The New Jersey State AFL-CIO is excited to report its 866th labor candidate victory with the election of union brother Tony Ciasca of IBEW 94 to the Burlington Township Board of Fire Commissioners.
Brother Ciasca won his re-election easily because of the support of the New Jersey State AFL-CIO’s labor candidate program, the Burlington County Central Labor Council and IBEW 94. These combined efforts including direct mail and phone banking propelled Brother Ciasca to election victory. We thank all our affiliates and staff for their hard work in this successful effort.
