MOORESTOWN N.J. – Today, Congressman Andy Kim announced the endorsement of the New Jersey Organizing Project in his race for U.S. Senate. The NJOP is a statewide grassroots organization made up of everyday New Jerseyans who work to build community power to win solutions for issues that affect their daily lives. They have fought to protect New Jersey communities from things like extreme weather and sea level rise, have worked to end preventable overdoses and find fair recovery for survivors of natural disasters like Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Ida, and have stood up for the quality affordable care New Jersey families deserve.

“NJOP has grown into an incredible people-powered movement that has successfully helped New Jersey families receive life saving resources and compensation needed to get back on their feet following Superstorm Sandy,” said Congressman Andy Kim. “It has been an honor working with NJOP to help those in NJ-03 find relief, and I know our work together will only expand in the Senate to help families across the state.”

“[NJOP] played a role in getting Congressman Kim to where he is today – and since then, he’s stayed with us,” said NJOP in a statement announcing the endorsement. “Our new Senator can’t be someone who puts profits over people’s lives, and who only listens to corporations and donors with lots of money and fancy titles. We want a representative who will listen to us and work to govern alongside us.”

Throughout his time in Congress, Andy has been a consistent ally of the New Jersey Organizing Project. He was instrumental in helping secure Super Storm Sandy clawback relief, helped make FEMA forgiveness possible so that Jersey Shore towns did not have to pay back $26 million in federal loans taken out in the Sandy aftermath, and was instrumental in helping pass the Mainstreaming Addiction Treatment Act to help with opioid addiction recovery. He also helped pass the Resilient Highways Act

MOORESTOWN N.J. – Today, Congressman Andy Kim announced the endorsement of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen in his race for U.S. Senate. The BLET is North America’s oldest rail labor union, and is a division of the Teamsters Union. The BLET exists to promote and protect the rights, interests, and safety of its members through solidarity, aggressive representation, and education. They represent 900 locomotive engineers, conductors, brakemen, firemen, switchmen, hostlers and other train service employees in New Jersey from freight and passenger rail service. 

“BLET members work around the clock to get commuters to their jobs on time and families home for dinner safely, even through these unprecedented times of delays and breakdowns,” said Congressman Andy Kim. “It is imperative that these members have support and proper working conditions to navigate these tough times, and I thank the BLET for trusting me to be a voice for them as we continue to push for improved rail conditions.” 

“Our members are thankful to Congressman Andy Kim and we proudly endorse him because he has helped pass legislation to secure $2.8 million in funds for NJ freight rail infrastructure, which will improve supply chains, create more union jobs, and improve rail safety throughout our communities,” said the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen. “Congressman Andy Kim is a true leader, and the labor movement can always count on him. We look forward to working with him in the Senate.”

이민자의 아들이자 뉴저지 공립학교를 졸업한 앤디 김 하원의원은 자신의 고향을 대표해 의회에서 일하게 된 것을 자랑스럽게 생각합니다. 앤디는 두 아들을 둔 젊은 아버지로서 우리의 무너진 정치를 바로잡기 위해 노력하는 새로운 세대의 리더십을 대표합니다. 전직 국가 안보 관리였던 앤디는 오바마 대통령에게 대테러 자문을 했고, 아프가니스탄에서 4성 장군을 도우며 근무하기도 했습니다.
