AFTNJ backs Menendez

The state branch of the American Teachers’ Federation endorsed U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez on Friday.

“Senator Menendez is a proven champion of organized labor and economic justice for the nation’s working families,” said AFTNJPresident Donna Chiera. “We need to return the Senator to Washington to continue to fight against the SALT limit that punishes this region of the country for political reasons and to advocate for education policies that offer hope for poor, immigrant children to fully realize their wonderful potential.”

The group represents 30,000 school-related employees in the state.
