Suleiman Condemns GOP's Anti-Union Rhetoric

Atlantic County Democratic Chairman Michael Suleiman condemned the Atlantic County Republicans for their anti-union rhetoric and attacks on the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters:

"I am deeply troubled by the anti-union rhetoric emanating from the Atlantic County Republicans. They believe the Koch brothers should be allowed to spend billions of dollars influencing our elections, but a labor union supports one of its own for elected office and that’s bad? This is especially ironic considering Republicans in Atlantic County have received $120,000 from the Carpenters Union since 2006.
 
"I’m proud that our candidates have the support of the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters, and I’m especially proud that we have the opportunity to elect Union carpenter Steve Stokes to the Freeholder Board on Tuesday.
 
"Our party will always stand side-by-side with organized labor to improve the lives of working families in Atlantic County."
