Tom Malinowski has added another endorsement out of Union County: Freeholder Vice Chair Bette Jane Kowalski (D-Cranford) is backing the former Assistant U.S. Secretary of State for the Democratic nomination for Congress in New Jersey’s 7th district.
Kowalski is a strong political ally of State Sen. Nicholas Scutari, who has remained neutral in the race for Rep. Leonard Lance’s seat. He endorsement might be viewed as a signal of Scutari’s preference in an upcoming vote between Malinowski and Berkeley Heights banker Linda Weber.
“Tom has spent a lifetime in public service and has a demonstrated record of results. I have no doubt that he is the best candidate to take on Leonard Lance in the fall, and the candidate best prepared to be an effective leader for Union County in Congress from day one.” said Kowalski
