen. Ronald L. Rice (D-28)
