(PATERSON) – As part of the growing support for Councilman Andre Sayegh in his campaign for Mayor of Paterson, the Communication Workers of America (CWA) New Jersey today announced its endorsement.
“New Jerseyans have repeatedly voted for progressive leadership that puts working families first,” said Hetty Rosenstein, New Jersey’s CWA Director. “Andre Sayegh fits that mold. We represent nearly 1,000 families who call Paterson home, and we look forward to talking to them and their neighbors about moving Andre’s vision forward.”
Andre Sayegh expressed his gratitude to the members of the Communications Workers of America:
“As a city councilman from the 6th Ward of Paterson, I have helped lower crime and attract investment for new developments throughout my ward, I want to take what I have learned in the 6th Ward and bring it to the entire City,” said Councilman Andre Sayegh. “I am grateful for the confidence and support being provided by the members of CWA. This support in a tough race for the Mayor’s Office goes a long way toward my goal of serving the entire City of Paterson, the city I love.”
