New Jersey State AFL-CIO-endorsed candidate Roy Cho received a strong commitment from organized labor on Wednesday to help him win New Jersey’s 5th District congressional election.
Union members who are volunteering on Cho’s campaign leading up to the Nov. 4 election met the pro-labor Democrat who is challenging Tea Party extremist Scott Garrett at an event co-hosted by the New Jersey State AFL-CIO, Bergen and Passaic County Central Labor Councils and the Bergen County Building Trades Council, and held at IBEW Local 164 in Paramus.

Cho is an inspiring and energetic leader who would put everyday working Americans first by focusing on jobs, transportation and public education. He believes in supporting small- and medium-sized businesses in order to remain competitive in a global economy. He favors the creation of public-private partnerships and the creation of good union jobs to revitalize roads and bridges. And, he recognizes the need to strengthen public education and support public teachers who are training our future innovators and leaders.
Cho is the son of Korean immigrants who came to the United States in search of work and opportunity. As both a corporate attorney and volunteer mentor to first-generation college students, he understands the importance of keeping the promise of America alive for current and future generations.
Electing Roy Cho to represent the 5th District would be a victory for labor and a win for New Jersey’s middle-class.
