Manuel Segura, Caucus Chairman, presented the following statement:

“The Dominican American Elected and Appointed Officials Caucus of NJ unanimously endorses the candidacy of these fine representatives because of their proven track record as highly capable and effective leaders.

Senator Booker and Congressman Pascrell have been at the forefront of immigration reform, raising the minimum wage, eliminating health disparities and are strong advocates for hardworking families, having recently co-sponsored the In Home CARE Act, which seeks to help family caregivers.

Congressman Pallone has our full confidence and support as a leader in healthcare reform, and his support for eliminating tax breaks for companies that move jobs overseas. Congressman Pallone is a supportive friend of the Caucus and we proudly offer him our endorsement.

Roy Cho is a well-educated, persevering candidate, who represents a breath of fresh air in New Jersey’s 5th Congressional District. He believes that every child should be afforded the best education to succeed; spending on public and vocational schools and raising the minimum wage. He is our choice to represent New Jersey’s 5th Congressional District.

As well, the Caucus proudly endorses our local candidates: T. J. Best, Bruce James, Felicia Ortiz, Lauren Murphy and Eric Cedano for their integrity and hard work on behalf of their constituencies. We encourage our supporters to help get all of them elected in November.”

The Dominican American Elected and Appointed Officials Caucus of NJ, DAEOC-NJ is made up of more than 50 elected and appointed, Dominican American officials, in government and commissions, and represents a diversified constituency throughout the State.
