The influential Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) today endorsed Gordon Johnson for the Democratic nomination for State Senate in the 37th district.

“For the two decades I have known him, Gordon Johnson has been steadfastly and reliably on the right side of issues that matter most to LIUNA members and to working families everywhere,” said Raymond Pocino, the union’s international vice president and eastern regional manager.

Johnson faces Valerie Vainieri Huttle in the race to succeed Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg in the Bergen County legislative district.

“Beyond the issues, there is also the man and his character. Gordon Johnson is a leader who takes his oath of office seriously. He works hard, listens carefully, and strives for results, not attention,” Pocino stated.  “There is much more work to do in New Jersey—to support families, invest in our communities, and grow the economy—and Gordon Johnson is the right kind of leader to get things done.”

Johnson was elected to the State Assembly in 2001 and Vainieri Huttle in 2005.
