Senate President Steve Sweeney is the latest Democratic official to give a nod of approval to Sen. Barbara Buono’s choice running mate.
The state’s top Senate lawmaker referred to the Democratic gubernatorial nominee’s pick for lieutenant governor as a “selfless advocate” for New Jersey’s working families. Sweeney’s statement comes after news broke that Buono picked the executive vice president of SEIU 1199, Milly Silva, as her running mate.
“I want to congratulate Milly Silva on her selection as the Lieutenant Governor Candidate by Senator Barbara Buono,” Sweeney said.
“As someone who has been a tireless and selfless advocate for middle class and working class New Jerseyans, Milly brings unquestionable experience and leadership credentials to the Democratic ticket,” he said. “Milly is the leader of 7,000 of some of the most compassionate and hardest working individuals in the state. A working mother who understands the vital need to invest in this state, Milly will make a tremendous Lieutenant Governor."
