Millville mayor endorses Harrison in NJ-2

By David Wildstein, June 26 2020 10:29 pm

Millville Mayor Michael Santiago has endorsed Brigid Callahan Harrison for the Democratic nomination for Congress in New Jersey’s 2nd district.

“Brigid and I share many similar experiences and values. We have both faced tremendous adversity in our lives and have experienced firsthand the threat a lack of health care can have on our families,” Santiago said.

Santiago was joined by a group of Hispanic leaders, including Vineland Councilmen Albert Vargas and David Acosta, former Councilwoman Sheen Santiago, Vineland Democratic Municipal Chairman Thomasa Gonzalez, State Sen. Nilsa Cruz-Perez (D-Barrington), and Assemblywoman Gabriela Mosquera (D-Gloucester Township).

“Brigid was the first and only candidate to bring people together and create a unified, thorough, and detailed COVID recovery plan for our area and she actually understands the policies needed to revitalize South Jersey’s economy,” Santiago said. “Right now, this moment does not allow us to take any risks. The stakes are far too high.”

One of Harrison’s primary rivals, Amy Kennedy, has the backing of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and released a list of Hispanic endorsements earlier this week.
