Sam Fiocchi says that State Sen. Bob Andrzejczak “took a page from the old Jeff Van Drew playbook” when he voted against a bill to raise the minimum wage to $15-per-hour.
“He was given a free pass and voted no on the minimum wage bill yesterday, which of course gives him the ability to claim he did what his district wanted,” said Fiocchi, a former assemblyman who is seeking the Republican nomination to challenge Andrzejczak in the November special election.
Fiocchi said that Andrzejczak did not make any public argument against the bill or its effect on seasonal workers in the 1st district.
“Simply voting no, without putting up a fight for our district isn’t enough,” Fiocchi said.
Andrzejczak joined the Senate on January 15 to replace Van Drew, who resigned to take his seat in Congress.
