UNION – Rep. Albio Sires (NJ-8) today endorsed Union County Sheriff Joseph Cryan to be the next representative of the 20th legislative district in the State Senate. Rep. Sires is the former Speaker of New Jersey’s General Assembly and is currently on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and Transportation and House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“I had the opportunity to work with Joe in the General Assembly when I was Speaker and he was always able to distinguish himself as a leader in the fights that mattered for New Jersey’s middle class taxpayers,” said Rep. Sires. “As County Sheriff, Joe Cryan has been on the frontlines working every day to help secure our neighborhoods for our families and I know that is just part of the skill set he will bring down to Trenton. I am proud to endorse Joe in his campaign to be the next State Senator representing the 20th legislative district and am looking forward to doing whatever I can towards helping him achieve that goal.”
Cryan’s campaign for State Senate has previously been endorsed by Union County Chairman Jerry Green, Democratic State Chairman John Currie, former U.S. Ambassador to Germany, Phil Murphy, 20th district Assembly members Annette Quijano and Jamel Holley, Elizabeth Mayor J. Christian Bollwage, State Senator Nick Scutari, NJSPBA President Patrick Colligan and a number of others.
