(Bridgewater, NJ) Today, Tom Malinowski received the endorsement of the Communication Workers of America New Jersey in his bid to unseat Rep. Leonard Lance.
“We are taking back the House this November, and Leonard Lance is near the top of the list of Representatives who’ve spent too much time catering to special interests in Washington and not enough time worrying about their constituents in New Jersey. We believe Tom Malinowski has a great shot to beat Leonard Lance, and we’re going to do everything we can to help make that happen,” said CWA New Jersey Director Hetty Rosenstein.
“I am grateful for CWA’s support and pledge to continue my strong advocacy for the issues they champion: a $15 minimum wage, strong collective bargaining rights, and robust worker protections. We’re taking back the House in November and we’re making it a friendlier place for working women and men,” remarked Malinowski.
Tom is former Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor. He oversaw the State Department’s Office of International Labor Affairs, serving as the chief advocate for worker protections in our international trade agreements and providing support to trade union activists around the world.
