Linda Weber has picked up two new local backers in her bid for the Democratic nomination to challenge Rep. Leonard Lance (R-Clinton).
Former Union County Prosecutor Ted Romankow and former Summit Councilman Richard Sun announced today that they are supporting Weber in her bid in New Jersey’s seventh district.
“Leonard Lance continues to prioritize political expediency and the interests of wealthy donors over the needs of this district,” said Romankow, a former Berkeley Heights mayor. “We need representation in Congress that will stand up for the families of the 7th District.”
Sun praised Weber for her support of public transportation.
“With major rail lines serving as a conduit between the 7th District and New York City, transit access is vital to the success of our region,” Sun said. “She is also smart and thoughtful, but more than anything else she’s tough. And that’s exactly what we need. We need someone with a backbone and strength representing us in Congress. Linda will help lead us to a better future,”
