By David Wildstein

The New Jersey Building and Construction Trades Council has endorsed Rep. Leonard Lance (R-Clinton) for re-election in New Jersey’s 7th district..

“Congressman Leonard Lance has stood behind the New Jersey Building Trades, his vote, at times, tipping the scale in our favor,” said NJBCTC President Bill Mullen. “Congressman Lance has never wavered on a building trade issue and we will never waver on him.”

Lance is the second New Jersey Republican to win the building trades endorsement; they group is also backing the re-election of Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-Toms River).  Mullen has said he is sticking with the two Republicans even as national unions are pushing for Democratic control of the U.S. House of Representatives.

“I am truly honored to have the support of the hardworking men and women of New Jersey’s building trades and I look forward to continue working with them to advocate for infrastructure, local jobs and fair wages in New Jersey,” said Lance. “People in Washington could certainly learn a lesson about hard work from New Jersey’s building trades workers.”

The New Jersey State Building and Construction Trades Council works with thirteen Local Building Trades Councils, including the Boilermakers, Bricklayers, Carpenters, Electricians, Elevator Constructors, Painters, Insulators, Iron Workers, Laborers, Operating Engineers, Operative Plasterers and Cement Masons, Pipe Trades, Roofers, Sheet Metal Workers and Teamsters.
