Atlantic County State Sen. James ?Sonny? McCullough, already endorsed by the 30,000-member New Jersey State Policemen?s Benevolent Association, today announced he?s received the endorsement of a second statewide law enforcement group, the Probation Association of New Jersey.
The Association represents 2,800 probation officers and supervisors throughout the state.
?This show of support for my candidacy from two major law enforcement organizations is a recognition of my efforts on behalf of the men and women who place their lives on the line everyday to protect us,? McCullough said. ?Their dedication and the courage they display each and every day deserves the admiration of all of us. I am honored to accept their support.?
McCullough also today received endorsements from organized labor and two business groups.
Local 1034 of the Communications Workers of America, representing pubic employees.
The National Federation of Independent Business, representing small businesses throughout the state.
The Private Enterprise Political Action committee (PENPAC), a group affiliated with the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey.
?The endorsement of my candidacy by these groups is both most valuable and shows the depth of support I have been able to gather,? McCullough said. ?I am pleased to have the support of the business groups who represent the backbone of our state?s economy and job creation. Strengthening and improving New Jersey?s business climate has always been a top priority and I will continue to pursue that goal as a member of the Senate.?
?The endorsement by Local 1034 is a recognition of my understanding of the issues important to working men and women and of my ability to work effectively to address their concerns,? he said.
