The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) New Jersey State Council, representing 40,000 service workers in the private and public sectors around the state, today announced its endorsements for the November 2012 elections.

“The November 2012 elections mark a turning point for our nation and we need leaders in the White House, in Congress and the Statehouse in Trenton who not only understand the issues of our working men and women and families, but who will fight for us,” said Rahaman Muhammad, Council President, and  President of SEIU Local 617.

“We are backing officeholders and candidates who will address the pervasive income inequality and unconscionable high unemployment rates, and fight to protect and strengthen Medicaid and Medicare programs that are vitally important to working class families and seniors throughout New Jersey,” said Milly Silva, Council Vice President and Executive Vice President of 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, New Jersey Region.

“It’s more important than ever that we have decision-makers who recognize that actions supporting corporate greed and tax cuts for the rich compromise the lives, future and dignity of our working and middle-class families,” said Kevin Brown, Council Secretary/Treasurer and the New Jersey State Director for Local 32BJ.
