Three Republican legislative candidates in the 21st district – Jon Bramnick, Nancy Munoz and Michele Matsikoudis – have received the endorsement of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 825.
“In the new age political arena, very few if any politicians actually keep their word – Jon Bramnick has been the exception his entire career. As COVID-19 continues into year two of crippling our state and its economy, something as simple as doing what you say has never been more important,” said Greg Lalevee, the IUOE Local 825 business manager. “Along with Nancy and Michele, Local 825’s interests will be well served in the legislature.”
Lalevee and his union have been among Bramnick’s strongest boosters, spending over $400,000 to defend him when he sought re-election two years ago.
Bramnick, the current Assembly minority leader, is running for an open State Senate seat. Munoz is seeking re-election and Matsikoudis, a New Providence councilwoman, is competing for Bramnick’s seat.
Senate Minority Leader Thomas Kean, Jr. is not seeking re-election after twenty years in the legislature in order to focus on his rematch with Rep. Tom Malinowski next year. Bramnick faces Democrat Joseph Signorello, the mayor of Roselle Park, for the Senate seat.
