Jersey City Councilman and Mayoral Candidate Steven Fulop announced today that he has received the endorsement of the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters (NRCC) and the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) Local 825.
The endorsements from two of the state’s largest building trades’ unions come on the heels of the major union endorsement for Fulop made by SEIU Local 32BJ.
“I am proud to receive these endorsements from both unions that represent the hard-working men and women of our city,” Fulop said. “Both the Carpenters and Operating Engineers know that, as Mayor, I will fight for working families to ensure they have opportunities for employments, quality schools for their children and safe neighborhoods in which to raise their families.
“Also, as mayor, I will make sure Jersey City’s economy is expanding by working in partnership with the business community and building trades to expand training programs for our young workers,” Fulop added. “We can tackle the problems facing Jersey City by putting people to work with good jobs.”

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
